Underling Signs With Neuropa Records, Announces Re-Releases

Neuropa Records is thrilled to announce the signing of U.S. atmospheric black metal outfit Underling and the worldwide re-issuing of the band’s first two releases: “Breathe Deeply” and “Bloodworship.”

Formed in Northern California in 2012, by Robert Morey of Fallujah and Antonio Palermo, the group self-released one EP titled “Breathe Deeply” in 2013 and a full-length album “Bloodworship” in 2015.

Heavy Blog Is Heavy called the group “a powerful creative force that can go anywhere from here,” while Metal Sucks praised that “Bloodworship more than lived up to expectations based on their cast of characters. Best of all, Underling sound remarkably little like any of the members’ other bands; they are entirely their own beast, a lumbering mammoth-like mix of death metal, black metal, post-hardcore and post-everything.”

The reissues are set for release on July 10th on digisleeve CD and pre-orders are now available via Neuropa here. Meanwhile, this July Underling will embark on a first North American tour along with atmospheric blacl metal group Ghost Bath and sludge act He Whose Ox Is Gored.

Fuath Releasing Debut Album “I”

Neuropa Records is proud to announce the release of “I,” the debut album of Scotland’s Fuath, a new black metal project created by vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Andy Marshall, better known as the mastermind behind Celtic black metal act Saor.

Unlike Saor, which finds Marshall focusing mostly on a folksy and epic black metal, here the musician delves into a darker and more melancholic side of the genre, marrying fierce and harsh riffs, unrelenting double-kick drums and raspy screams with melancholic melodies and hypnotic, gloomy ambiences. Andy Marshall comments:

“I am a massive fan of hypnotic atmospheric black metal, especially early 90’s stuff like Burzum’s ‘Hvis lyset tar oss,’ early Darkthrone and also modern bands such as Paysage d’hiver and Vemod.

“I wanted to create a cold, hypnotic and melancholic black metal album which tried to capture the feelings I felt listening to these bands. I always come back to these bands when winter comes along and I feel their sounds are perfect for this time of year, almost kind of spiritual in a way.”

Mixed and mastered by Spenser Morris, “I” will be released on February 1st on CD and LP via Neuropa Records. The track listing is:

1. In the Halls of the Hunter
2. Blood
3. The Oracle
4. Spirit of the North
