Eric W. Brown – Vale of Pnath – Blacker Than – Exclusive Drum Play-through

From Eric: “Vale of Pnath is a 5-piece melodic technical death metal band from Denver, CO. We play fast notes in an order that would surprise you, and “II” you won’t believe, as in album #2, as in the name of our second album, which is entitled “II”. Our new album features a new line-up and some really great new songs full of leveled-up melodic technicality, catchy riffs that rock out at quick tempos, and some ripper guest solos from a few of the most talented guitarists we know.”

“The album was recorded with Dave Otero at Flatline Audio (Cephalic Carnage, Cattle Decapitation, Allegaeon) and this video was made in my home studio. There are a couple minor mistakes because originally this wasn’t going to be just a drum video, but all the parts are accurate, so I dare you to enjoy it all the same.”

II comes out on June 10, and we’ll be hitting the road in July to promote it alongside Arkaik and Singularity.
