US based AZURE EMOTE led by Mike Hrubovcak (VILE, MONSTROSITY, ABRAXAS, DIVINE RAPTURE) have just released their 2nd studio album "The Gravity Of Impermanence".
"The Gravity Of Impermanence" is an original mix of Avant-garde Death Metal featuring pummeling blast beats, haunting female vocals, violins, saxophone, harmonica and a barrage of other eclectic surprises, all brought together into one melting pot of misanthropic darkness.

Also featuring guest saxophone by Bruce Lamont (YAKUZA), keyboard solos by Jonah Weingarten (ECHOTERRA, PYRAMAZE), guest guitar solo by J.J. Hrubovcak (HATE ETERNAL, VILE, DIVINE RAPTURE), and guest electronic programming by Jason Ian-Vaughn Eckert (TODESBONDEN, AURORA BOREALIS).
