Epic Northwestern (don't say the c-word!) black metal crew Ash Borer have returned with a new song. The four-piece crew from Northern California's new track, "Oblivion's Spring", is culled from the band's forthcoming 12" Bloodlands due in April via Gilead Media. Opening with an eerie reverb-soaked clean guitar passage, "Oblivion's Spring" dabbles in doomy riffing in addition to the blasting that marked their 2012 release for Profound Lore, Cold of Ages. Recommended, and streaming in all of its epic glory below.

Ash Borer will embark on a tour with Fell Voices in the coming months, hitting the EU for the bulk of April. All tour dates and that stream is below.
