Morrow - Covenant Of Teeth (2016)

Crust/neocrust with cello from London, UK.

Shares many members with Anopheli. The lead vocalist was/is also the vocalist for Fall Of Efrafa, Momentum, Carnist, and Archivist.

David: Guitar, Bass and Drums | Alex: Vocals, art, narrative | Nicole: Cello

A wonderful surprise release. This is a 'sibling band' of Anopheli that is very similar in style. Plenty of guest vocals by many other great bands as well.

From The art of Alex CF's Facebook:

"After many years, the first album by Morrow is available to listen to and download! Morrow is the passion project of my lovely friend Dave and I, joined by lots of amazing friends who recorded guest vocals and instruments for us! For those who follow the music I am involved in, you know what to expect, emotional epic crust, with strings! Yeah I know, but we do this for the pure joy of creating it, and we hope you will enjoy it too! (If you like this sort of thing!) The album will be available to buy on a gatefold LP later this year, but for now, sit back, put on some decent headphones, and enjoy the voices of a reclaimed earth."

Agida - Live Demo (2015)

Agida is a dark hardcore band with violin and a female vocalist from Grodno, Belarus

Not an actual release, just a track that was put up on the band's VK page. From what I can tell, the vocalist is also the violinist, so I'm not sure how much violin will be in future songs.

Dead to a Dying World - Litany (2015)

Dead To A Dying World is a blackened epic crust/doom band from Dallas, Texas with viola.

Heidi Moore from fellow Texas "crust with strings" band Ecocide has been added to the lineup as a vocalist (replacing Sam Pruitt). Also looks like both the cellist and upright bass player have left the band and a violist was added for this release.

I'm excited.

From Facebook:

"Litany was produced by Billy Anderson and features guest performances from members of Pallbearer, Sabbath Assembly, and Pinkish Black. The double-LP will be a joint release with Gilead Media and Tofu Carnage Records in the US and Alerta Antifascista Records (official) in Europe. The CD version will be handled solely by Gilead Media."
