Ludicra - "In Stable"

As often as I listen to it, I keep finding new layers and sounds in Ludicra’s The Tenant, the crusty San Francisco black metal band’s great followup to 2007’s Fex Urbis Lex Orbus. As I said when I interviewed drummer Aesop Dekker, also of Agalloch, the new one is their most complete, captivating album to date. True. It’s also one of the most complete, captivating albums to be released by any band so far this year. Last time I mentioned they were playing the Scion Fest on 3/13 and were set to go out on tour with Mayhem, along with Krallice and Tombs, in April. Mayhem ended up canceling said tour for whatever reason. Instead of bitching about it, Ludicra’s been busy booking a De-Cancellation tour in its place. Take a look at those dates (so far) while you listen to one of The Tenant’s many standouts “In Stable,” a song Dekker told me has “an obvious Coroner meets NWOBHM vibe to it in parts.” Yeah, it also just kicks ass.

The Tenant is out early to mid March via Profound Lore. You can order it now. Revisit “A Larger Silence.”

And here’s the De-Cancellation tour (to date). Krallice will join them or some of the shows. More on that and less TBA’s soon.

  1. Profound Lore finally put this up for order yesterday. I’m hoping to get so I can give it a few spins before I see them at Scion next weekend. Can’t wait to hear it.

  2. Brandon are you going to be at the Shrinebuilder/Salome/WITTR gig at NYU next week? And if so, do you have any info on tickets for non students?

    • Hey. I spoke with one of the bands and they said tickets are $5 at the door, regardless of NYU affiliation? Not sure if that’s correct or not, but that’s what I was told.
