“Enthrall To The Void Of Bliss” (Album Stream Premiere)

Invisible Oranges premiered the full album stream of Enthrall to the Void of Bliss.  Listen below and read Kelly Kettering’s writeup.

When I picture the black magic cult that rocket scientist Jack Parsons and Scientology creator L. Ron Hubbard facilitated together in ’40’s LA (yes, that was a thing) at the Pasadena Lodge, this Aevangelist [Editorial note: IO’s own Jon Rosenthal performs in the live incarnation of Aevangelist] album is exactly the kind of music I bet they were listening to during satanic ceremonies.

Their 4th full length and first for the label 20 Buck Spin, Enthrall To The Void Of Bliss is also the first record Aevangelist has fully released domestically in the US. Not just blackened death metal, this record has a darkly spirited feeling that isn’t easy to shake.

Ævangelist are a faaaaantasticly heavy blackened death metal band that I have been digging for a while now. The band hails from the States and they absolutely crush. They are going to release their new album Enthrall To The Void Of Bliss early next month and I am so stoked to announce that we here at American Aftermath are premiering a killer new track titled “Gatekeeper’s Scroll” and I want to inform you that it will destroy you. Dude, Ævangelist are so sick.

Check out the track premier here.

The portal to the Abysscape is about to open again. Or in more prosaic terms, a new Ævangelist album is almost upon us. Entitled Enthrall To The Void Of Bliss, it will be released by 20 Buck Spin on October 9 in North America and October 23 in Europe. Today we are fortunate to host the premiere of the album’s first advance track, a transfixing torment called “Levitating Stones.”

Writhes In The Murk Review + Full Stream at Cvlt Nation

Read the full review and listen to the stream at Cvlt Nation.

Writhes In The Murk is without a doubt one of the densest albums released so far this year. It indulges in noise and abstract heaviness without forsaking their chops. The instrumentation spirals into diabolic flurries that sound like a cross between Mr. Bungle and Deathspell Omega. The more black metal element slither along side the denser climate of death metal, but this project has now transcended both both genres. They reach out to harshness of every scope, even touching open an industrial abrasiveness. On the title track they utilize a sample of a girl talking which fades in and out of the din, almost taking the place of vocals, which are relegated to mutters and snarls out from the shadows. Chances are if you are reading this, you like your metal dark and unconventional. If that is the case, this could be the best album of the year that you miss out on if you don’t check them out. 

The Only Grave streaming at Noisey

Taking pages from bands like Incantation, Portal and others, Ævangelist use death metal as their primary vehicle to launch their nightmare, but dip into dark ambient, black metal and power electronics to seal in even more horror. Their latest effort is Writhes in the Murk, their third LP due via Hells Headbangers Records on 10/21, just in time to scare the shit out of every kid in a Halloween costume. Stream the new track “The Only Grave” for the first time below.

Præternigma premier- No Clean Singing

Listen to the premier and read the review at No Clean Singing.

 

Horrific tearing noises accompanied the sundering of space-time, and through the rent in the dimensional membrane we received the latest transmission from the void-faring entity known asÆvangelist. Today we share with you this new hymn, as we deliver the premiere of “Præternigma”.

Although the band’s album, Omen Ex Simulacra  emerged from the Abysscape only last fall, Debemur Morti Productions will soon be releasing a new full-length named Ævangelist III – Writhes in the Murk. It’s shrouded in striking cover art  created by Andrzej Masianis, who also painted the cover for the last Ævangelist album.

From its inception, the music of Ævangelist has been devoted to the creation of mental imagery, emotional response, and physical sensation. The dense atmospheric sounds resist classification, as if a cyclone had scoured the musical landscape and caught up within its chaotic spinning mass the broken shards of death metal, black metal, dark ambient, industrial metal, powerviolence, and black noise (and the new album also includes saxophones and cello). Though guided by the same philosophy, the third Ævangelist hymnal is their most varied and immersive work yet, as the band employ new techniques for exerting their grasp on the imaginations of listeners.

“Præternigma” is the new album’s third track. There is something lost in listening to it without having been exposed to what comes before and what comes after, yet even standing alone it exerts a powerful hold on the senses. The music is dense and enveloping, with writhing, grinding riffs generating a moving mass of ominous sound, with eerie electronic noises and floating synthesizer ambience adding to the atmosphere of otherworldly menace. As the song unfolds, the storm of sound is segmented and altered by changing rhythms as the drumbeats move from rolling thunder, to bursts of jackhammer bludgeoning, to tumbling somersaults, to a booming processional march.

There’s a slow, descending chord progression moving within this bleak cacophony, as if a message of doom is being repeated until there’s no mistaking its import. The vocals also seem to be proclaiming some horrific litany, voiced in an array of terrible utterances, from subterranean gutturals to rising howls to despairing spoken words. You listen to the song and your mind’s eye sees disturbing vistas, but you can’t look away.

Ævangelist consists of Ascaris (vocals, saxophones, cello) and Matron Thorn (guitars, bass, drums, ambience/FX, noise, and vocals on “Harken To the Flesh”). Writhes In the Mark is now available for pre-order (both digipack CD and 12″ vinyl) at this location. The track list is as follows:

1. Hosanna
2. The Only Grave
3. Præternigma
4. Disquiet
5. Ælixir
6. Harken to the Flesh
7. Halo of Lamented Glory
8. Writhes in the Murk
