Of Grace and Gravity is out March 8, 2024.
The lyrics, laden with poetic intensity, evoke a journey through the tormented landscapes of the soul. “We hope in her loins for the assumption, The oath is palavered at her breast”. Merrimack tempt the divide between faith and disillusionment, confronting the weight of our cryptic existence.
With each writhing verse, Merrimack slinks along the contours of existential despair, casting a light on the ferments of stone and sighs of the earth. “Under the Aimless Spheres” is as challenging as it is extreme, a tumultuous dance of divine contempt and mortal longing. Yet it’s also familiar, thrilling territory for a band that’s always cutting along the fine line between what’s sacred and profane.
