Polish black metal ensemble OUTRE are proud to unveil the closing track from their much-anticipated first album, “Ghost Chants”. Featuring the tortured throat of Stawrogin as a session vocalist, the song masterfully rounds out the album’s thirty-five minute duration with majestic confidence, unfolding from ambience and swelling chords into a turbulent blend of blast beats and unsettling guitar melodies. Mgła’s M. has done a stellar job in the production, perfectly capturing the record’s dark and eerie tone.
No Clean Singing comment on the track, saying: “Arrival” is black metal, but enfolded within the music are elements of doom, death, and sludge, as well as the kind of avant-garde air that may put you in mind of Deathspell Omega. It’s as interesting as it is potent, and a fine precursor to an album that will be well worth hearing in its entirety.”

After suffering a setback with the loss of their vocalist Andrzej Nowak, black metal group OUTRE have unveiled a track from their upcoming album recorded with participation of Stawrogin (Odraza / Massemord). A twisted and ripping track drawing as much from French bands such as Deathspell Omega as Outre’s compatriots Behemoth, it will surely draw the attention of those with a finely-tuned black metal radar.
The band comments:
“We are now finishing the production of our debut LP “Ghost Chants”. With minor delay caused by our vocalist leaving, the vocals recording session are now heading to an end. We asked Stawrogin for help, who in our opinion is one of the best throats in Polish black metal underground, and so far we are more than satisfied with the effects of his work. A promo track “Chant 3. – The Fall” gives a sneak peak of what you can expect on our debut long player. We gave our best to make this record as much essentional and intense as possible.”

“The oracles will speak and the dead will whisper their canticles…”
This fall will see the OUTRE’s full length debut album Ghost Chants emerging through Third Eye Temple in cooperation with Essential Purification Records and Godz Ov War Productions. Cover artwork by Robert A. von Ritter can be seen below.
This time OUTRE will stray from the path paved by previous output, the EP and a split with Thaw, in favor of more aggressive yet compact forms. Ghost Chants contains mighty slab of what can be called modern Black Metal in vein of Deathspell Omega, Blut Aus Nord or Omega Massif.
Ghost Chants will appear as a regular CD as well as vinyl LP. Official release date will be confirmed in the first half of September.
Still it is not the end of the revelations to come.The dawn of next year will bring split output shared by OUTRE and ENTROPIA, containing exclusively premiere material. It will be by all means exceptional, but the details will be revealed in an appropriate moment…
