Cormorant Reveals “Diaspora” Album Cover

“Diaspora” is the impending new full-length album from progressive black/death practitioners Cormorant. Slated to drop this August 11th, the consuming follow-up to 2014’s “Earth Diver” sees Cormorant take progressive metal in expansive and exploratory new directions.

Recorded and mixed by Greg Wilkinson (Vastum, Graves At Sea, Noothgrush, Brainoil) at Earhammer Studios in Oakland, California, the sixty-one-minute offering features the band’s longest, most detail-oriented compositions to date.

“Diaspora” also features performances from renowned cellist Jackie Perez Gratz (Grayceon, Giant Squid, ex-Amber Asylum) and was mastered by Brad Boatright (Sleep, YOB, Gatecreeper). Additionally, Utah-based visionary artist Jeff Christensen created the album’s vivid and stunning four-panel artwork, revealed for the first time today.

Issues Christensen, “The idea was to create four panels of artwork based on a migration theme. I thought it would be interesting to have the panels run consecutively to form an expansive, evolving image where the eyes can just roam. We wanted each painting to be able to hold its own as a standalone image but also be a link to the wider image of the migratory theme. The original artwork was done with oil paints on four 16″ x 16″ panels. The entire process was a challenge, and the finished images are really different than anything I’ve done before. I was given a lot of reign to just do my thing and I’m very happy with the way it turned out.”
