Celebrated post-industrial band :Bahntier// returns after a six year silence with a new album, titled The Age of Discord, due for released on December 4 via Rustblade. Pre-orders for the album are now available via the label’s website, in both standard edition CD and a limited edition box set containing a colored LP, poster, and a woodburn branded ouija board. The band’s lineup features founder Stefano Rossello, as well as long time members Filippo Corradin and Skinny Puppy drummer Justin Bennett.
:Bahntier// was founded in 1999 by Rossello as an ambient/experimental project, eventually adding vocals and incorporating elements of electro, noise, and harsh industrial. The band’s most recent release prior to The Age of Discord was 2009’s Enoeraew, a collaborative effort with Black Sun Productions; in addition, :Bahntier//’s music has appeared on several compilation releases. Rossello later founded Rustblade, which has become one of Italy’s most prominent record labels focusing on industrial, noise, and experimental music.
