Haunted Shores, the instrumental death metal-tinged outfit featuring Periphery’s Mark Holcomb and Misha Mansoor, will release its debut full-length, “Void,” on March 11, 2022, via 3DOT Recordings. The album is the follow-up to the 2015 “Viscera” EP.
The duo has released the song “Hellfire” as the first preview of the eight-song collection.
“We’re proud to announce the upcoming release of our new record, Void,” Holcomb said of the outfit he founded prior to his role in Periphery. “Misha and I have wanted to do another Haunted Shores album for quite some time, and we finally made the time necessary to focus on these songs. I have always loved writing Haunted Shores songs, but this one in particular feels special–a little crazier, a little more unhinged, and in my opinion, a step above what we’ve done in the past. ‘Hellfire’ was the first song we demo’d for the record, and in many ways it sets the table for the record in its intent and spirit. I can’t wait for people to hear the rest of it.”
“Void” was co-produced by Holcomb and Mansoor, with Mansoor also tackling mixing duties. Norwegian jazz-meets-metal musician Jørgen Munkeby (Shining) guests on “Nocturnal Hours.” The album cover features a Paoli Girardi painting.
