Hecate Enthroned Posts New Lyric Video “Erebus And Terror” Online

With Embrace Of The Godless Aeon, their first record in five years, proving to be one of the best-reviewed extreme metal releases of the year to date, the UK-based symphonic blackened death metal group Hecate Enthroned have unveiled a lyric video for the album track “Erebus And Terror,” which features guest vocals by Sarah Jezebel Deva (Cradle Of Filth, Therion, Mortiis).

Tracklisting:

1. Ascension
2. Revelations In Autumn Flame
3. Temples That Breathe
4. Goddess Of Dark Misfits
5. Whispers Of The Mountain Ossuary
6. Enthrallment
7. The Shuddering Giant (digital bonus track on vinyl edition)
8. Silent Conversations With Distant Stars
9. Erebus And Terror

Embrace Of The Godless Aeon – the band’s first recording with vocalist Joe Stamps, who joined the band in 2015 – sees the group continue to deftly mix black with death, modern with classic and extreme with symphonic. The album, which features guest vocals on three songs by Sarah Jezebel Deva (Cradle Of Filth, Therion, Mortiis), was co-produced by Dan Abela (Voices, The Antichrist Imperium).

Says Dylan Hughes, “This album with its epic sweeping orchestration and heavy aggression represents a new chapter for us cementing the chemistry of the current lineup and our partnership with M-Theory. A welcome return from Sarah Jezebel Deva hints to the grandiose flavor of earlier releases, but this time, it’s tempered with a guitar and drum sound forged from solid steel and then edged by a razor-sharp production from Dan Abela. The summoning of unholy flame and terror that is the cover art is an oil painting commissioned from in-demand satanic artist Nestor Avalos and begins your visceral journey through cold bleak landscapes, crushing tormented seas and searing shards of heavy metal.”
