Rwake's first album, 'Xenoglossalgia,' gets reissued

Just in time for Valentine's Day, Relapse Records has provided the important public service of reissuing the debut album/demo, "Xenoglossalgia (The Last Stage of Awareness),” by seminal North Little Rock doom metal band Rwake, originally released in 1998. A collage of demonic energy, pitch black emotional turmoil, spacey samples and genre-evading twists and turns (Popol Vuh synths, folk-rock interludes), the record is heavy and unpredictable and great.  

(For context, just watch front man C.T.'s essential documentary, "Slow Southern Steel," on YouTube.) 

Stream it at Decibel, then purchase on iTunes or on vinyl, limited edition silver vinyl or CD via Relapse's site.
