Ragana, the metal duo consisting of Maria and Coley (who prefer not to use their surnames), has its roots in the early 2010s DIY punk scene of Olympia, Washington. Now, they divide their time between Olympia and Oakland. The pair’s fresh album, Desolation’s Flower, is slated for release on October 27, under the banner of The Flenser, marking their first release for the record label.
The inaugural title track of the album, according to the band, is “a song of thanks honoring the queer and trans forebears, whether known or anonymous, blood-related or bonded by kinship, whose delight and persistence pave the way for our existence, and whose legacy motivates and aids us in standing against the rising wave of overtly displayed hatred and oppression.” The track can be found below for your listening pleasure.
