Back in March, The Shaman premiered, and Lee Beamish reviewed, the debut EP D2E0M2O2 [CHAPTERS] by Shallow Black. If you missed it, we urge you to head back and check out the dark and grimy solo project from Eric Bigelow of EMBR fame. Roll on seven months, Shallow Black return, but this time with a full-length album, the aptly titled THE SECOND MANUSCRIPt.
Set to be released next Friday, 28th October, the eight tracks continue to destroy your weary senses with its tortuous blackened sludge, doom and industrial metal. And today, it’s The Shaman’s demonic pleasure to bring you the first cut with a video for the track CHAPtER tHREE (DAMN-AGE).
Now click play below and surrender to the damn-age Shallow Black are about to inflict on you…
More On Shallow Black & ‘THE SECOND MANUSCRIPt’
Shallow Black (whose name derives from hypoxia – or low oxygen – to the brain) is a dark, emotional and hypnotic music project from Alabama consisting of one lone artist. All compositions, (all drums, guitar, bass, bass VI and samples/keyboards) imagined, performed and recorded by a single solitary shadow.
Only five months ago Shallow Black released a three-song demo named D2E0M2O2 [CHAPTERS] that ran a length of 31 minutes (the length of many full-length releases) which was met with some great reviews.
Shallow Black has been working tirelessly over the past four months to mold and cast a next installment. After months of determination, endless amounts of cheap beer and creative frustration, the time for that next installment is October 28th 2022. The new musical journey is named THE SECOND MANUSCRIPt and consists of eight tracks.
