Pennsylvania’s own unsung monsters of experimental black metal/death metal, VEILBURNER, have released the first single from their forthcoming 3rd full-length, “The Obscene Rite“. Today’s new single, “Eucharist of the Breathing Abyss“, drags you into a nightmare realm of piercing torment and bizarre horror.
You can listen to “Eucharist of the Breathing Abyss” below.
At first glance, a jarring exercise in madness, “Eucharist of the Breathing Abyss” is depraved yet intricately crafted black/death for fans of groups such as Deathspell Omega, Akercocke, Dødheimsgard, and Behemoth. VEILBURNER‘s “The Obscene Rite“ will be released on Friday, September 30th.
As the first single from their third album in three years, “Eucharist of the Breathing Abyss” is an interesting showcase of the group’s ability to meld the more aggressive and unhinged feeling of “The Three Lightbearers” with the more progressively inclined and ever more experimental sound displayed on Noumenon, creating a hybridized sound that’s the best of both worlds.
Nocleanvocals.com on the song:
“Taking in the unnerving madness the track throws at you conjures up horrific feelings of otherworldly Lovecraftian creatures attacking one’s mind and soul. But somehow, it’s an enjoyable attack on the senses, one that keeps drawing me back into its creepy-yet-catchy depths.”
Physical copies will be available for purchase and pre-order soon through CDBaby.
Digital pre-orders for “The Obscene Rite” are now live through Bandcamp for the obscenely low price of $5 here.
