Occult black metal tyrants ASCENSION are now streaming their highly anticipated new album, ‘The Dead of the World’ at Stereogum. ‘The Dead of the World’ will be released on January 27, 2015 and is available for pre-order here. Track list and album art can be seen below.
Regarding the album, the band comments: “‘The Dead of the World’ has become an album about death, an album about the dark gods that lay hidden and hungry beyond the stars, an album about those who have turned their face from god, an album for those who are dead to the world, those who are ready to crush everything that you may consider worthwhile, peaceful and righteous to dust, it has become a sermon for the dead and a prayer for salvation. ‘The Dead of the World’ is a record about those who stand in the shadows of this world, yet in their very own kingdom.”
ASCENSION’s ‘The Dead of the World’ follows the band’s ambitious debut, ‘Consolamentum’ (2010). Through rare festival appearances and a penchant for orthodox black metal in both aural and visual presentation, ASCENSION has instantly become a staple in the European and North American black metal underground. The German band has played prestigious festivals such as Maryland Deathfest, Deathkult Open Air, Hellfest and more, on the backs of a well received EP, demo, and formidable full-length.
