SPB exclusive: Bréag Naofa - II

Bréag Naofa - II

This month Scene Point Blank is pleased to debut the newest LP from Bréag Naofa, II. Out soon, the LP delivers 40 minutes of doom-ridden sludge that’s equally harsh and atmospheric.

The band, whose name roughly translates to “Holy Lie” explore issues that negatively affect the human experience, including (as their name suggests) religion.

Check it out below, and stay tuned for a new EP from the band as well.

II officially releases on August 11 via Halo of Flies (US) and Shove (Italy).
