Ether Coven address exploitative systems in new single and video ‘Of Might & Failure’
New album out August 5th on Good Fight Music.
Bursting right out the gate with brutal vocals and earth-quaking riffs, Ether Coven exemplify the best of their post-hardcore meets sludge metal sound on new single ‘Of Might & Failure’. Featuring guest vocals from Shane Post of Bird Of Ill Omen, the track addresses the harsh realities of the prison industrial complex in America and how it takes advantage of those affected by the system. The accompanying Matthew Zagorski directed video dives deeper in, exemplifying how it was designed to prey on those in poverty for non-violent offenses. The song comes from the band’s upcoming album ‘The Relationship Between The Hammer And The Nail’ set for release August 5th on Good Fight Music. Produced by Andy Nelson at Bricktop Studios, the band set out to get the album sounding as close to their live performance as possible. Using actual pedals instead of plug-ins and the majority of vocal cuts being first takes, the recording process was able to be completed in just one week. The seven songs on the record are impassioned, intense, and filled with an overwhelming vulnerability centered around despair, loved ones, and the state of the world.
Ether Coven is Peter Kowalsky (vocals/guitars), Devin Estep (guitar/vocals) Justin Gianoutsos (drums), and Shane Nerenberg (bass).
