New York City occult black metal collective Teloch Vovin have premiered a new track from their upcoming EP, Further Down The Tunnel, over at No Clean Singing. Titled “Adoration/Vexation”, the eight minute track features raw, blistering black metal that cycles between frostbitten tremolo picking, ripping thrash and technical savagery. Paul Delaney of Black Anvil also makes a guest appearance on the track. The band commented on the new tune:

“Though it is one song, this track has two completely different segments. Each segment expresses its own concept which stands in opposition to its counterpart. ‘Adoration‘ being about adoring, loving or worship. While within ‘Vexation‘ is a culling, a curse.”

Stream the track now.

Further Down The Tunnel will be released on September 23. Pre-order here.

WINDFAERER Release “Finisterra” Lyric Video

Windfaerer_2

Folkloric black metal outfit Windfaerer have premiered a lyric video for their new track “Finisterra” over at Heavy Blog is Heavy. The gloom-laden track, which will appear on the group’s forthcoming full-length, Tenebrosum, is full of melodic, virtuosic riffs that are drenched in melancholic atmospheres. The band comments on the new track:

“The lyrics to ‘Finisterra’ are about discovery and seclusion. What we learn about history is only the recorded account, but the truth is eventually unearthed through the passing of centuries. The lyrics are inspired by legends of medieval Basque fishermen who sailed across the Atlantic Ocean to North America, always returning with cod and never revealing the secret origin of their bounty.”

Check out the eight-minute jam after the break.

Tenebrosum will be released on September 22.
