New EP “Cultus In Tenebris” Announced By Ctulu

German sea storming extreme metal act Ctulu will release the 4-Track EP entitled “Cultus in Tenebris” on October 6th in the U.S. via Static Tension Recordings.

“Cultus in Tenebris” was recorded at the same time as the 2016 selt-titled album. Ctulu wanted to reduce both these works to minimum duration while containing maximum quality. The band has never before filtered so many ideas that didn’t make it on the final release.

“Cultus in Tenebris” is a concept EP that tries to catch the spirit of Necronomicon rituals. It is a gathering of exotic weirdness, of seeing in the dark, of praising the old, capricious, mad and wild gods. This is Ctulu’s first genuine U.S. release.

More information on the EP is expected soon. The artwork can be seen here:

Acherontas Signs Deal With Agonia Records

Greek occult black metal group Acherontas has signed a new deal with Agonia Records. The band returns to the label after previously departing in 2011, with the “Vamachara” album due to be re-released on vinyl this coming August 31st, along with a rare demo and a new cover made by Viktoria Polikarpova.

Acherontas is currently working on the band’s next studio album, due to be finished by February of 2018. The band commented:

“During the creation of the second part of Reptilian Unification the synaxis of Acherontas also compiled the bases and foundations for the third one. Now we work on the final touches to accomplish the utmost forms and complete the trilogy gloriously. In December we enter the studio again to record the final part, which will be revealed on the solstice of 2018. A circle of creation closes and a new epoch begins. Spirit Above Matter!”
