New York-based Black Metal band United States Luminous Vault are getting ready to launch their debut full-length album, titled "Animate The Emptiness", which will be released tomorrow 20th of May via Canadian label Profound Lore Records. To celebrate the release, the entire album is now being streamed online, check it out:


The label had this to say regarding the band's style:

From their inception in 2015, LUMNOUS VAULT have combined the “machine rhythm” approach of pioneering bands Godflesh and Blut Aus Nord with black metal and synthesizers. On Animate the Emptiness, this vibrant fusion is expressed with an intensity surpassing that of the band’s past efforts.

Tracks such as "Incarnate Flame Arise" are pervaded by the slow, speaker-rattling thud of an electronic kick drum, punctuated by Smith’s distorted bassline and synthetic hi-hat patterns, while Diaz de Leon’s guitar intones haunting tremolo-picked melodies and feedback-laden squalls. On closing track "Ancient North", melancholic doom metal harmonies sustain over syncopated bass and drum rhythms, giving way to a euphoric surge of major key tremolo riffs.

Diaz de Leon and Smith’s vocal lines alternately evoke apocalyptic sermons and a call from otherwordly depths, with surrealistic lyrics that draw inspiration from psychospiritual trials and transformations, full of alchemical imagery.

"Animate the Emptiness" was recorded in New York City between 2019 and early 2020, and features the following complete tracklist:

  1. Invoke Radiant Gleam
  2. Incarnate Flame Arise
  3. Divine Transduction
  4. Regeneration
  5. Earth Daemon
  6. Embryonic
  7. Ancient North

The artwork for "Animate the Emptiness" was designed by American artist Fivetimesno:
