ALEYNMORD set release date for AOP RECORDS debut - reveal first video, cover art, tracklisting

[C. Nihil - vocals/bass]

Today, AOP Records sets August 28th as the international release date for Aleynmord’s striking debut album, The Blinding Light, on CD and vinyl LP formats. In lieu of this news, a brand-new video for the track "Wounded Monolith" has been revealed HERE at AOP Records' official YouTube channel. See & hear Aleynmord’s "Wounded Monolith" video in its entirety HERE.

One of the most powerful things about the landscape of Oregon is the Columbia Gorge: enveloped on both sides by two major mountains, barred from each other by a mighty river and a vast expanse of virtually overgrown wilderness. Finding solace from this landscape away from the metropolitan world, Aleynmord set out to explain the many different feelings one can experience in a self-imposed isolation.

[JS - guitar]
With a range of vocals from a shrill cry, yells, cleans, and even Americana-esque whistles enshrouded by a fog of thick guitars and a walking bass, The Blinding Light is a concise collection of tracks which convey this powerful emotion that can only be attempted to describe. Across its four-song/36-minute runtime, peaks of concentrated musicianship are then cut apart by various valleys of acoustic works resembling Death in June nostalgia and forest worship, culminating in a crescendo of domineering solos. The duo of Aleynmord know no boundaries in their enigmatic expression.
A contrast of pain and beauty, Aleynmord makes use of every way to describe the emotional poetry of isolation in the wilderness. What results is a plaintive, poignant journey ably bearing the title The Blinding Light, and beautifully adorned with cover art courtesy of the esteemed Jef Whitehead (Leviathan, Lurker of Chalice).
In the meantime, see & hear the brand-new video for "Wounded Monolith" HERE at AOP Records' official YouTube channel. Aforementioned cover art and tracklisting are as follows:
