New Book of Black Earth album out Oct. 14th!

Easily one of the most heavy and brutal metal bands in Seattle right now, The Book of Black Earth is all set to release their second album next week. Now on Prosthetic Records (home of a bunch of screamo and metal bands from All That Remains to Testament), the new album, entitled "Horoskopus" is due out October 4th. The label is doing a limited edition of 500 of the vinyl as a double gatefold album, my advice is if you want to snag one, pre-order it now here. I just pre-ordered the LP and tshirt, vinyl runs being so small these days, releases like this sell out instantly and become collectors items you'll have to pay twice as much for on Ebay within a few months.

Book of Black Earth was formed in 2003 by former members of Teen Cthulu, Skarp, Wormwood and somewhat surprisingly Rebekah from Kill Sadie and The Fitness. They've had a few member changes over the years before cementing into the current line up (press photo by the esteemed Miss Kelly O):
