Seance Records announces October 12th as the worldwide release date for Crowned’s “Vacuous Spectral Silence” debut. The following press release was issued about the album:
“A cloaked trinity, Crowned’s ‘Vacuous Spectral Silence’ is Australian black metal created under night’s transcendental veil with intelligence, subtlety, and abundant atmosphere, an austere opus traversing life, death, and infinity.
“A new rising force in the Australian underground creating atmospheric black metal for fans of Burzum, Wolves in the Throne Room, Mayhem, Drudkh, Abigor, Summoning, Midnight Odyssey, and Spire, the silence of ages past is broken by Crowned’s spectral choir.
“Their murky veil of atmospheric black metal echoes like the chant of choral ghosts in forgotten crypts, channeling a haunting resonance of the dark ages as creeping shadows enshroud, light scarcely breaking upon the cold stone where a Vacuous Spectral Silence lingers eternally.”
The album’s artwork can be viewed below, and the track listing is:
2. Journey to the Cross-roads
