Lorna Shore Posts “Flesh Coffin” Guitar Playthrough

New Jersey metal band Lorna Shore released sophomore album “Flesh Coffin” on February 17th with Outerloop Records.

As the band prepares to hit the road tomorrow for a national headlining trek, the “Beg for Death” tour, today the band has dropped a playthrough video of the album’s title track. The clip features guitarists Adam De Micco and Connor Deffley and can be seen below. On the video, Adam De Micco states:

“We are excited to finally bring this playthrough of ‘Flesh Coffin’ to you guys. It features a lot of the ideas I tried out for the first time and help lay foundation for the rest of the album.

We can’t wait to see what Artificial Brain has been working on this past year.
