SCALD To Release 'Fluke' Mini-CD In December

Irish metal band SCALD will release its new mini-album, "Fluke", in December via the Belfast-based record label Midhir Records. According to a press release, the CD will be released in "a specially designed digi-folder with artwork by Unhinged Art, depicting the relationship between the actions of the Catholic Church and its priests and those of a parasitic flukeworm."

Jon of Midhir Records says that "while the inclusion of the Eucharist could be seen as offensive, the concept was to create more than just a listening experience with 'Fluke'. This is a completely unique release."

Originally due for release in July, "Fluke" has been cursed with bad luck and controversy since it went to press.

The promotional video for the track "Larva", which appears on "Fluke", can be viewed below.
