DAWN OF OUROBOROS have today shared a new single, Testudines, to all streaming platforms with an accompanying visualizer. Testudines is the third track to be taken from the Oakland, CA blackened progressive metal group's upcoming sophomore album, Velvet Incandescence, which is due out via Prosthetic Records on April 21.

Speaking on Testudines release, DAWN OF OUROBOROS' Tony Thomas (guitar / synths) comments: "Testudines is the second track on the album and is another example of how we like to vary our sound as a band. Instrumentally this one holds a lot of influence from jazz fusion with its harmonic structure, use of chords common in jazz, and frequent use of a swing feel.

"The whole band shows off our ability to play at high tempos while keeping our song structure melodic and coherent. Vocally, Chelsea uses several styles to show off her skills. With her use of her signature black metal shrieks, brutal lows, as well as her strong sense of melody with her clean singing. This is one we definitely can’t wait to perform live!"
