Formed in 2015, Red Usurper combines their many disparate influences into a furious sound that defies rigid classification. Blending elements of sludge, doom and groove, this Saint John, New Brunswick area group crafts a unique style that is both crushingly heavy and delicately nuanced. They play loudly and passionately using themes of destruction, ruin and redemption to examine the darkness that exists within and beyond.

The latest offering from southern New Brunswick’s Red Usurper, the bands 3rd official release and 2nd full-length. Digital copies come with an exclusive alternate version of »In Misery« and a selection of digital album art.
