Unflesh premiere “Bestowal of Decay” from their debut album “Savior”

The track, which can be streamed below, comes ahead of their debut full length release, “Savior”, which is due out on May 25.

This release follows 2016’s six song EP, “Transcendence To Eternal Obscurity”, which featured session drums from Hannes Grossman, known for his work in Alkaloid and formerly Obscura.

Date For Debut EP “The Beast Unburdened By Flesh” Issued By Grave Spirit

Today, Iron Bonehead Productions sets January 12, 2018 as the international release date for Grave Spirit’s striking debut EP, “The Beast Unburdened by Flesh,” on 7″ EP format.

Grave Spirit was spawned in the earliest days of 2017, born from the mind of BW and slowly put together during the early months of the year. After the writing was underway and early recording of the guitar work began in earnest, ES was recruited on drums, and TG joined the project on bass. “The Beast Unburdened By Flesh” was summoned in the summer of the same year as Grave Spirit’s creation, and now comes to horrify the world with tales of the mythical, both living and undead. Its primary foundation is the eternal fire of black witching metal, but here suffused with the ghastliness and dread of eldritch death metal. Its powers are simple yet profound, and between these two tracks, Grave Spirit mark a more-than-promising start to terrorizing souls worldwide.

The artwork and track listing are as follows:

Side A: Absorbing Essence from Underneath
Side B: The Beast Unburdened by Flesh

Hideous Divinity Posts New Song “Sub Specie Aeternitatis”

With the release of “Adveniens,” the new long player from Italian death metal legion Hideous Divinity, drawing closer to release, today the “Sub Specie Aeternitatis” track is offered for public consumption.

Elaborates guitarist Enrico Schettino of the track: “Sometimes when you write music, or when you listen to music, you’re blessed with a feeling that may last just a couple of seconds. The feeling that Baruch Spinoza would have called a view from the perspective of the eternal, in Latin is ‘Sub Specie Aeternitatis.’

“It’s like our Angelus Novus, becoming one with God and experiencing the truth of what’s first for nature. The nature speaks to the poet, and the poet becomes historian. Here’s an ode to the poet, to the world, and its fumy remains. Here’s another violent reflection on art, using the only language Hideous Divinity knows.”
