Downtempo’s Torchbearers
prepare to release the heaviest record of the

BLACK TONGUE will release their new full length ‘The
Unconquerable Dark’ on September 4th via Century Media

Unconquerable Dark’ is a devastatingly bleak record that showcases
the Hull Hate Crew’s trademark Downtempo sound to absolute full effect. From the
opening Doom drenched riffs of “Plague Worship” to the Black
Metal tinged “L’appel du Vide”, to the unfathomably heavy
“Prince Of Ash” and “Vermintide” (featuring
guest vocals from SUICIDE SILENCE’s EDDIE HERMIDA), the hatred spews out of the

lyric video for “L’appel du Vide” can be seen here:

by BLACK TONGUE & Jesse Kirkbride (Traitors, Demolisher),
the album features artwork by Ken Sarafin (Oceano, Catalepsy).

The band
had the following to say on announcing the record:

“Our original mindset
for ‘Falsifier’ and ‘Born Hanged’ was to create the most ridiculously crushing
music around. We created the heaviest music because there just wasn’t anything
around at the time that was as heavy as we wanted to hear. We feel like we did a
pretty good job. Now there’s a plethora of bands that are taking the reigns of
the heavy and we love it, but a new direction is in order. With The
Unconquerable Dark we wanted to keep the slow, low and crushing vibe but add
some maturity to it. More riffs, more memorable choruses and some juicy lead
thrown in. Don’t get us wrong, this is the heaviest thing we’ve ever released
(and probably that you’ve ever heard), but we took the time to give it
atmosphere and structure instead of being heavy for heavy’s sake.

spent a lot of time on this album mixing and mastering it ourselves so that we
could get the closest representation of the heaviness that is in our minds. We
didn’t want to let someone else’s polished and clean mix detract from the
dimension-shattering sound that we strive to achieve. This is album is in our
opinion the best thing we have released so far.”
