Featuring live members from Obsidian Tongue, Panopticon, & Falls of Rauros.
Blackened death metal outfit SHABTI, consisting of current/former members of PANOPTICON's live lineup, OBSIDIAN TONGUE, and FALLS OF RAUROS, have finalized their sophomore record Trembling And Shorn and are set to co-release it with Last Mercy Emissions on March 22nd. The effort will be available in a limited run of 300 CDs as well as digitally. Pre-orders, singles, and more will be shared in the coming weeks.
Drawing from the likes of Dissection, Death, Morbid Angel, and Carcass, SHABTI aim to deliver a multi faceted blackened death metal assault that shoots from every direction. The band is made up of drummer Ray Capizzo (Obsidian Tongue, Panopticon live), bassist Brendan James Hayter (Obsidian Tongue), and founding member and guitarist/vocalist Rob Cook.
Trembling and Shorn was tracked by Todd Hutchinson at Acadia Recording Company, mixed by Dave Kaminsky at Studio Wormwood, and mastered by Colin Marston at Menegroth, The Thousand Caves. Cover art duties were given to Unexpected Specter, who did an exceptional job capturing the band's haunting aesthetic.
Trembling And Shorn Track Listing:
1. Shrouded And Veiled
2. Seven Billion Souls
4. The Oracle And The Architect
5. My Doppelganger
6. Below Deck
