"Packed with evil riffs, vicious grooves and an uncharacteristic abundance of soaring clean vocals...Black Anvil return to primordial chaos on 'As Was'" - Noisey

"Like Celtic Frost before them, Black Anvil find ways to summon profound darkness without tapping into black-metal clich├ęs. Their latest ebbs and flows with effortless grace." - Pitchfork

New York City's BLACK ANVIL has shared a full stream of the 'As Was' full-length prior to release this Friday. Listen to over 50 minutes of thought-provoking, modern black metal, alongside an exclusive interview with Paul Delaney, via Noisey at this location.

"I wanted it to have something to do with what comes after death," said vocalist/bassist Paul Delany about the album title meaning. "Raeph [drums] just busted it out: As Was. And I was like, "Sold." It made a lot of sense to me. Even though it sounds bigger than anything we've ever done, it sounds more organic and primal. It's a return to primordial chaos. So it's a very different approach and mindset and yet also a continuation of the last record."

January 13th, 2017 will see the worldwide release of As Was via Relapse Records on CD/2xLP/Digital. Physical pre-orders and bundles are available via Relapse.com HERE and digital downloads can be pre-ordered via Bandcamp AT THIS LOCATION.
