Premiere: No Spill Blood – Anvil Crawler
Very few bands do obliteration quite like No Spill Blood. Over the last ten years, the Dublin trio of Ror Conaty, Matt Hedigan and Ruadhan O’Meara have delivered cyclical heft, cut from its very own cosmic cloth.
Eight years after releasing one of the most emphatic Irish albums of 2015, Heavy Electricity, the Kraut-metal three-piece are back with news of its eagerly-anticipated follow-up, Eye of Night.
Set for release via Finnish imprint Svart on 24th February 2023, the ten-track album is, we are told, a “series of inward folding tales of a protagonist’s journey within the self. An exploration of the cosmos within, an engagement with the inner recesses, bearing witness to lies beneath the real.” Fully righteous.
Accompanying the announcement is ‘Anvil Crawler,’ a suitably atomizing blast of extraterrestrial doom that sees the Conaty, Hedigan and O’Meara at their most black metal-adjacent. It bodes very well – and perfectly pulverizing – for album number two.
Featuring artwork by Michael Whelan, you can pre-order the Phil Manley-mixed Eye of Night here. Check out ‘Anvil Crawler’ and the band’s upcoming tour dates below.
