Dragged Into Sunlight

I was a bit shocked when the news that the UK's Dragged Into Sunlight had signed to Prosthetic Records. Not that the label toils in bands that I despise - just the opposite, but that anyone outside of the true underground realm would sign such a foul and loathsome band.

Trust me, I mean that as a complement. Dragged Into Sunlight is ambient doom blackened through and through. You can hear their demonic touch on their Prosthetic reissued LP Hatred For Mankind due on January 18th, 2011 for the first time on US soil. Produced by the great Billy Anderson and featuring atwork from Justin Bartlett, Hatred For Mankind features seven tracks of pure vitriol like "Boiled Angel", which is available for download above and streaming below.

Dragged Into Sunlight have announced April European dates with Rwake, but are currently plotting a North American invasion. Stay tuned. Announced dates, the song stream and some video is below.
