FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Wolvserpent "Blood Seed" LP
Boise, Idaho duo Wolvserpent (formerly known as Pussygutt) will release their 4th album, Blood Seed, officially on Tuesday, October 5th. In advance of that 20 Buck Spin is posting a full album stream now.
Blood Seed is the duo’s finest work, consisting of the two extended tracks “Wolv” and “Serpent”. Blood Seed will appeal to fans of early Melvins, Gnaw Their Tongues, Amber Asylum, Jucifer and all things, dark, bleak and heavy.
The band will be on the road by the time the LP is released. A full list of tour dates confirmed are provided below.
Wolvserpent is the duo formerly known lightheartedly as Pussygutt, from Boise, Idaho. The duo is comprised of long-time members Blake Green and Brittany McConnell. Blood Seed is their 4th LP, though first using their new moniker. Utilizing elements of the first three LPs, the new Wolvserpent LP takes the disparate strains of experimentation the band is known and respected for, and melds them seamlessly into their most cohesive and cinematic vision thus far.
Blood Seed has been in the works for more than a year, being constantly honed and refined both live and in the studio. The result is two side long tracks, “Wolv” and “Serpent” that revel in a shimmering, dark gothic vision of rural Northwestern solitude and bleakness. The A-side sways to and fro in a perpetual state of trance while violin flourishes in the background hint at the creeping menace of night’s onward march toward total darkness. Soon the crushing tone of Green’s guitar veers forward in the dark, blasting through the forest canopy, and the whole thing becomes ensconced in the weight of massive doomed devastation and McConnell’s militaristic percussive punishment. The B-side summons the howling wolves before stretching out into THEE doom riffage of the year like a warped Kyuss cassette submerged in a watery grave. These are the ghosts of the uncivil dead.
One of the most creative, talented and unheralded acts on the 20 Buck Spin roster, Wolvserpent intend to emerge from their self-imposed isolation and spread the mortuary drape over the entire US throughout October embarking on their first major tour. Blood Seed will, in its physical manifestation, be an LP only release. Don’t sleep on it.
