Mastermind Sgah’gahsowáh prepares the next chapter.
On July 7th, Blackbraid will usher in another grand chapter into black metal's underground in the form of Blackbraid II, which again comes elegantly illustrated by the symbolic arts of Adrian Baxter. The sophomore full-length continues the momentum from a debut that made several year end lists (including our own), and rightfully so. Blackbraid II is prefaced by today's arrival of new single, Moss Covered Bones on the Altar of the Moon — a truly majestic outing that is at time cinematic and at times crushingly explosive, rounding out one comprehensive beast to behold.
Blackbraid will be embarking on this year's Decibel Magazine Tour alongside Dark Funeral, 200 Stab Wounds, and Cattle Decapitation, which you can find dates for below.
