UK-based Metallic Sludge/Hardcore band ALLFATHER are pleased to announce that they have signed with Static Tension Recordings to release the CD and cassette version of their upcoming album Bless the Earth with Fire in North America.

The album contains six tracks of blistering Metal that sounds like a cross between Black Sabbath and Corrosion of Conformity, mixed in a blender with High on Fire and Hardcore Punk. Bless the Earth with Fire is set to be released on April 29th. The album will include the previously released bonus track “Blood Red Sunset” which you can stream here:

Frontman Tom Ballard said about the album: “When we started the band our goal was to write a few songs and play a couple of shows that weren’t shit. The fact two and a bit years later we get the opportunity to release a record with Static Tension is straight up fucking brilliant.”

The light is dying and if you’re going to rage against it, you’ll need all the furious volume you can muster. Dealing out titanic riffs and lacerating vocals since 2014, Allfather combine Sludge Metal nihilism with Hardcore Punk aggression and full on Metal stomp to forge a harsh yet defiant soundtrack to the darkest of times.

From humble beginnings, Allfather have honed their line-up into a hard-hitting five piece, channeling heavyweight song craft through a classic dual guitar assault. Allfather’s members come from a variety of musical backgrounds and draw on a range of influences, but the band’s sound coalesces around riff-driven Metal, with the likes of  High On Fire, Nails, Black Breath, Iron Monkey and Electric Wizard forming musical touchstones. Lyrically the band’s concerns spring from a burning frustration at the times we live in, with occasional forays into the tortured minds of Dostoevskian madmen and vengeful gods.

When they’re not locked in the Allfather practice bunker summoning up riffs, the band’s members work day jobs and raise families, while still finding the time to share stages with the likes of Cold World, Venom Prison, Title Fight and The Moth. The mix of Punk and Metal encapsulated by those bands informed the sound of forthcoming release Bless the Earth With Fire. This new EP, the follow-up to Allfather’s debut release No Gods. No Masters, signifies a significant step up in intensity and ambition, marking the next step in the band’s journey into the gathering darkness.
