Today, Greek black metal supergroup  Katavasia  stream the entirety of their highly anticipated second album,  Magnus Venator , at heavily trafficked web-portal   RideIntoGlory.com . Set for international release on September 4th via  Floga Records , hear   Katavasia 's   Magnus Venator  in its entirety exclusively  HERE .

Katavasia   is a Greek black metal band formed in 2014 by members of well-known Greek metal acts such as Varathron, Hail Spirit Noir, Aenaon, Melan Selas, and Agnes Vein. The goal of the alliance was to compose and perform Greek black metal at its finest.

In 2015,   Katavasia   released their debut album,  Sacrilegious Testament , which was highly praised by both media and fans for its dedication to the original Greek BM sound but at the same time offering originality. A 7" EP titled  Daemonic Offering  followed in 2017 to prove, once again, the band's aptitude and hunger for more devilish riffs and engrossing atmosphere.

At long last,   Katavasia   return with their sophomore album,  Magnus Venator . Translated into English as "The Great Hunter," indeed does   Magnus Venator   provide fuel for a frenzy of utterly classic Hellenic black metal, done by the originals (Varathron's Stefan Necroabyssious is again on vocals) and their reverent acolytes alike. Together,  Katavasia  are in their mightiest form here, offering a nine-track/42-minute experience that's equal parts triumph and tragedy, bloodlust and bathos: in short, everything that's so enveloping and eternal about the early '90s Greek black metal wave, but given a refreshingly epic twist. Further underlining those roots, George Emmanuel (Lucifer's Child, ex-Rotting Christ) contributes a guest guitar solo on "Hordes of Oblivion."

Wrathful riffing, bombastic drumming, tons of classic heavy metal influences, and the trademark demonic screams of Stefan Necroabyssious -   Katavasia   have delivered a new "old' classic with  Magnus Venator !

Hear all of it for yourself exclusively   HERE , courtesy of RideIntoGlory.com. Preorder info for the physical formats can be found   HERE  at   Floga Records ' webshop, while the digital can be preordered   HERE  at   Katavasia 's Bandcamp. Cover and tracklisting are as follows:
