We are proud to release 100 Years of Solitude's hugely impressive debut EP 'A Blackened Earth', a seething slab of blackened post-metal, forged by veterans of the Sydney music scene.

'A Blackened Earth' oscillates between haunting, ethereal passages and bursts of pure extremity. This is earthen, forward-thinking metal for fans of Deafheaven, Isis, Wolves in the Throne Room and Encircling Sea.
