Denver, Colorado's CLINGING TO THE TREES OF A FOREST FIRE has set "Songs of Ill Hope and Desperation" as the title of its upcoming debut album, due this spring via Prosthetic Records. The CD was recorded by Dave Otero at Flatline Audio (CEPHALIC CARNAGE, CATHETER, COBALT) in the band's hometown and is said to be the group's "most dynamic, bleakest, and dirtiest material to date."
Formed in 2006, CLINGING TO THE TREES OF A FOREST FIRE released an EP ("Harmonies From Bleeding Mouths") and followed it up with a full-length effort, "Omega Drunk On The Blood Of Alpha", in 2008 on Debello Recordings. The band's sound has been described as "funeral grind," as it's "too slow for grindcore, too fast for doom," and has been compared to that of the likes of BRUTAL TRUTH, PIG DESTROYER, DISCORDANCE AXIS, EYEHATEGOD and NAPALM DEATH.
CLINGING TO THE TREES OF A FOREST FIRE has toured relentlessly throughout North America since forming, and is currently planning a summer trek with Oregon's BURIALS.
