ASH BORER "The Irrepassable Gate" 2LP
Over the last several years West Coast band Ash Borer have been recognized as one of the most prominent and active bands in the U.S. black metal scene. Following their critically praised second album Cold Of Ages from 2012, The Irrepassable Gate is produced by Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Marissa Nadler, Wolves In The Throne Room), and is their most dynamic and sprawling album to date. With Dunn at the engineering helm, enhancing the wall-of-sound harshness and their signature expansive time-stretching tracks, the band delivers their most grandiose work. The Irrepassable Gate has an all-encompassing atmosphere complete with the raw, abrasive, and primal aura that defines Ash Borer.
Produced, engineered, and mixed by Randall Dunn.
Mastered by Jason Ward at Chicago Mastering.
Artwork and design by Glyn Smyth of Stag & Serpent.
