Astrophobos – Swedish Black Metal Trio Announce New Album “Corpus”
Share New Track “Utrotning” Via Invisible Oranges

Swedish black metal trio Astrophobos will release their third studio full-length album “Corpus” on November 12 via Triumvirate Records with worldwide distribution through Sound Pollution.

The follow-up to the band’s second album “Malice of Antiquity”, is not just their new studio album, it’s also a cross-disciplinary collaboration spanning over several years where sculpture, photography and music intermingles to explore themes of impermanence, death and decay. Teaming up with artists Lisa Wallert and Morgan Norman, the band ventured into these concepts, taking inspiration from their work to write both music and lyrics.

The album was mixed and mastered by Marco Mastrobueno (FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, HOUR OF PENANCE) at Kick Recording Studios, and features session drums by Simon Samuelsson (ex-OFERMOD) as well as guest vocals by Elisabetta Marchetti (INNO, ex-RITI OCCULTI). Pre-orders are now available at this location.

The leading single “Utrotning” is now playing at Invisible Oranges, who commented “Astrophobos package everything you’d expect from black metal – ballistic blast beats, vicious tremolo picking, and necrosis-causing vocals – into a skin-tight melodic offering. Instead of orchestrating an instrumental maelstrom where every instrument clobbers each other, Astrophobos are synchronous with each other, shaping the ripping and tearing into a greater musical cohesion between the three band members.”
