We’re excited to join forces again with French satanic black metal horde Noavae Militiae, as we prepare then imminent release for the first time ever on analog formats of ”Topheth”, their brand new third full-length LP (released on CD in late 2020 via Goathorned Productions), this time presented to you via Sentient Ruin as a glorious limited edition three-sided double LP with etched D-side and on a limited edition cassette tape release.
On the hideous opus the French satanic legion further refine and sharpen their mortal aural blade, slicing reality into shreds to reveal a massive gaping aural wound that oozes and festers with the abhorrent virulence of complete armageddon. In its boundless glorification of destruction and inhumanity, “Topheth” gives orthodox satanism its most arrogant and intransigent voice, weaving an impenetrable fog of artillery-like drum machines, face-taring screams, and walls of deformed fretwork annihilation to trace the ravaging trajectories of complete torment and abandon. The negativity-encompassing album once again assumes a sinister ritualistic and liturgical splendor as well as the iconic theological and biblical delineations that have made this band so recognizable and unique through a marvelous juxtaposition of atmosphere and ferocity, threading a diseased tapestry of inverted sermons and perverse summonings to serve as textural backdrop to its primordial wrath of complete black metal incineration.
“Topheth” vinyl and tapes are scheduled for an official January 22, 2021 street date, along with a release via all main digital streaming platforms, and all physical formats are currently pre-ordeable via our web shop or Bandcamp page.
