Following LPs on Skuld Records and Profane Existence, AGRIMONIA joined the Southern Lord roster in mid-2012. Their label debut, Rites Of Separation, was mixed by Fredrik Nordstrom at Studio Fredman (AT THE GATES, OPETH, ARCH ENEMY), and presents the band’s most damaging alloy of metallic influences to more expansive realms than ever. The album’s five massive, dense tracks encompass a full hour, delivering the band’s crustpunk ethos through grating, doom-filled riffs and post-metal voids, merging into an emotional and crushing blend of CRISIS, BOLT THROWER and NAUSEA.
