Australian one-man band NEKRASOV continues to orbit between the two poles of power electronics and black metal…

Beneath Posts “Eyecatcher” Lyric Video

Next month, Icelandic death metal unit Beneath will unleash third full-length album, “Ephemeris.” Recorded, mixed, and mastered by Fredrik Nordström at the acclaimed Studio Fredman in the fall of 2016, “Ephemeris” features new recruit Mike Heller at the drum stool.

The result is nine tracks of relentless brutality, and today one of those cuts comes online. Check out the “Eyecatcher” lyric video below.

Notes guitarist Unnar Sigurðsson: “‘Ephemeris’ is our very best release so far. We wanted to do an album more dynamic and natural than those before and we are extremely proud of the outcome. It has elements from all of us combined into something very different from the other releases.”

Adds Jóhann Ingi Sigurðsson, “‘Ephemeris’ has been a demanding album for us personally and in many ways, it represents a turning point for the band. We’ve always pushed ourselves in ways that keep us invested and engaged in our music­, and on this album, that meant making big changes to our overall sound. There are songs that are a marriage of pure heaviness and brutality, while on the other spectrum there are some very challenging technical arrangements pushing the limits of our playing abilities. In the end, we ended up with an album that feels musically multidimensional and that we are extremely proud of.”

It is the path of ecstasy, darkness and light and actual magical brotherhood. This is the Path of the Red Dragon. ‘Erotomysticism’ is the outcome of a Draconian collaboration, coming from the deepest core of the Draconian Brotherhood of Ordo Draconis et Atri Adamantis.”
