Today we’re more than proud to announce the 3rd. album of barbaric Death/Thrash Metal lunatics RAPTURE from gloomy Greece. Entitled „MALEVOLENT DEMISE INCARNATION“
But let’s start with the badass cover artwork and later come back to the album title. Concepted by the band and illustrated by the Greek Tattoo artist Konstantinos a.k.a. Chaostouched.
His mainly work is tattooing of course but from time to time he’s responsible for great cover art, for example the previous RAPTURE album “Paroxysm of Hatred” or for the last VILE APPARITION album (Memento Mori). His art is also a part of Masterpieces/ Best Metal Artworks of 2019. Great artist creates great art for great bands !
Let’s continue to the album title: MALEVOLENT DEMISE INCARNATION
Why this title and what does it means ? The band explains:
“In this extreme blend of symbolism and grim realism that defines us, Death is consolidated as thy only divine power of this world. Without faith at fake prophets and impoverished gods, Death is the single one power which stands beyond human understanding and reach, and cannot be defeated. For he always stands one step ahead, as the orgasm of the notion of life, which he dethrones. The woeful human dynasty, during its entire futile and ignorant-driven course, was searching for one and only thing. Perfection. However, where perfection thrives, humanity declines and vanishes. Thus, the human breed constitutes as a perverted dissonance of nature and creation, which eventually, will be eliminated and ravaged by the notion of creation itself. Therefore, if thy only divine power is Death, the perfection and deification that humans always pursued, is none other than their own total annihilation. We few, will reach deification, as we consist the total, undisputed, indecent, grim and triumphant,
MALEVOLENT DEMISE INCARNATION.”
