Full Of Hell Premiere New Song “Armory Of Obsidian Glass” Feat. Lingua Ignota

Full Of Hell have premiered a new song titled “Armory Of Obsidian Glass.” This track features Lingua Ignota and it will appear on the band’s new album “Weeping Choir,” which will be released on May 17. Ignota commented:

“‘Armory Of Obsidian Glass‘ rips, and is probably my favorite FOH track to date, so it was a great pleasure to work on it. I wanted my vocals to provide a counterpoint to all the savagery, to pick up on and accentuate harmonic things happening in the music in an unexpected way. I think the effect overall is chilling, wild, and I’m excited for people to hear it — many thanks to my friends for letting me contribute to this amazing song.”
