It’s finally here. The thoroughly teased new Oh Sees album, Smote Reverser just dropped on all streaming formats and you can listen to it in its full glory below. The release comes on a particularly solid day of new albums that will make August one of the best months for new material.

Soundcloud stream link here.

The album comes as a change of pace, as fans say Smote Reverser is a great way of tricking metal heads into listening to the garage rock/prog enthusiast Oh Sees. Indeed, from the cover, to the thrash heavy notes of “C”, the release is a much more sonically menacing and longwinded release than normal, which we’re into.

You can grab limited vinyl copies here, so get on it fast before they’re gone!

Make sure to catch the band on tour across the globe, as their hitting other countries hard during the next few months. For more dates, check here.
