Laudanum "The Coronation" 2xLP

LAUDANUM returns after belting out a thunderous split with STORMCROW and the criminally underrated debut CD, THE APOTHEKER. THE CORONATION is a 40+ minute hellride into a bleak and vast forest of doom and despair, a serenade of blistering guitars, steamrolling distorted bass, vocals tainted with battery acid and a landscape of crushing electronic sine waves. "Corrosive doom nihilism and industrial noise wasteland, ambient texture and punishing sludge from Oakland" - 20 Buck Spin. Founding members Becky and Judd Hawk are now joined with Life is Abuse veteranos Greg Wilkenson (BRAINOIL) and Nathan Misterek (GRAVES AT SEA) to unleash this blackened opus ofOSCILLOSCOPE DOOM. This release is a first pressing of 500 pcs (300 on black vinyl / 200 on clear only available on tour and thru mailorder) packaged in a widespine jacket, along w. lyric sheet and a foldout 3 color silkscreened poster.
