It will be called the Concrescence Of The Sophia and will drop this summer.
Bridging their latest LP, 2011′s acclaimed The Book Of Kings, and their next impending full-length opus to see release sometime in the overcast years ahead, Concrescence Of The Sophia begins with its title track, which boasts more than 20 minutes of expertly delivered but utterly disconsolate, plodding metal, where “the weight of all waters, and the mass of all stars” exacts a heavy toll in the timeless pursuit of mystical knowledge.
The monumental main riff onerously giving foundation to Damon Good’s ardently howling leads and sepulchral lament.
Acoustic interludes offering only temporary respite to doom’s forgone conclusion. On the B-side, “Silence Of The Passed,” at a mere nine minutes in length nonetheless foretells how vast is the agency of doom.
Concrescence Of The Sophia will be released June 24.
