As the final touches are being put on the highly anticipated second LP from ENABLER, La Fin Absolue Du Monde, the first single from this dynamic album to hammer the public, has been released via MetalSucks.
Another of ENABLER’s recordings to be inspired by the works of legendary horror/sci-fi director, John Carpenter – in this case, his 2005 episode of the Masters Of Horror series, Cigarette Burns — La Fin Absolue Du Monde was tracked with Shane Hotchstetler at Howl Street Recordings (Expire, Northless) and mixed by Steve Austin (Today Is The Day) at Austin Enterprises. A thirty-six minute battering of their most diverse and calculated material to date, the album is the result of the new stripped-down, three-piece lineup’s continuing drive to innovate their delivery. The album will be released on May 27th, just one day after ENABLER marks their debut invasion of the annual Maryland Deathfest.
One of the shortest and most volatile tracks on La Fin Absolue Du Monde, “Prey,” is now playing at longtime ENABLER fanatics, MetalSucks, stating of the song, “GET READY TO HAVE YOUR FACE RIPPED OFF,” then continuing, “MetalSucks is only-too-happy to give you your first taste of the album in the form of ‘Prey,’ sixty-six of the most intense seconds you will ever experience. RPGs are less destructive than this shit.”
Unload “Prey” now RIGHT HERE.
The bold, comic-style artwork of La Fin Absolue Du Monde, designed by Chris Smith, will enshroud the album, coming together for release in a joint offensive between ENABLER’s cohorts at The Compound, who released the band’s Flies EP, and Creator-Destructor, who released the vinyl version of their Southern Lord-released debut LP, All Hail The Void. Already in manufacturing at the mighty Pirates Press, the vinyl version of La Fin Absolue Du Monde will come in two schemes based on the cover art colors; the Creator-Destructor version in a half-and-half Grey/Halloween Orange pattern, and The Compound version on grey wax with heavy Black/White/’Orange Crush’ splatter, each in runs of 250 copies in a wide-spine, high gloss jacket, and with a digital download code included. The CD will be housed with a high-quality, six-panel digipak.
Preorder the CD and The Compound version of the wax HERE, the CD and Creator-Destructor version of the wax HERE, all merch/physical copies through ENABLER directly HERE, and digital preorders are now at Bandcamp, HERE.
Additionally, Skeletal Lightning will be doing a cassette run of the album in a run of 250 on chrome quality, orange tapes with black imprinting, a full-color, two-sided jcard. Preorders are up HERE.
ENABLER will hit the roads heavy in advance of and beyond the release of La Fin Absolue Du Monde, with a full run already locked down for this month, where they’ll sync up with The Compound labelmates, Cop Problem, on the opening night of the sixteenth annual New England Metal & Hardcore Festival, followed by several other shows together. Altogether, ENABLER will take on three weeks of dates on this run, immediately followed by another realm of touring which brings them back eastward on a tour to Maryland Deathfest 2014.
