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.”

Date For Sophomore LP “The Murky Black Of Eternal Night” Set By Pyriphlegethon

Today, Iron Bonehead Productions set April 14th as the international release date for Pyriphlegethon’s highly anticipated second album, “The Murky Black of Eternal Night,” on vinyl LP format.

At the end of 2015, Iron Bonehead released this Dutch cult’s debut album, “Night of Consecration,” on vinyl and largely introduced the name Pyriphlegethon to the international underground. However, a new name it might’ve been, but Pyriphlegethon was actually yet another project of the insanely prolific Mories, who’s widely known for Gnaw Their Tongues but also such projects as De Magia Veterum and Cloak of Altering. With “Night of Consecration,” this was Mories at this most traditionally black metal, and it indeed bore his special, idiosyncratic touch.

But, with “The Murky Black of Eternal Night,” Mories takes Pyriphlegethon into deeper, darker waters of spellbinding, pitch-BLACK metal. Ever aptly titled, “The Murky Black of Eternal Night” is a a spiritual and even virtual quagmire of eldritch energies, spectral and distant but equally physical in its thrust. Whereas the comparatively more martial “Night of Consecration” emitted a strangely anthemic aspect, tethered as it was to first-wave black metal, “The Murky Black of Eternal Night” wanders down different corridors, opening up unknown spaces within the still-scabrously raw Pyriphlegethon aesthetic and layering mystical synths atop more often than not.

Likewise, at a slightly longer length than its full-length predecessor, this second album in its similarly 10-track structure portrays a more varied songcraft, ranging bestial blasts to strangely soothing soundscapes. The sum effect is not unlike a fever dream guided by the most subtle of magick – and a deeper penetration into the listener’s subconscious. Plunge into “The Murky Black of Eternal Night”!

Take the first plunge with the track “The Serpent’s Tongue” in the player below. The artwork and track listing are as follows:

1. Curse Of The Old Coffin
2. Monument Of Death
3. Funeral Bells
4. The Serpent’s Tongue
5. Summoning Ancient Evil
6. Return To The Tomb
7. The Murky Black Of Eternal Night
8. Cursed Blood
9. The Coldest Grave
10. Night On The Black Mountain
