Yoth Iria, the brainchild of Greek black metal veterans Jim Mutiliator and The Magus, have unveiled the artwork and track listing of their upcoming debut album. Entitled “As The Flame Withers” it is planned for a December 2020 release via Pagan Records.
The artwork to “As The Flame Withers” was completed by Harnasash Singh.
The band have also revealed the song titles which will comprise the album: Hermetical Code, The Luciferian, The Red Crown turns Black, Tyrants, Yoth Iria, The Mantis, The Great Hunter, Unborn-Undead-Eternal.
Yoth Iria‘s music is an amalgam of the influences and visions of its creators. Dark, diabolical, emotional, powerful and majestic. A fresh look into ’90s Greek occult black metal with a nostalgia of the past and a look into the future.
The band explain:
“The album is deeply rooted in the glorious past but with a new advanced perspective maintaining the sinister feeling combined with a dark atmosphere and the fury of Hell itself!
Each song is a black diamond! THE LORD IS ASCENDING! THE PRINCE IS AFLAME! YOTH IRIA!!“
The band are working on the album at the famous Pentagram Studio with George Emmanuel (Rotting Christ, Septicflesh, Lucifer’s Child, Acherontas etc).
