We’re very proud to renew our years-long perverse partnership we have with Italian black ambient / death industrial demon CLAVICVLA. “Degeneracy of the 5th Density”, the wretched third full-length album from the Italian soundscaping death-dealer, will be released July 22 2022 in collaboration with Cyclic Law.
Coinciding with the album’s announcement the track “Dead Bishop” has been revealed by always poignant underground music blog Everything Is Noise, who have remarked how “‘Dead Bishop’ presents CLAVICVLA in the act’s finest form, having refined its craft throughout its existence and earlier two albums. The ambiance-heavy, meditative pathos found here is otherwordly, conveying mental images of horrors and dreads both bodily and cosmic proportions while advancing in low-frequency tremors and constant hums, capable of inducing nightmarish state of being.” – you can check the full feature HERE.
From the artwork to the titles and themes, the intent of new full-length offering “Degeneracy of the 5th Density” is clear: worshiping and glorifying perversions, deviancy and immorality in their every form and shape. With these nefarious intents sole mastermind Ittiel has orchestrated the rise of this third aural plague of his around a creeping miasma of monstrous sepulchral ambience reeking from the ruptured bowels of oblivion, unfolding a forty-five minute sonic nightmare of absolutely omnipotent repulsiveness.
Corroding reality like a biblical plague, Ittiel has invoked these eight tracks of nefarious black ambient bedlam from a putrid death-scarred fog begotten of hell, conceptualizing its inverted spawn with blood freezing synthesis and a regurgitation of deconstructed soundscapes and wretched utterings hissing blasphemies from beyond the mortal plane. Dark ambient, black industrial, ritual drone, noise and subsonic horrors of all kinds are distilled by the demiurge into a sonic morass of total suffering and terror, and ritualized into a soundtrack to every broken soul’s most hidden, vile and foul impulses. As usual cryptic and hermetically malignant in its bestial craft, it is not entirely clear or discernible what Ittiel’s broken mind has conceived lyrically and thematically speaking in this new chapter of his abominable creation, but one can rest assured that immeasurable dissolution and abandon into the most depraved depths of perversion remain the ultimate prize of these noisome incantations that insult life and innocence at the most humiliating extremes imaginable.
“Degeneracy of the 5th Density” will be released July 22 2022 on LP/MC/digital formats in collaboration with Cyclic Law handling the EU LP and CD versions.
