It makes sense to go for this format given the breathtaking artwork by US artist Adam Burke (HOODED MENACE, LOSS) and the masterful layout done by Francesco Gemelli (KATATONIA, TOWARDS ATLANTIS LIGHTS) with a fitting gold colour LP to top it all off. These are limited to 100 copies only so you might want to act fast lest they all get sold out in no time!
Tentative shipping date – July end 2018
Wistful and mysterious, LURK’s music is just as interesting and multi-faceted as their cover artwork. Blending elements of doom, black and death metal into their astounding sludge template, the Finnish band is taking the sound ahead in ways hitherto unheard. Haunting, soaring melodies juxtapose with abrasive low-end riffs without hampering the overall aesthetics. Watch the band take you into a slow, hallucinatory descent towards madness where multiple worlds coalesce and still make sense – that in a nutshell is the music of LURK.
