Zoroaster release split 7-inch with Portland's Aldebaran

"Seeing the Dark" and "Spirit Molecule," the first two cuts from Zoroaster's The Voice of Saturn, have materialized on the B-side of a split 7-inch with Portland, Oregon's Aldebaran (Kreation Records).

Both acts are cut from a similar cloth of slow, doom-laden metal riffs, and the vinyl treatment really blows out the bottom end of the dirge. The bass-heavy mix draws out the rich and blackened qualities, and as a teaser to the forthcoming vinyl version of The Voice of Saturn, it definitely leaves you wanting more.

Aldebaran's side is a growly voiced anthem called "Aldebaran Red," which fits smoldering guitars and war drums over dueling high/low godlike grumbles. There's less of a psychedelic bent to Aldebaran's side of the record. Instead, these Portland tormentors summon a maelstrom of teeth-gnashing, scorched-earth vitriol. 900 copies pressed on black vinyl, 100 on clear/"black haze" vinyl.
