Sannhet at the IO CMJ Showcase 2013 (more by Caroline Harrison)

Brooklyn's instrumental post-black metal specialists Sannhet released a new EP yesterday titled Lions Eye, the band's first new material since Known Flood came out back in February. In typical Sannhet fashion, Lion's Eye delivers big gorgeous shimmering guitars and a wealth of blast beats that meander from epic peak to epic peak. The EP is divided into two tracks---"Lions Eye" and "You Thy_"---but the two songs work best played together, where a brief spoken word film sound bite that segues from one etherial blast to the next. Stream the whole thing in this post.

Sannhet recently brought their potentially seizure-inducing live light show to night two of the Invisible Oranges CMJ Showcase, where they played in direct support to headliners Pelican on a stacked lineup that included Kings Destroy, Wreck & Reference, Phantom Glue and Pyrrhon.

Note: this post originally said that Sannhet was playing an upcoming show with TOAD, but that ended up not being true.
