Poland’s death/black metal kings Azarath are ready to move forward with new music. On April 7th, the band will return with their most furious sonic statement to date, a new album titled “In Extremis”. The eerie painting that adorns the album’s cover was made by Marta Promińska (Hypnagogic Painting). Meaning “at the point of death” or “under extreme circumstances” in Latin, “In Extremis” is yet another apex reached by Azarath. The effort arrives six long years after its predecessor, “Blasphemers’ Maledictions” (2011), and places the band back at the fore of the genre, with strong ties to the group’s early cult albums. Black as a night and dense as tar, “In Extremis” offers a whirlwind of chaotic currents ready to overwhelm.
Recommended for fans of Behemoth, Belphegor, Krisiun, Hate, Vader.
