August 20, 2021, will see Swedish old school death metal act, DAEMONICUS, return with their third studio album, entitled Eschaton, on Black Lion Records. It’s the band’s first album in nine long years.
DAEMONICUS burst into the extreme and death metal scene in 2006, with several demo EPs and two highly acclaimed full length records to date, the four- piece also took the stages by storm and toured with acts such as CHRIST AGONY and GROTESKH. Several line-up changes may have hit the band hard, but did not stop founding members PO Wester and Jörgen Persson to continously writing song material. With a new and strong line-up backed by bassist Martin Pudas and David Ekevärn on drums, this summer DAEMONICUS will return with their most confident and brutal work to date: Eschaton features nine razor-sharp and blistering tracks, showcasing a crushing blend of modern and old school death metal sound, yet it remains true to DAEMONICUS‘ core at the same time as progressing both as musicians and as a band. While the record marks the beginning of a new era for them, DAEMONICUS have recorded a masterpiece of Swedish death metal, and one that will prove to stand the test of time.
Give ear, as they just unleashed the album opening track of Eschaton, alongside a brand new lyric video for ‘To Poison Everything’! Watch the clip here:
“To Poison Everything is the opening track from our concept album that is Eschaton. A story that takes the listener through all the horrid events that man has caused one another in the name of religion thoughout the years,” the band comments. “Starting off with the summoning of a higher power to nourish humanities need to believe in something bigger than themselves. Religion manifests in the shape of ‘The Demon’ and the story lets the listener witness the events through it’s eyes.”
Eschaton was mixed and mastered by Ronnie Björnström at Enhanced Audio Productions, and will be released on August 20, 2021 through Black Lion Records. You can pre order album here.
