MGLA - Excercises in Futility

Polish black metal greats Mgla have a new album out now. Its called Exercises In Futility and it's a ripper, brutal and surprisingly catchy in equal measure. Stream it below.

Mgla will be going on a US tour in November that includes two days of NYC's Martyrdoom Festival, which goes from November 6 - 10 at Saint Vitus. All Mgla dates are listed below

The first Martyrdoom show they play is 11/6 with Necrophobic, Kommandant, Paroxsihzem and Vorde. Then they play the 11/8 show with their tourmates Mortuary Drape and Sangus, plus Demonomancy, Black Anvil and Phobocosm. The 11/6 show is sold out, but tickets for all other Martyrdoom shows (including the pre-party at Acheron) are still available.
