USURPRESS unleashed "ORDAINED", 10/2014 via DOOMENTIA RECORDS.
FROM AGONIA RECORDS:
Usurpress is set to release a brand new album titled "The Regal Tribe" on September 23rd via Agonia Records!
The album's haunting cover artwork was created by renowned Dutch artist Marald van Haasteren (Bolt Thrower, High On Fire, Baroness, KYLESA) who was given a carte blanche with rgeards to the visual interpretation of the album’s lyrical concept.
"The Regal Tribe" was recorded under the supervision of rising star producer Lawrence Mackrory ( F.K.Ü., Darkane). It's the follow up to "Ordained" (2014) which saw the Swedes leave their deathcrust path for more uncharted territories. During the composing of the new album, the band was plagued by mental disorders/depressions and life threatening illnesses in the member’s immediate families, most notably vocalist/lyricist Stefan Pettersson’s battle with his bone marrow cancer. Therefore "The Regal Tribe" is a heavier and darker, yet more varied, complex and thoughtful effort than their previous albums. This concept album is a tragic story about life versus death, about vanity and the relentless passing of time and is by far Usupress’ most ambitious output to date.
