SEMPITERNAL DUSK Join Forces with Decibel for Premiere of ‘Cenotaph of Defectuous Creation’ Album

Death/Doom titans SEMPITERNAL DUSK have joined forces with Decibel Magazine for the exclusive premiere of forthcoming album album Cenotaph of Defectuous CreationClick to listen at the following link:

SEMPITERNAL DUSK return with their second full length of primitive death metal doom entitled Cenotaph of Defectuous Creation. Five tracks of pummeling mid-tempo death played with intent and a disdain for modern ‘death metal’ cliche. Recorded and mixed at The Autopsy Room (DRAWN AND QUARTERED, SPLATTERHOUSE, ALDEBARAN) and mastered by Dredged Oblivion. The murky production of the previous full-length has been dialed back in favor of a bolder and sharper sound, while retaining the despondent atmosphere. Featuring new artwork by the unholy D. Desecrator.  

Cenotaph of Defectuous Creation will be released September 27 on CD, vinyl LP, and digital formats via Dark Descent Records.


“Cenotaph of Defectuous Creation is a Death Doom Monster that is going to destroy the underground!”
– Cvlt Nation

“Cenotaph of Defectuous Creation is a familiar but exciting album. Everything that makes a quality death metal album—reverberating vocals, descending riffs and just enough melody—is here.”
– Decibel

“Deeply terrifying death-doom magic with a wholly singular approach. It carries an essential element of doom in its core, but wears the hideously gaudy garments of death metal’s rage and pummeling violence.”
– Invisible Oranges

“A transformative era for Sempiternal Dusk, one that sees them aggravatingly tease the more critical hand of their craft. With this latest installment they have gone from a mere tooth-ache, to a virulent cavity within the necropolis, accelerating the putrefaction during domain construction.” (9.6/10)
– MetalBite

“Crushing yet atmospheric death metal that finds ways to get under your skin. With lengthier, brooding passages that give off a sense of unease and fast paced attacks that strike when you’re just starting to fall into a haze, this is an album worth spending some in-depth time with.” (9/10)
– Metal Trenches

“An essential work for lovers of classic DM who need those blackish sonic landscapes.” (8.5/10)
– Queens of Steel

“SEMPITERNAL DUSK have created a sound that is monumentally engrossing.” (8/10)
– Metal Temple

“Sempiternal Dusk are among the most fearsome audial domestic terrorists, with their devilishly delightful monochromatic sound and deafening display of ruthlessness.”
– ViaOmega Magazine

“I recommend this barbarism. Enjoyment guaranteed!”
– Dargedik Rock Metal Webzine

“Monument to Death/Doom.”
– Metal Utopia


JH – Guitars
VB – Guitars
TC – Drums/Vocals
