FAUSTIAN: Louisiana Death Metallers Drop Visceral Second Single "Communion With Shadows"

FAUSTIAN Release Visceral Second Single "Communion With Shadows"

Self-titled debut EP due out Oct. 7

Louisiana death metal trio FAUSTIAN have released their devastating second single, "Communion With Shadows," now available on all major DSPs and YouTube. The band's self-titled debut EP is dropping Oct. 7 via Black Lion Records.


"In the band's opinion, 'Communion With Shadows' is definitely the meanest and most visceral track on the EP," says vocalist and guitarist Dallas Smith. Recorded by James Whitten (Thou, High on Fire, Eyehategod), Faustian delivers a unique style of blackened death that seamlessly shifts from razor-sharp maelstrom to dirge-like grime as the three-piece meld violent urgency and claustrophobic atmosphere into a frenzied sonic catharsis. The band states, “FAUSTIAN are honored to have found a home in Black Lion Records. We’re incredibly proud of what we’ve accomplished with our debut and thank them for the opportunity and platform to share it with the world. We look forward to working with Black Lion and what the future holds for both entities.” "We are happy to announce the release of the newly-signed FAUSTIAN," says Black Lion Records founder Oliver Dahlback. "Having found this young band through a mutual friend, I was truly blown away by the quality and sound that FAUSTIAN delivers."


Faustian will be released Oct. 7 on CD and digital via Black Lion Records. More info will be released in the weeks to come regarding vinyl.
