Debemur Morti Productions put the spotlight on ‘Poisoning The Air With Abysmal Presences‘, the second unleashed song from the coming ANARKHON album “Phantasmagorical Personification Of The Death Temple“. As the name of the composition suggests, ‘Poisoning The Air With Abysmal Presences’ is a seven minute long Death Metal trip through the mysterious depths of the earth. Vocalist and guitarist Aron comments on the intentions behind this track:
“This song was the last one to be created for the album, I didn’t have any specific band or album in my mind while I was creating it, I just wanted the most terrifying and evil atmosphere possible when it comes to the riffs. Crafting the song a little slower helped to achieve the goal. Lyrically speaking, the title can be interpreted as a metaphor for the “forces” being released into the atmosphere, so it would be a description of ourselves returning from the abyss after a hiatus of seven years ready to poison this “new world” full of false morals and false goodness. Almost everything is done or said in a way that can be “accepted” and it is tried to avoid at all costs the infamous “culture of cancellation”. This fear even reached the Extreme Metal scene, the result was catastrophic with artists afraid to express themselves freely and giving in to the current modus operandi just to gain some kind of “fleeting notoriety” on the internet. This world, this kind of world needs to be “poisoned” by the most hideous things from the abyss, that’s my musical vision behind this track.”
‘Poisoning The Air With Abysmal Presences‘ can now be streamed on the Bandcamp page of the band.
The first harvest of the collaboration between ANARKHON and Debemur Morti Productions will be a vinyl version of the latest album “Phantasmagorical Personification Of The Death Temple“, which was originally released on CD via Soul Erazer Records in September 2020. The fourth long player may be described as a killer compendium of cryptic, Lovecraftian old school Death Metal – each and every enigmatic riff possessed with the majesty of arcane knowledge, every rotted atmosphere and bludgeoning rhythm on point, each otherworldly vocal inflection a coffin dragged into ancient depths. Seven compositions force the listener into the abyss and make sure that there is no return:
01. Dimensional Incantation
02. Far Beyond Blood & Death
03. Assuming The Grotesque Form Of The Nightmare
04. Ancient Tomb
05. Phantasmagorical Personification Of The Death Temple
06. Asymmetrical Chaos Spitting Stellar Graves
07. Poisoning The Air With Abysmal Presences
Kleber Hastur – Guitars

“Phantasmagorical Personification Of The Death Temple” will be released on vinyl on March 26th via Debemur Morti Productions. Pre-orders are possible from now on via the label’s EU, US, and Bandcamp shops.
ANARKHON emerged from Brazil in 1999 as a brutal Death Metal band aesthetically influenced by vintage CANNIBAL CORPSE, releasing a number of well-received demos, splits and full-lengths between 2002 and 2013 before taking a six year hiatus. 2020 saw the band return reinvigorated with new album “Phantasmagorical Personification Of The Death Temple“, a more obscure, experimental and cerebral record of eerie atmospheric riffs and cavernous vocals heavily influenced by the cosmic horror of H.P Lovecraft.
