Immortal Bird releasing a new EP (stream a track)

by Doug Moore

Immortal Bird are a new Chicagoan death/black metal band, featuring members of the folk metal band Thrawsunblat (who in turn are connected to Woods of Ypres), as well as (live) members of Novembers Doom.

We’re streaming “Spitting Teeth,” the opening cut from their debut EP Akrasia, over at Invisible Oranges. Here’s an excerpt from our writeup:

I suspect that most coverage of this band will play up the Thrawsunblat connection, but the two have little in common. Immortal Bird ditch the pretty pastoralism in favor of an inward-looking cosmpolitan ugliness that sometimes evokes a less-patient version of early Castevet. Opener “Spitting Teeth” delivers their melange at its best. Its ingredients: blurry, dissonant black metal fluttering; lots of nervy arpeggios; occasional stop-start trickery; dirty riffs played cleanly. Kurt Ballou’s HM2-free mix ironically spotlights guitarist Evan Berry’s performance more than Amitay’s, but it’s not such a bad thing — his versatile playing carries the band’s charge.

You can read the rest of the deets over at IO. Akrasia comes out on December 3 via Closed Casket Recordings.

The band’s only upcoming date at the moment is an EP release show in their hometown. Stream “Spitting Teeth” below.
