Crescent Premiere New Song “Beyond the Path of Amenti” From Upcoming New Album “The Order of Amenti”

Egypt’s blackened death metal band Crescent premiere a new song entitled “Beyond the Path of Amenti”, taken from their upcoming new album “The Order of Amenti”, which will be out in stores February 9th, 2018 via Listenable Records.

Check out now “Beyond the Path of Amenti” below.

Explains the band:

“The heart and soul of The Order of Amenti album resides in the “Beyond the Path of Amenti” track. It represents the key features of the whole album in what it holds of melodies, hooks and aggression. The track unfolds the visions of the afterlife and the grandeur of the Egyptian afterlife mythology encompassed in the divinity and might of the great Anubis. The Hieroglyphs on the walls illustrate the path of death and resurrection, for nothing is as certain as the inevitable justice. We take pride in using, for the first time in metal history, full sentences and verses in real spoken hieroglyphs representing Anubis’ speech! “Beyond the Path of Amenti” is the first part of a trilogy that wholly forms a lyrical epic and musical journey.”
