Enthroned Reveals New Album “Cold Black Suns” Details

Black metal formation, Enthroned, have are streaming the first single from their new album, Cold Black Suns, which will be released via Season Of Mist on June 7. The song, “Silent Redemption,” can be heard below.

The band comments: “We’re proud to introduce our first single, ‘Silent Redemption’, from the upcoming album, Cold Black Suns. This track unveils one of the many layers of the long awaited 11th opus. With ‘Silent Redemption’, we take you along to Aokigahara, the infamous Suicide Forest in Japan, to walk amongst the Yurei. While keeping our band’s trademark, this new album offers another pitch in the music, soaking the listener in bleak and fury.”

Enthroned is surely a name black metal fans are no strangers to. Over the course of the last 25 years, they have pushed the boundaries of black metal and the deepness of the Left Hand Path philosophy further within. The quintet has channelled that dedication into their newest record. Cold Black Suns is a dark and crushing black metal album where cold riffing, blood chilling atmospheres, and ritualistic drumming are keys to forging their most mature and accomplished opus to date.

The band, who crawled out of the black lands of Belgium in 1993, inked their first contract less than a year after its formation, and recorded debut album Prophecies Of Pagan Fire, which is now considered an all-time classic in the genre.

By then known as The Blackened Horde to fans and the scene at large, Enthroned recruited guitarist Nornagest and within two years entered Hautregard Studios to give birth to their second album. After the recording, tragedy struck and founding member and drummer Cernunnos (1997) took his own life.

The band went on to record the album using Cernunnos’s drum tracks from rehearsal recordings which were recorded by long time friend Da Cardoen, from the Belgian band Asphyxia. Towards The Skullthrone Of Satan was thus born. Since then, Enthroned went on to tour the world and have released a total of 10 full-lengths, one live album, and a hearty handful of splits and EPs.

Now, as the band celebrates 26 years as one of black metal’s premier outfits, they are ready to unleash number 11 onto the masses. Cold Black Suns is an icy, brutal offering from the band that will see a worldwide release on June 7 via Season Of Mist, making it their debut to the label. This is the band’s first album in five years, following up 2014’s critically acclaimed Sovereigns.

Tracklisting:

1. Ophiusa
2. Hosanna Satana
3. Oneiros
4. Vapula Omega
5. Silent Redemption
6. Aghoria
7. Beyond Humane Greed
8. Smoking Mirror

Lesser Glow Readies Debut Album, “Ruined,” Releases Live Video

Boston-based melodic post metal/doom collective Lesser Glow — featuring former members of Black Elm, Irepress, and The Proselyte — will release their debut full-length Ruined this June via Pelagic Records. With “Ruined,” Lesser Glow rips open a massively wide and confident blend of traditional doom meets melodic metal, paired with the likes of hardcore, post hardcore, noise rock, post rock and beyond. “Ruined” will see release on June 8th on CD, LP, and digital formats. The album is available for preorder in North America here and in Europe here. Digital orders are available here.

“I was caught in a major ’90s binge, listening to a bunch of stuff like Unsane and Failure, and feeling like that raw, palpable energy and songwriting was slipping away from modern heavy records,” comments main songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Andrew Nault, who is not only the guitarist in LESSER GLOW, but also session drummer for electro-post-hiphop outfit Arms And Sleepers. “I was tired of genre-choked bands, and missed hearing songs instead of riff parades.”

The lineup of the band came together organically, “though now the combination of individuals feels incredibly fortunate,” comments Nault. The fact that all members are experienced professionals – engineers and session musicians – has certainly helped LESSER GLOW to accomplish the simplicity that makes this record what it is: Heavy.

“I tried to keep that simplicity in mind during the recording process, don’t over play or worry about shredding to fill space,” adds bass player Scott Conza. “Just as important as choosing when to play, is choosing when not to play.”

Here’s the “Ruined” track listing:

1. Ruined
2. Vacant Throne
3. Tel Meggido
4. Empty Eyes
5. Fall On Mortal Decay
6. Under The Polar Shade

Lesser Glow is:

Alec Rodriguez – vocals
Andrew Nault – guitar
Ben Gram – guitar
Scott Conza – bass
Seth Botos – drums
