Our Bandcamp of the day features Wisconsin-based death metallers Ara. The group are back with their sophomore album, Jurisprudence, due for release May 15, and it’s the sought-after follow-up to their 2014 debut, Devourer of Worlds.
Ara recently teamed up with Invisible Oranges to release their second single, “Abhortion,” which can be jammed below.
The cover art for Jurisprudence was handled by renowned artist Eliran Kantor, known for his exemplary work for groups such as Testament, Iced Earth, Sodom, Sigh, Hate Eternal, Archspire, and many more. As a group who have taken their time to achieve something unique with each offering, Jurisprudence are surely the most developed work from Ara to date.
Simultaneously mind-bogglingly complex, savagely brutal, and driven by atypical technical melodic death metal ideas inspired by Anata, Jurisprudence is neither typical fare nor easy to peg as simply one form of death metal at any given point of the release
Jurisprudence is due for release May 15 and is available to pre-order here.
