On June 21st the band released Seven Pathways to Annihilation their second album for Prosthetic Records. The album was mixed and mastered by Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me, The Contortionist) and features the recurring contributions of Kevin Hufnagel (Dysrhythmia, Gorguts) on lead guitars and Bruce Lamont (Yakuza, Brain Tentacles) on baritone saxophone plus the very special guest appearances of Marty Friedman and Matt Baldwinson (Tangaroa, Dream Tröll, II II II) on lead guitars.
Howling Sycamore’s self-titled debut came out in January 2018 and was very positively received by press and public: it was praised for the bold artistic direction and ingenuity. “I consider our debut album a solid introduction to the band’s sound: in only 38 minutes we were able to display Howling Sycamore’s vast range of influences and our strong will to not fit in,” remarks Tiso. “With our second album I wanted things to be slightly more challenging for the listener and we ended up with a much denser collection of songs.”
