Canada's Exalt present new album The Shape You Took Before the Ache, now streaming in full via Revolver.
Out this Friday, September 9th, on Good Fight Music in the US and New Damage Records throughout the rest of the world, The Shape You Took Before the Ache is a masterwork of cavemen-heavy hardcore, in line with crushers like Harm's Way, and laced with moody melody evoking '90s greats, from Godflesh to Deftones.
Vocalist Tyler Brand says the album is "something different, not only for us, but for the scene we have surrounded ourselves in."
It was produced by Pete Grossman and Andy Nelson at Bricktop Recording (Harm's Way, Weekend Nachos) and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Nails, Ringworm).
Exalt hits the road in October with Ringworm.
