Dawn of Ouroboros Share New Single


Dawn of Ouroboros just shared a new track, “Testudines,” from their forthcoming album, Velvet Incandescence, out April 21 via Prosthetic Records.

This will be the sophomore record fro the Oakland-based blackened prog band, and if this track is any indication, it won’t disappoint fans who have enjoyed their previous offerings.

Of the release, Tony Thomas (guitar, synths) says:

“‘Testudines’ is the second track on the album and is another example of how we like to vary our sound as a band. Instrumentally this one holds a lot of influence from jazz fusion with its harmonic structure, use of chords common in jazz, and frequent use of a swing feel.

“The whole band shows off our ability to play at high tempos while keeping our song structure melodic and coherent. Vocally, Chelsea uses several styles to show off her skills. With her use of her signature black metal shrieks, brutal lows, as well as her strong sense of melody with her clean singing. This is one we definitely can’t want to perform live!”

The band are also going on tour this month with Ashbringer in support of the new record:
