CORMORANT Post New Song On Myspace, Announce Special One-Off PAGANFEST Date

San Francisco Bay Area progressive extreme metallers CORMORANT, who were recently featured in Hails & Horns Magazine, have unveiled a new song off their upcoming full-length. The album, Metazoa, was recorded with and produced by Billy Anderson (NEUROSIS, MELVINS, SLEEP, PRIMORDIAL).  The new song, entitled “Blood on the Cornfields,” is now streaming on the band’s Myspace

CORMORANT are also excited to announce that they will be playing the San Francisco date of the upcoming Paganfest USA tour, supporting Korpiklaani, Primordial, Moonsorrow, Blackguard, and Swashbuckle. Whore for Satan will be presenting the show on May 16, 2009 at the DNA Lounge (375 Eleventh Street, San Francisco, CA 94103).

Mixed by Anderson and mastered by Justin Weis (HAMMERS OF MISFORTUNE, LUDICRA, SLOUGH FEG), Metazoa features ten tracks of forward-thinking, multihued black metal that combines the folk-tinged atmospheres of Agalloch with straight-up heavy metal thunder, the expansiveness of post-rock, and the progressive blackness of latter-day Enslaved. Increasingly often mentioned in the same breath as friends and like-minded souls Hammers of Misfortune, Ludicra, Giant Squid, and Asunder, CORMORANT have established themselves as one of the brightest rising stars of the once again burgeoning San Francisco metal scene, and with the release of their debut full-length, Metazoa, promise to continue their graceful rise to the top.
