The Swedish sludge black metal band THIS GIFT IS A CURSE are now unleashing their forthcoming album ‘All Hail The Swinelord‘, which has been scheduled for worldwide release on the 16th of October through Season Of Mist.

The name of the record is “All Hail the Swinelord”, and the record itself is a thematic album about the self-inflicted process of dehumanization and the loss of all notions of what we consider existence.
