New York sludge and doom act Unearthly Trance have released “Famine”, the fourth song from their upcoming album Stalking the Ghost.

This is the second release from the outfit in almost seven years, following previous single “Dream State Arsenal”

Neither song sounds radically different than tracks from their last album, V. This comes as no surprise; the outfit disbanded-then-metamorphosed into Serpentine Path for a two album run. Vocalist and guitarist Ryan Lipynsky’s kept busy as his black metal outfit The Howling Wind in the years since as well, so there’s been no real dormant period, just somewhat similar material with different labels.

To be completely honest, none of Lipynsky’s projects ever resonated very strongly with me, but I do very strongly remember the one winter I spent in New York City, when I first heard their then-new album Electrocution, and thinking they did have an uncanny skill for capturing the sense one gets when stepping up out of a relatively warm subway tunnel into one of Manhattan’s frigid wind-tunnel streets. It’s a sensation many bands reach for, but Unearlthy Trance do grab it, and reliably. It’s there on “Famine” as well. The song’s climax, a bluesy solo, injects a little warmth into the tail end of it. Unearthly Trance are rising from the Underground, but now they sound like they’re descending into something molten.
