ATRAMENTUS: 20 Buck Spin Issues New Audio Clip From Stygian Debut LP + Preorders Posted; Quebec Funeral Doom Band Features Members Of Chthe'ilist, Funebrarum, Gevurah, More

20 Buck Spin has issued preorders and a new audio excerpt from  Stygian , the mammoth debut LP from Longueuil, Québec-based  ATRAMENTUS , as the record nears its release in late August.

 

From the frozen northlands,  ATRAMENTUS  is formed by members of Chthe'ilist, Funebrarum, Gevurah, and more among its ranks. Birthed on a cold winter night in 2012 and during an autumnal sunset in 2013, the cursed tale remained dormant for years, only recently being put to tape so the nameless knight's saga could be told.

 

The band's first album,  Stygian  was recorded, engineered, re-amped, and mixed by Xavier Berthiaume at Studio Tehom in Montreal, mastered by Greg Chandler (Esoteric, Lychgate) at Priory Recording Studios in Birmingham, and is completed with artwork by Mariusz Lewandowski (Atlantean Kodex, Bell Witch, Mizmor) and layout by Chimere Noire. This is a must-hear album for fans of Unholy, Evoken, Worship, Mournful Congregation, Disembowelment, Skepticism, Thergothon, Esoteric, The Ruins Of Beverast, and Morgion.

20 Buck Spin will release  Stygian  on LP, CD, cassette, and digital formats on August 21st. Preorders have been unveiled today at the label webshop  HERE  and Bandcamp  HERE .

 


 
 
Watch for additional audio samples and more to be issued over the weeks ahead.
 
Granted immortality through the gift of the God's sword, the nameless knight eventually witnesses the death of the sun and the end of all life on Earth. Surviving the great deluge, he is left to wander amongst the ruins of a now frozen earth under a sunless sky for eternity, alone and unable to die even by the scorching-cold blizzard winds around him, enduring perpetual physical torture while haunted by the memories of his past life and everyone he once knew buried under miles of ice.
 
Each of the three epic songs contained within differ widely to reflect the changing of autumn to perpetual winter. While adorned in the language of extreme funeral doom and dark ambient soundscape,  ATRAMENTUS  owe further debt to epic doom metal in sound and aesthetic and black metal's anguished ferocity, but always the arc of  ATRAMENTUS  remains bound to the tumultuous melancholy and guttural immensity of extreme doom.  Stygian  is thematically tied, on different timelines, to the themes on Chthe'ilist's latest EP and forthcoming album.
