Brilliant Emperor Records is proud to announce the release of Mammon’s Throne self-titled second album, which is set to be released on April 1st on vinyl and digital download.
After relentless touring in support of their 2020 debut album “Forward Unto Flame”, the Melbourne-based doom-metal quintet have established themselves as a force to be reckoned within the Australian live music scene and now are ready to return with their most heavy and dark material to date.
Mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege Mastering Studio, the new album is comprised of five new songs where haunting funeral doom melodies meet crushing sludge and death grooves before taking flight in searing blackened crescendos all accompanied by a chilling and diverse range of vocal styles and a furious drumming assault. Pre-orders are now available at this location.
The album’s opening song and leading single “Return us to The Stars” is now playing at Doomed and Stoned, who had this to say about the new album “Mammon’s Throne is a wicked genre melter, with elements of funeral doom, death, black, and post-metal in the vein of Serpentine Path, Graves at Sea, and Unearthly Trance.”
“We wrote “Return us to The Stars” to tell the tale of a ritual being performed.” Comments the band “We set it amidst the backdrop of a desolate desert, largely devoid of life and water, where the only seas are the endless sands that lay before weary emissaries of ancient, forgotten gods. Every song on the album is about some sort of ending. Be it the end of a life, a kingdom, humanity, or an entire world, and “Return us to the Stars” is a last ditch and terrible ritual to ancient gods in the hope to ascend to the stars and leave a dying world.
We structured the song to slowly build from a somber funeral march towards the blackened ferocity of the final eldritch and chaotic moments of the ritual. The interlude where clean guitars take focus and the rhythm section stops, symbolizes the eerie moments of being in the eye of a great and powerful storm of energy.”
