Debemur Morti Productions presents Age Of Capricorn, the seventh studio full-length from one of Polish black metal act, ARKONA. Announcing the devastating new album for December release, the lead single “Alone Among Wolves” has been issued alongside the cover art, track listing, preorders, and more.
Formed in 1993, ARKONAis one of the forerunning and lead black metal acts to come from Poland, the band continually ascending to the next level with every album. The band now delivers the follow-up to their 2016-released Debemur Morti debut Lunaris with the frighteningly focused Age Of Capricorn, a razorwire blast of mesmerizing intensity. The band’s emphatic seventh album builds a new world from their distinctive sonic elements: nihilistic rage, strident power, masterfully integrated filmic orchestration, and vicious slabs of whiteout riffing where emotive melodies are beaten into corruption.
Recorded, mixed, and mastered at Impressive Art Studio, Age Of Capricorn is blessed with a crisp production that foregrounds a jackhammer relentlessness of near-industrial proportions, leaving the listener gasping for air as they are bludgeoned into inverted cathedrals of sound. ARKONA is where the lightless spirits of second and third wave black metal assume modern form in an all too relatable maelstrom of degradation and disquiet, alienation and anger, hypnosis and horror. The album is completed with cover art and layout by Church Of Chaos Multimedia. Fans of Kriegsmaschine, Dark Funeral, Blaze Of Perdition, Aosoth, and Inferno, take note of ARKONA.
