Black Map Debut New Track “Chasms” From Upcoming Album “Melodoria”


Black Map‘s new album “Melodoria” has been scheduled for a November 05th release through Minus Head Records. The band co-produced the album alongside Zack Ohren (Chelsea Grin, Machine Head) and pre-orders for it are up here.

The song “Chasms” has been launched as the lead single and can be heard below. Vocalist/bassist Ben Flanagan also spoke of the album as well, offering:

“Music and art, to me, has always been a kind of human binding agent. Even amidst the pure chaos of our world, here is this thing that’s there to excite us, to comfort us, and to help us get through it.”

Guitarist Mark Engles added:

“We went for a very direct approach early on with the tunes on the first album (“…And We Explode“). The natural progression into ‘In Droves‘ was to branch out into other areas of our influences and music we enjoy. ‘Melodoria‘ is yet another step out onto different limbs of our tastes and abilities.”
