Denmark’s sludge metal three-piece RISING has just posted two new tracks on their Myspace-site. These are the first pieces of music from the band since 2009’s critically acclaimed self titled debut EP, and the two tracks are from a forthcoming 7-inch vinyl to be released on Red Tape on November 29th. The two tracks “Legacy of Wolves” and “Daughter of The Sun” displays an even fiercer and aggressive side of the band than heard on their debut EP.
RISING’s debut EP will finally be released as a vinyl, also on November 29th and hereby mark a simultaneous release of the 7” and the EP. The German based metal/punk-label Pain of Mind will be the label for the EP vinyl edition, which will be a 12” in a limited edition of 500 ex, of which 150 are white vinyl. Both vinyl releases will be available through RISING’s Myspace, the labels and various mail orders and record dealers throughout the world.

Apart from releasing the forthcoming new 7” vinyl and the 12” EP vinyl edition, RISING is hard at work writing their debut album to be recorded in March/April next year and released on a yet undisclosed German label in September 2011.
