German sludge/doom masters Black Shape Of Nexus have finished recording their latest album, which according to their label Exile On Main Stream Records, will be a beast entitled Carrier containing 6 tracks to total almost 50 minutes of new music. The record is currently being mastered by the uber-fantastic Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering in Berlin and will be finalized for release through your loved ones from Exile On Mainstream in the Spring of 2016 on CD and 2xLP.
Black Shape Of Nexus vocalist Malte Seidel issued a statement on the experience of recording the album – “Carrier is the result of a band being in a constant state of deterioration. Doing a record is a very unpleasant and harmful process for us. Creating Negative Black already was a nightmare, but with Carrier the understanding of the term nightmare needs to be expanded. This is not being said to play the tension and dissent create great art card. This album is not art. This album is not musicianship. This album is simply the album that we were able to do under the current circumstances while sometimes asking ourselves if a split-up would not be the better option. The final mix of Carrier is done at the moment.”
