The Brvtalist is proud to present a full album preview of the upcoming LP by Rhode Island's Craow. Out next week on one of our favorite labels, Nostilevo, Craow's self titled effort is a powerful journey through the depths of post-industrial, wave and rhythmic atmospherics. The haunting vocals are the perfect compliment to the anthemic mood created by these 5 incredible tracks. With future releases and re-issues planned on Deathshadow and Ascetic House, this is Craow's second effort for Nostilevo. Please enjoy Craow - S/T streaming below:
We spoke with Sean Halpin, the artist behind Craow, and he had this to say about the release:
The record is made up of songs written in 2013. My life at the time was very polar. It seemed to be one heavy thing after another, good and bad but it was all happening at once so I was into it in a completely perverted way. The gear set up I was using at the time worked very well together for that era of CRAOW. I was living in Tampa when it was written and I recorded it in my studio in Providence ,except "Game of Fools" which I recorded at Cyborg City where I was living in Tampa. I am a bit apprehensive to get into what each song is about as I'd really be into people listening to the record in a subjective way. I tried to keep the mentality of working on the record as if we're the last recording I did that I would be alright with it.
The LP will see a release of edition 300 on black vinyl and a special edition of 50 on clear. The Brvtalist is also thrilled to be DJing the official LP release show, happening on April 9th at Non Plus Ultra in Los Angeles. Also on the bill that night are Marching Dynamics and Fairlight Empress (members of Hive Mind + Oil Thief). Please join us for a very special evening. For more information please visit Nostilevo.
