The band prolific band just released a stunning new album on May 1st, The House Primordia, and are promising three EPs worth of music leading up to the album drop. The band have decided to take a different approach and release three EPs ahead of the full-length, each of which the band note “are all a complete sonic departure from Magus and from each other…”.

Each record will focus on a particular sound-noisy drone, quiet acoustic, and melodic grunge-all of which is incorporated into the new record, subsumed in the band’s more standard doom metal.
