The Order of The Precious Blood, a progressive hardcore punk force from St John’s, Newfoundland, Canada is releasing their second single this year “Black Hole” following the intense “Cheaper But Will Do”. These two sides of the same coin come in rapid succession, showcase the band’s versatility, and serve to whet the listener’s palettes for a teased EP. While the former reveals the band's ability to find order in chaos, the latter demonstrates their prowess in orchestrating large and epic sections without compromising aggression or musicality. The songs signify a maturity in songwriting as the band crystallizes their ideas and finds new ways to blend their diverse influences. The comment on what’s in store:

“Black Hole is a song that began a long time ago as just a small idea and had to have the right group of musicians to really bring it to life. This was one of two songs we wrote together during the spring/early summer of 2023 in our first year as a band and we wanted to dip our toes into writing as an entire group. The song is a little more of an emotional nature and it deals with some personal things, but in a broad sense it’s about being dragged into a black hole in your life despite your best efforts to save yourself from that very fate.”

Musically, "Black Hole" kicks off with a hardcore groove that transforms into an enormous burst of punishing, explosive, dissonant drops, propelling listeners into the depths of hell at breakneck speed. Unhinged screams from a hellish sermon break through the cries of a million angels. The lyrics vividly describe the road leading into the fire of hell, dragged against one's will through a black hole that had been vehemently avoided.

“Black Hole” offers a more emotional listening experience compared to the band's previous work. The instrumentation and overall sound remain aggressive and heavy, flaunting black metal and hardcore influences, yet retaining a bright spot of melody that leads the listener back into the depths of despair. It is recommended for fans of Every Time I Die, Code Orange, and The Dillinger Escape Plan.
