Sign them already: Embers

Embers comes from the same gritty stream that flows through other Bay Area greats: Neurosis, Ludicra, Hammers of Misfortune, Saros, Grayceon, Amber Asylum, Worm Ouroboros, and more. Like these bands, Embers are hard to classify. Their foundation is crusty black metal, but slower passages suggest doom and even old 4AD. Unobtrusive keyboards, plaintive viola, and male and female screams enrich the sound. It sucks you in; I often put Embers on repeat and lose myself in its twists and turns.

Last year the band self-released a split 12″ with Oregon’s Book of Belial. Embers has made its two tracks (totaling about 19 minutes in length) from that split available for free download. See its Bandcamp page here, which offers streaming whole songs, complete lyrics, and a full range of download formats including MP3, FLAC, AAC, and more. See also the phenomenal artwork above, drawn by exceptionally talented bassist/vocalist Kelly Nelson. To purchase the 12″, visit the band’s official site here.

Embers is the real deal. Here’s your chance to get in on its ground floor. Again, stream, read, and download for free here. It will be worth your while.
