Hells Headbangers announces the signing of America's Thy Feeble Saviour. The first fruit of this union shall be the band's long-awaited debut album, And Darkness Fell, which is slated for international release later this year.
A cult name in the metal underground, Thy Feeble Saviour were one of the first bands to carry forward the torch of perverse primitivism originally lit by Profanatica before their successive comeback. And just like that pioneering American black metal band, Thy Feeble Saviour likewise have two eras.
Thy Feeble Saviour was formed in 2004 by Francisco Pulido after the demise of Sacreligious Torment, another early USBM band carrying Profanatica's torch. The band recorded a demo in 2004 titled And the Vomit Shall Spill Forth..., which was followed two years later by a split 7" with comrades-in-primitivism Jhesu Masturbator. Thy Feeble Saviorwas then inactive until 2015, when Francisco teamed up with drummer and total maniac Matt Heffner (Blaspherian, Morbosidad, Oath of Cruelty). Newly invigorated, the duo recorded a six-track demo titled Blasphemic Disgust. The next year saw the release of a split cassette with American death metal sickos Ruin.
Now, at long last, 2017 will see the release of Thy Feeble Saviour's long-awaited debut album, through longtime fans Hells Headbangers. Fittingly titled And Darkness Fell, the album will contain 14 tracks of utterly blasphemous black/death metal. Both a continuation of the band's original era and their second, equally sick era, And Darkness Fell is totally Thy Feeble Saviour, and totally uncompromising - not for wimps!
Says Pulido, "We are honored to be working with Hells Headbangers for our debut album 13 years after the band's inception. They have been nothing short of professional with us since we first began discussing the release. Eternal gratitude to Paul Ledney [Profanatica] also for helping us get this deal done."
Release date and preorder info to be announced shortly. In the meantime, "Torture Stake" - the first track to be revealed from And Darkness Fell - can be heard at Hells Headbangers' official YouTube channel here:
