Finnish Death Metal trio Desolate Shrine will release the new album “Deliverance from the Godless Void” on November 10 via Dark Descent Records. The album’s opening track, “The Primordial One,” is streaming at the bottom.
It may be Desolate Shrine’s fourth album (third on Dark Descent Records) in six years, but the band shows no sign of fatigue on their newest opus. The band continues to erase the already thin line existing between black, death and doom and once again come out of the abyss with their own instantly recognizable style.
Recorded during 2016 with the same core trio since 2011’s debut Tenebrous Towers, this new beast, while no less epic than its predecessors (three of the seven songs featured here are at over eight minutes long) is even more textured and tortured while at the same time highly atmospheric. And while a track like “Unmask the Face of False” may be the heaviest and slowest they’ve ever done, that doesn’t prevent “Demonic Evocation Prayer” from being transfigured by hellish blast beats either. Still, as with each of their albums, Desolate Shrine’s latest full-length is to be considered like one big entity, almost like a ceremony if you will, one that demands to be experienced from beginning to end without interruption.
The album artwork (shown below) was created by L.L. Dan Lowndes mastered “Deliverance from the Godless Void” at Resonance Sound Studio.
The track listing is as follows:
1. The Primordial One
2. Lord of the Three Realms
3. Unmask the Face of False
4. The Waters of Man
5. The Graeae
6. Demonic Evocation Prayer
7. The Silent Star
8. …of Hell
