We’re honored to welcome into the family Greek black/death metal legion Anticreation for whom we’ve prepared the release of their immense debut album, “From the Dust of Embers”, in collaboration with Nuclear Winter Records, also from Greece.
A song from the work has been unveiled by Decibel Magazine via an official music video premiere for the title track which you can find HERE, with the prized metal magazine stating that “If you’re in the mood for unrelenting brutality mixed with abysmal black metal, Anticreation are just the ticket” and that “The combination of slamming death riffs and black metal flavor and depth has a mesmerizing effect on the listener.“
On “From the Dust of Embers” Anticreation emerge from the abysses of hell with a thirty-four minute aural declaration of war toward the insignificance of all terrain things. Monstrous walls of low end dissonance churn and fume like sprawling hellfires, while dark ambient and ritualistic debris metastasizes around the telluric instrumental sections creating a grandiose and enveloping hellscape shrouded in darkness and death. No newcomers to their scene, the cryptic duo of Necro and Noctus who form the core of Anticreation have been sailing the black seas of Greece’s most uncompromising underground for literal decades, with Necro in particular having spent the last twenty years forging hellbent steel in such miscreant greek black metal entities as Burial hordes, Enshadowed, and Merciless Crucifixion, among others. Anticreation is a vessel unto fusing Necro’s and Noctus’ long running expertise in black metal and the duo’s interest and fascination in the bleakest and most otherworldly forms of dark death metal, namely that one conceived in various waves by bastions of the genre like Immolation, Portal, Pseudogod and Teitanblood, resulting in their debut offering “From the Dust of Embers”, an imposing dark death metal best levitating with an immense aura of complete ruin and inevitability.
“From the Dust of Embers” will be released July 8 2022 on LP, CD, MC, and digital formats in collaboration with Nuclear Winter Records handling the European release.
