Nuclear War Now! Productions announces August 1st as the international release date for the highly anticipated third album from Florida’s Gnosis, Omens From the Dead Realm, on vinyl LP and cassette tape formats.
From the Greek word for “knowledge,” Gnosis is adept at translating Greek sonic arcana into their own distinct language. Straddling the line between black and death metal, Gnosis treads this bottomless sea with an aplomb matched by few others. Blunt brutality is complemented by breathtaking melancholia with tasteful nods to archetypes found throughout the history of heavy metal music. Album highlights such as “Apzu, Sea of Death” can confidently stand in conversation with elder Greek progenitors Varathron and Rotting Christ while still maintaining their own distinct thesis.
This is the sound of aquatic Babylonian chaos, albeit through the lens of the ancient depth-dwelling elders of Lovecraft’s abyss. Omens From the Dead Realm is the second Gnosis release in partnership with NWN! Productions.
