Four years after releasing their monolithic Cloak of Ash on Relapse Records, Brisbane’s HOPE DRONE return with a new meditation on personal and existential despair in the form of Void Lustre. Crafted with patience and restraint the album sees the band travel further down the textured and dynamic pathways forged by their previous work as they dance from austere atmospheres to crashing walls of sound through frenetic blasts and thunderous dirges. Blending the likes of black metal, sludge and post-rock with influences even further afield the band creates a rich sound that is as beautiful as it is devastating.
HOPE DRONE‘s new atmospheric black metal anthem Forged By The Tide just exclusively premiered at CVLT Nation and Deaf Forever, is now streaming at THIS LOCATION!
Void Lustre will be coming out in 2xLP, CD and Digital formats, August 30th on Moment of Collapse Records and is now available for pre-order RIGHT HERE!
HOPE DRONE is:
Chris Rowden (Guitar, Vocals)
Karl Hartwig (Guitar, Noise)
