News : Hadal Maw release their second single “White Elephant”.

By on July 16, 2018

Melbourne’s Hadal Maw have released their second single “White Elephant”, taken from the band’s forthcoming new EP ‘Charlatan’. The new single is the latest offering from the EP, following the release of the first single “Idolatry” a couple of weeks back. Click here to check out the first single “Idolatry”. Those wanting to check out the latest single, “White Elephant” can stream it now via the band’s official Youtube channel.

Guitarist, Ben Boyle comments:

“This release represents a breath of new life in the band – we approached Charlatan with a no holds barred passion and a new found aggression. In doing so, we captured an intensity that was almost cathartic in how it differed from the previous albums – in the process and in the aspired outcome. It’s raw, chaotic, and showcases the strongest points of the band and our individual styles. Each piece of the puzzle came together this time to form a unified and consistent vision, which demonstrates the strength of the current line-up. It is the purest representation of the band to date, and we couldn’t be more proud of what we accomplished.”

The new EP is available for pre-order via the band’s official website. Click here to secure your copy today. The EP is due for release on Friday, 3rd August with a national tour to coincide with the release alongside Psycroptic and Archpire from August 16th.

Moving forward with their overwhelming, wall of sound approach, the band has imported elements from black metal, sludge and noise to engineer a considerably darker and denser approach than previously known. Teaming up this time with Troy McCosker (Ne Obliviscaris, Vipassi) the production is a swift departure from the tight, clean cut veneer of “Olm”, opting for a raw, livelier, unforgiving and sludgy morass, designed to pull the unwilling participant into an abyss.

Hadal Maw have shared the stage with the likes of Decapitated, Suffocation, Ne Obliviscaris, Psycroptic, Beyond Creation, King Parrot, Aborted and many more.

Hadal Maw’s EP Charlatan will be released on Friday, August 3 at all good online outlets and available now for physical pre-order at
