ROZAMOV states alongside the premiere of the album’s first single, “This Mortal Road encapsulates what this album is all about, which is why it’s the title track. We wrote the album during the snowiest winter in Boston history, making life in the city just a constant draining struggle. It was a really intense time to live in New England, and the cold and isolation of that winter worked its way into the riffs and the lyrics, giving the record the feel of a long and intense journey. This song is the start of that journey.”
With over forty minutes of textured, melody-laced doom metal, This Mortal Road presents a sonic catharsis featuring the longest, heaviest, and most progressive tracks ROZAMOV has ever created. The crushing production was recorded and mixed by Jon Taft at New Alliance Audio, and mastered by Nick Z at New Alliance East Mastering, the album finalized with photography by Andrew Weiss and layout by Matt Martinez.
This Mortal Road will see release March 3rd on vinyl through Battleground Records, on CD and cassette through Dullest Records, and digitally through ROZAMOV. Digital preorders are postedHERE, and physical preorders at Battleground HERE and Dullest HERE. View the trailer for This Mortal Road RIGHT HERE.
