Carach Angren is streaming their fairly horrifying new track "Operation Compass." The song's lyrics deal with poisoning water during World War II to discourage retreat. So the usual sunny, cheery topics the band deals with.
"'Operation Compass; will take you back to the sceneries of World War II in North Africa. British forces were instructed to use Dippel’s bone oil to poison water wells in case of a retreat, hence the connection to the conceptual story on the album. Listen and watch the phenomenal lyric video, once again done by Tamara/ Aimed & Framed, as this battle turns into a gruesome fata morgana."
It should be noted Franckensteina Strataemontanus was originally due out May 29 but was pushed back to June 26. Pre-orders for Franckensteina Strataemontanus are available here, including glow in the dark vinyl and a box set with a mask. Franckensteina Strataemontanus will also be Carach Angren's final album with drummer Ivo "Namtar" Wijers, who recently left the band due to frustrations with the music industry.
