«Kingscorpse», the title of the first track from Sightless Pit‘s debut album is certainly one that will resonate and evoke hope in many a resident of monarchic countries. The project is a union of three prolific voices in the US extreme music scene, namely Lee Buford of The Body, Kristin Hayter of Lingua Ignota, and Dylan Walker of Full of Hell. Their debut album, «Grave of a Dog» is said to have been “crafted without any clear rules or guidelines beyond their desire to work with one another. The central pillar to what coheres the three into a unified voice throughout the album is a shared bleak vision of existence and a willingness to follow each other into bold new territory.” Recordings took place at Machines With Magnets, alongside Seth Manchester, between 2017 and 2019. The expansive time-frame allowed individual sessions to take place, which then subsequently inspired the others in their own work. Per Walker, the album’s themes are “about the anonymity of struggle, the darkness of a lifetime wasted warring against nature, god and everything else, only to be defeated … nothing … the end.”

«Grave of a Dog» is set for release on February 21 through Thrill Jockey on cd, digital, and vinyl formats. Pre-orders are available at this location. The cover art seen above was made by Mark McCoy.
