In Greek mythology, Tartarus is the deep abyss that is used as a dungeon of torment and suffering for the wicked and as the prison for the Titans.
Such a description is apt for the atmosphere created by the powerful new Evocatus single Tartarus, the titled track off their forthcoming melodic metal masterpiece, due out October 30th.
The new track see's the Newcastle shredders push their skills of composition to new boundaries, resulting in a dynamic journey that begins in a sombre tone but builds steadily into a earth-shattering death-march.
Whether you're after riffs, grooves or crushing layers of metal, Evocatus have got you covered with this song.
Says the band about the forthcoming release, " Path to Tartarus is a melodic death metal collection of stories about ancient gods, bloody battles and a look into the mind of battle-hardened warriors. An epic crescendo to the final destination of Tartarus.
"The album consists of hectic riffs, blistering solos and crushing vocals whilst allowing for melodic harmonies and symphonic layers and interludes creating an immersive and rich atmosphere. A ten-song, sixty-three-minute journey that will leave you wanting more!”
Having shared the stage with the likes of Kalmah , Psycroptic and Cattle Decapitation (among others) Evocatus are yet another example of the explosion of quality melodic death metal roaring out from down under, with Path To Tartarus a testament to their quality.
