Underling – Bloodworship

Northern Californian Atmospheric Black Metal outfit, UNDERLING, present their latest offering as the newest addition to Neuropa Records: the re-release of the 2015 full-length “Bloodworship” and their critically-acclaimed 2013 EP, “Breathe Deeply”.

Bloodworship is Underling’s debut 2015 full-length, and proved to be a demonstration of the stylistic versatility the band has to offer. Mixing various styles of post-hardcore, sludge, punk, and post-metal around their unique Atmospheric Black Metal sound, Underling wanted to put out an album that was more aggressive and much darker than Breathe Deeply. This was to not only show their fans and critics that they are not the type of band that wants to write the same album twice, nor the type that is interested in writing music that respects the boundaries of their genere; it was also to convey a very personal story about struggles with addiction, depression, suicide, and loss. This album is incredibly visceral in nature, and is deeply interlaced with complex, yet powerfully tangible emotion. Any fan of Underling will appreciate this re-release of Bloodworship in 6-panel digisleeve format.
