Moribund Records is honored to announce the return of scene legend Xaphan (SUMMON & MASOCHIST) with a new Cult pact!
Joy Division sacrificed by Slayer, Pink Floyd mutilated by Watain… make whatever abstract comparisons you wish – DARK PSYCHOSIS have crafted and perfected a unique sound all their own. Lead by 30+ year scene veteran Xaphan, best known as the singer/guitarist/songwriter from both Legendary Michigan bands SUMMON and MASOCHIST, DARK PSYCHOSIS creates a genre-bending new sound. Xaphan incorporates elements from indie rock, psychedelia, classic heavy metal, darkwave, post-punk, thrash, and, of course, black metal… a little bit of everything for lovers of truly unique and dark music!
When asked about his return to the Moribund Records Cult, Xaphan exclaimed, “I am excited to be working with Moribund Cult again and look forward to making more darkness together. Moribund has always supported my dark endeavors and it is great to be back! Much more darkness to come, and hell will follow!” Cultists, be ‘forewarned’ – if you haven’t already gathered, this is not your typical Black Metal. It is beyond your expectations and well above the creative calling of any modern artists, an absolutely uncompromising vision of musical darkness is what will be found through the compositions of DARK PSYCHOSIS!
Not only is this US Black Metal maestro ready to release his 3rd album and Moribund Records Cult debut under the banner of DARK PSYCHOSIS, Xaphan is also immediately prepared to raise the curtain with 2 digital singles issued prior to the album release date. Each single will contain an exclusive “B-side” bonus track not available on the full album! But first… a few words from Moribund’s Old Goat – “With unquenchable Flames of honor, I am personally stoked with the fires of Hell to have DARK PSYCHOSIS joining the Moribund Cult. Xaphan and I have worked together for decades through his prior Cult bands, who to this day remain some of my All-Time fave bands (and Moribund Releases), Masochist and Summon. With DARK PSYCHOSIS we will not only revive those Eternal Flames but lead the legions into new territories as the sound of DARK PSYCHOSIS is so much “broader”, all whilst not sacrificing any of the True Cult-ness that has always made Xaphan’s music and art SOO TIMELESS \m/.” – Odin “The Old Goat” Thompson, Moribund Records Label Manager
