Symphonic Black Metallers KATHAROS Releasing ‘Of Lineages Long Forgotten’ on Willowtip in May

KATHAROS220305

Symphonic Black Metal band KATHAROS will release new album Of Lineages Long Forgotten May 13 on CD, vinyl, and digital formats via Willowtip RecordsKATHAROS exalts the Scandinavian black/death-sound with killer riffs, epic symphonic arrangements and crushing drums in the vein of Emperor and Dimmu Borgir.

The album’s first single, “The World Serpent’s Marrow,” is streaming at: youtu.be/_GYl2ULd4tw

KATHAROS’ sophomore album Of Lineages Long Forgotten offers a fresh take on the symphonic black metal genre with complex yet unrelenting arrangements recorded in the legendary Necromorbus Studio (MayhemWatain et al.). The album rewards multiple listens without compromising energy or flow (in the vein of Emperor). It is an album that easily flows from epic majestic pieces to blasting infernos. It will draw the listener in with harmony and then deep dive into intriguing dissonance.

The band sums it up most succinctly in stating that “we are very proud of the album, and this recording sets the music in its right aural space.”
