AHAB is back with their new album The Boats of the Glen Carrig which is set to be released worldwide on August 28th 2015 via Napalm Records. The band has unveiled two first teasers for their upcoming album, as well as an exclusive song preview for the track “Turn of a Friendly Card”, a cover version of Alan Parsons Project featuring Olav Iversen of Sagh on guest vocals. This track will be available on a 7“ inch vinyl with a strictly limited to 500 copies Wooden box edition.
With The Boats of the Glen Carrig the band was inspired by the novel of the same name written by William Hope Hodgson, first published in 1907. It is widely regarded as “a survival and adventure story with elements of psychedelic horror in the form of weird weed monsters and dangerous snail-like creatures,” thus making it a perfect backdrop for AHAB‘s doom and gloom approach.
