We are excited to announce that Hundred Year Old Man have joined the label and will release a debut single Black Fire on August 25th.
A six-piece collective based in Leeds, UK, HYOM focus on the parameters of post-metal, doom and heavy music. Formed in 2015, the band have spent the past year touring and playing shows with the likes of Deafheaven, Ohhms, Moloken, Employed To Serve, Conjurer, Fen, Opium Lord, Canvas and Wren.
Black Fire is the perfect introduction to the Hundred Year Old Man world, encompassing everything this ensemble is about within its full ten minutes. Heavy, bleak, atmospheric riffs rise through the mist… patience is required and rewarded. This is a band intent on doing things differently. Abrasive and aggressive in equal measures, it’s apocalyptic noise with a thick celestial light poured on it.
You can now pre-order the CD version of the single and we have also made a bundle deal available including a t-shirt.
