DOWNLOAD: Seraphim - "Unbelieve" (MP3)

Seraphim at A389 Anniversary (more by Chris Bavaria)

It's never a bad look when your record is packaged for sale with hardcore heavyweights Integrity, and if you're a young band, it's a definite show of faith. That young band? Tupelo, Mississippi's Seraphim, who rise to the occasion on their debut 7" on A389. Channeling post-metal and post-hardcore through a blackened sieve, the band bludgeons with introspection on the EP's opener "Unbelieve", available above. Seraphim push the pedal to the floor for the remaining two tracks, but without ever losing the punishment/dread. Three killer tracks, and I can't wait for the new LP planned for release later this year. Fans of Neurosis, Mastodon, Mouth of The Architect, Rosetta and Amenra, take heed. Ruling.

Seraphim will hit the road on 2/13 for a string of dates that will take them out west through middle March, so get out and catch 'em (no NYC dates yet). All dates and live video from their recent show for A389 Anniversary, below...
