Canadian death metal band Chthe’ilist has completed work on debut full-length album “Le Dernier Crépuscule,” with the advance track “Voidspawn” now online and available below. Profound Lore Records also comments:
“Conjured in 2010 by the duo of vocalist/guitarist/bassist Philippe Tougas and drummer Philippe Boucher, Chthe’ilist’s intent was to play abhorred, morbid and dark atmospheric brutal technical death metal with over-the-top dual-harmonic guitar shredding.
“The result would be the ‘Amechth’ntaas’m’rriachth’ demo which was released in 2012 and caused quite the stir in the underground death metal scene. The band’s sound would ultimately reminisce the bizarre aura of such cult luminaries as Demilich (along with giving an overall nod to early ‘90s Finnish death metal, Demigod, Abhorrence, Xysma etc.), Timeghoul, Infester, and Adramelech all while creating a horrid and vile atmosphere of enveloping dread.
“Now almost five years since their inception, Chthe’ilist’s earth devouring debut full-length album ‘Le Dernier Crépuscule’ is finally preparing itself for its impending release on Jan 29th on compact disc and digital manifestations (vinyl edition via Dark Descent sometime in the spring along with the tape edition via Graceless Recordings). Recorded and tracked in various places and mixed by Greg Chandler (Esoteric, Cruciamentum, Indesinence) at his Priory Studios, ‘Le Dernier Crépuscule’ is a 53+ minute other-worldly brutal and guttural death metal offering from the stars that will serve as some of the darkest, most twisted, vile, complex, and over-the-top time-stretching death metal you’ll succumb to all year.
“An offering much more advanced and devastating than the band’s demo where some of the tracks from ‘Amechth’ntaas’m’rriachth’ have been given the total reprise treatment as wholly new interpretations on ‘Le Dernier Crépuscule.'”
