After seething and conjuring during the Covid-19 lock-downs, Hadal Maw are now set to return with their most vicious material to date, Oblique Order. The EP presents four tracks of uncompromising and confronting aural violence whilst also introducing new members Liam Weedall (Dyssidia) and Jarrod Sorbian (Départe).

The title track features guest vocals from three of Australia’s most accomplished vocalists; Karina Utomo (High Tension), Luke Frizon (Growth) and Antony Oliver (Descent).
