Barren Void Records – with official distribution by Lavadome Productions – sets April 12th as the international release date for the highly anticipated second album of Italy’s Totalitarian, Bloodlands.
Following their 2017 debut, Italy’s Totalitarian returns with a malicious new record entitled Bloodlands, which embarks on a soul-corrupting journey through unprecedented violence and the most hideous deeds the so-called humankind has ever been able to commit itself to.
Bloodlands will drag you through the ruins of Warsaw, across the fields of Treblinka, into the marshes of Belarus, or to the death pits of Babi Yar. Sense it: the terror, the darkness without glare, when despair and anguish served just as an overture to a deadly end. Grasp it: the paralyzing touch of immaculate fear, the danger which can’t be seen, yet its menacing presence would define eternity with the taste of ashes and blood left behind.
Musically, Bloodlands represents a relentless black metal tour de force, especially when compared to the debut album De Arte Tragoediae Divinae from 2017. As cliché as it may sound, the evil is one, but its faces are many – that’s the truth. Bear in mind the bleakness and the everpresent nihilism will always be maintained in anything Totalitarian will ever create.
Bloodlands follows the seething poison of humiliation and annihilation encrypted in the collective consciousness of man forever. The wounds of humanity are bleeding in the 6 Gospels of Extermination.
