Contorted and anguished. Blissed-out and serene. Spasmodic impulses forcing irregular lurches and twitches. There are infinite shades and varieties of death, and yet its certainty and mystery terrify the human soul to its core. Anatomia breathes in the foul stench produced by this final state of human existence and spews it back at the listener. The band?s Death Doom sound captures perfectly the cold immobile grip of mortal expiration.
Although it has been just one year since the release of "...For Chaos, Obscurity, and Desolation...," Blasphemophagher return with their third full-length album. Entitled "The III Command of the Absolute Chaos," this new album demonstrates the band's further refinement of their craft. Featuring new artwork by the inimitable Paolo "Madman" Girardi and a guest appearance by Pete Helmkamp, this album carries on in the tradition established by Blasphemophagher on their first two albums.
One of the first records NWN! released was MORBOSIDAD's magnificent blasphemic self-titled opus and the relationship between NWN! and MORBOSIDAD has endured for more than a decade. Although MORBOSIDAD formed in 1993, the band only released two demos before the death of drummer Yegros forced the band into a torpor that lasted for several years until Tomas Stench reassembled a line-up to record what would become the band?s debut album. Recorded in 1998 and originally released in 2000 on Quadrivium, it was only available on CD and featured garish, unsuitable cover artwork. Within a year of beginning NWN! Productions, YK Insulter approached the band about re-issuing the album on vinyl with new artwork.
Die Hard edition on "coke bottle" clear vinyl with an A2 poster, gatefold jacket, 36?x36? cloth tapestry, and two silver foil stickers.
It is rare that a band lives up to the promise of its initial recordings by the time it releases a debut LP. A band that releases a well-conceived demo or EP and immediately becomes engulfed in hype is often doomed to fail. Sacriphyx are one of those few bands for which the debut LP is represents both a continuation of the trajectory laid out in the band?s previous recordings and also a substantial step forward. Some years ago, NWN! received the ?Lone Pine? demo CDr from the band.
