Published Aug 29, 2014If you were wondering whether or not metal supergroup Old Man Gloom would deliver a follow-up to their doom-drenched 2012 set NO, it turns out the answer is yes, yes they will. Though a solid due date has yet to be delivered, the band's sixth album is called The Ape of God, and it arrives this November through Profound Lore.
While details have yet to be shed on the release date, recording process or tracklisting, the album was confirmed by the band on Facebook today (August 29). The group also revealed the unfinished album artwork from the band's Aaron Turner, also of defunct avant metal crew Isis and founder of the band's former label home, Hydra Head.
A series of sneak peeks of the art was delivered through Turner's Instagram account, revealing various twisted visages, and hashtags like "#shouldermeat," "#gloomaday" and "#sadvicious." You'll find the disturbing string of visuals down below.
In addition to Turner, Old Man Gloom features Converge/Doomriders member Nate Newton, Cave In/Zozobra veteran Caleb Scofield, drummer Santos Montano and electronics mastermind Luke Scarola.
