Pitchfork is currently streaming the opening track from Locrian’s upcoming album Return to Annihilation, which is due out on June 25th through Relapse. I have become so used to Locrian’s dark droning mentality that this new track, “Eternal Return”, really surprised me. This four minute piece opens up with swelling drones that build into a bright collage of melodic, almost post-hardcore ish riffing and rhythms and keyboard melodies. The distorted vocals which are swallowed by one another add a nice dimension of weirdness to this overall upbeat sounding song. I was definitely not expecting this from Locrian. Head over to Pitchfork and check out the track right meow!
