You can check out the video for yourself below. Continue reading

Man, I can’t wait for the Relapse debut from Hope Drone. I absolutely love this band and I am so happy that they got a shot at Relapse to gain a name for themselves. Not that the band was nobody before. They just have a much greater reach with a good label behind them. Not to mention the band have crafted such wonderfully bleak music over the years and it seems as if Cloak Of Ash will be no different. Check out the bands latest offering “Riverbeds Hewn In Marrow” below. It’s superb. Muah. Continue reading
