We are delighted to premiere Lucis Absentia‘s new track “Tempest.” The song is taken from the band’s forthcoming EP re-release, To The Depths, which will be out through Static Tension Recordings on June 10th.
The band were previously known as Gomorrah and originally released To the Depths independently in 2014 to rave critical acclaim. The album is a blistering tour-de-force of old-school thrash with a hint of modern metal.
The band commented on the name change: “Lucis Absentia is a name we came up with sort of out of the blue. It means “Absence of Light” in Latin which we felt coupled well with the music. It’s a dark name with a bit of mystique that hopefully draws some people in.”
Static Tension Recordings owner Kyle Stevens commented about the signing: “I’m beyond excited to be adding Lucis Absentia to the Static Tension Recordings family. These Ohio death merchants are set to decimate everything in their path. Nay sayers beware….”
Lucis Absentia is available for digital pre-order, as well as on CD and cassette right now via Static Tension’s Bandcamp page.
