Lorelei are a band that needs much more attention than they should be getting. Their symphonic/progressive deathcore sound is fantastic, and theoretically everything I’d ever want out of the genre of deathcore. We’ve talked about the band before when they dropped their last single ‘The Dunwich Horror,’ but now they’ve released another new track titled ‘Masque‘ that tickles all kinds of Heavy Blog fancy. Engineered by Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me, Last Chance To Reason, etc) and mixed by Nick Scott (The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza), the song not only slays musically, but is sonically massive. Stream ‘Masque‘ below:
On top of the new single, the band announced their debut album Lore of Lies, which is due out later this year. The album artwork has also been made available, which can be seen above. Here are the details:
We are excited to announce that our new track “Masque” was just a taste off of our debut FULL-LENGTH release titled “Lore of Lies” set to drop some time late 2013!
The album will feature our two singles from last year “The Dunwich Horror” and “Godfather Death” completely re-tracked and re-mixed/mastered by Nick Scott, who handled all mixing/mastering in “Masque”, and four more full-length tracks with guest appearances from members of Conducting From The Grave, Ovid’s Withering, The Schoenberg Automaton, and Warforged!
The album will be engineered by Jamie King at The Basement Recording NC (who has worked with Between the Buried and Me, Wretched, Scale the Summit, and more) and mixed/mastered by Nick Scott at The Foundation Recording Studio, who worked with The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza, Miss May I, and more sweet bands!

We’re pumped, and hopefully you guys are, too!
