2019 is already stacked with hotly anticipated albums, and now we can all add another one to the list. Dreadnought have announced their first release with Profound Lore, a brand new LP entitled Emergence. This band made quite the splash with their last LP A Wake In Sacred Waves back in 2017, and we’ve been patiently waiting for the next record. Thankfully, we also get a new song along with the album announcement! “Besieged” is the first in the new album’s tracklist; it’s layered, progressive, and beautiful, surpassing my lofty expectations.

Chills, right? Such a doom casserole! We get elements of jazz, folk, progressive tendencies, and even a little black metal can be found on the ingredients list. Simply put, there’s really no one else executing these ideas on the same level as Dreadnought. If the rest of the album is anything like “Besiege”, then you can fully expect me to find a place for Emergence on my list of favorite albums of the year.

Check out the full tracklist and cover art below!



1. Besieged
2. Still
3. Pestilent
4. Tempered
5. The Waking Realm
