Blood Harvest Records is proud to present Chasm of Aeons , a special four-way split mini-album featuring Cryptic Shift , Replicant , Inoculation , and Astral Tomb . The split shall be released on November 27th internationally on CD and 12" vinyl formats.
Featuring four tracks for a total of 19 minutes, Chasm of Aeons is a quick 'n' concise slab of sci-fi death metal sorcery. Cryptic Shift are up first with the aptly titled "Cosmic Dreams." Hot off the MASSIVE critical acclaim for Visitations from Enceladus , their Blood Harvest debut album from earlier this year, these still-blooming British stalwarts here effortlessly create a maelstrom of mesmerizing math and hacking-into-the-mainframe horror, all threaded together with classy (and cosmic) soloing.
Replicant follow with another aptly titled track, "Unbeing." Here, these on-the-ascent Americans build a dense 'n' dissonant monolith of deep-space dread.
Inoculation are next with "Xerthaneus," which is just as tricky and treacherous as that title promises: super-dizzying cosmic DEATH done with insane precision, and sure to mangle your mind.
Closing out proceedings are Astral Tomb
, who verily create their moniker with the slamming 'n' sluicing "Transcendence From the Mortal Plane Guided by a Familiar Phantasm." And their track literally sounds like that, and more: angular, skronking, and shit-heavy!
Completed by stunningly evocative cover art, Chasm of Aeons
is bound to be the definitive word on death metal that's cosmic, sci-fi, and mathematically beyond. Enter at your own peril!
