bson_press_2014

German sludge/doom outfit Black Shape of Nexus announced that they have finished recording and mixing their fourth full-length record and follow-up to 2012’s Negative Black. The  new record, titled Carrier, is currently being mastered by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering in Berlin and will be finalized for release through Exile On Mainstream in the Spring of 2016 on CD and 2xLP. The album will feature six tracks, including a Hellhammer cover, and will be over 50 minutes in length. Vocalist Malte Seidel issued the following statement:

Carrier is the result of a band being in a constant state of deterioration. Doing a record is a very unpleasant and harmful process for us. Creating Negative Black already was a nightmare, but with Carrier the understanding of the term nightmare needs to be expanded. This is not being said to play the ‘tension and dissent create great art’ card. This album is not art. This album is not musicianship. This album is simply the album that we were able to do under the current circumstances while sometimes asking ourselves if a split-up would not be the better option. The final mix of Carrier is done at the moment.”

More information on the record will be revealed in the months to come. In the meantime, stream Negative Black after the break.
