This video teaser opens with a quote from A.A Milne whilst the lurching bassline of "Caged Bird" sets the scene. J.J. Shirey's dark artwork features prominently making sure our eye is cast over every part, until we are confronted with raw live footage of the band performing album highlight, "An Apology To A Friend In Need", replete with devastatingly heavy, magma-thick riffs and subterranean growls. Overall a great indicator of what we can expect from the upcoming full-length and something to keep us going as we edge closer to release date.
Recorded, mixed and produced by Fester at Haywire Studios, mastered by Adam Gonsalves at Telegraph Mastering – both in Portland - and swathed in the visually abrasive cover art of J.J. Shirey, Life Drawing promises to hurl Stoneburner’s habitually chest-caving sludge mantras to entirely new realms of earth-deteriorating heaviness.
