Uzala - Uzala LP/CS

Boise, Idaho's Uzala will be releasing their self-titled debut record soon. Comprised of vocalist/guitarist Darcy Nutt, vocalist/guitarist Chad Remains, bassist Nick Phit (Graves at Sea/Atriarch), and drummer Stephen Gere (Gere recently left the band and has been replaced by Chuck Watkins), they make killer fuzzed-out doom-rock that fans of bands like Jex Thoth, Blood Ceremony, Witch Mountain, The Devil's Blood would almost certainly enjoy.

The album was recorded and produced by Blake Green of Wolvserpent and mastered by Andy Lippoldt of Persistence in Mourning. The album artwork was created by Darcy Nutt, who in addition to playing in Uzala, is also a world-renowned tattoo artist and owner of Chalice Tattoo. Design was handled by none other than Stephen O'Malley.

Uzala will be released on vinyl by At War With False Noise. It is being pressed in an edition of 333 copies on 180g vinyl, in heavy "tip-on" Stoughton sleeves with printed inners. Preorders are being taken now, and each preorder comes with a black patch with the Uzala sigil printed in silver. There will be a separate preorder option for that includes the album, the patch, and a black T-shirt with the album artwork printed in white.

The cassette version will be released by Witch Sermon. It will be limited to 111 copies, and the first 33 orders will include a black patch with the logo printed in white. The cassette version will include a bonus track, "Cataract," which was recorded during the same sessions. Contact Andy at Witch Sermon for availability.
