Today, Iron Bonehead Productions sets December 10th as the international release date for a brand-new 7″ EP from Black Cilice titled Tomb Emanations.
By now, Black Cilice should require no introduction. Arguably THE most pivotal raw black metal entity of the last decade, this Portuguese enigma has come to both define and defy that idiom. Unmindful of the present, not looking to the future, and undoubtedly rooted in the past, Black Cilice simply IS, and its vast body of work speaks for itself: challenging, for sure, but transportative and transcendental beyond compare.
Tomb Emanations comprises two brand-new (or brand-old?) tracks exclusive to this release. No more but definitely no less, this is Black Cilice at its hysteric, hackle-raising best. By turns triumphant and melancholic, absurdly blown-out but keenly nuanced, and mesmerizing – and melodic – every step of the way, Tomb Emanations truly lives up to its title. Long may Black Cilice reign, even when lording over the short-length realm.
Hear the latest sounds of that reign with the brand-new track “Returning From Dimensions Below” HERE at Iron Bonehead‘s Soundcloud. Cover and tracklisting are as follows:
