HAGATIZ premiere new track at – features members of DAUÞUZ, HÄXENZIJRKELL, ABYTHIC, HAIMAD+++

Teutonic black metallers Hagatiz premiere the new track “Drown in Darkness” at heavily trafficked web-portal The track is the second to be revealed from the band’s highly anticipated debut album, Cursed to the Night, set for international release on October 11th via Amor Fati Productions. Hear Hagatiz‘s “Drown in Darkness” exclusively HERE.

Hailing from Germany, Hagatiz are a new formation of old souls: Dauþuz‘s Semgoroth, Häxenzijrkell‘s MK, and the ever-profilic Odium Aeternum (Abythic, Haimad, Lunar Chalice, Mysteria Mystica Aeterna et. al.). Together, these scene veterans reveal Cursed to the NightHagatiz‘s first public recording. 

Fully formed, as to be expected from such a stellar lineup, Hagatiz‘s debut album comprises pure, uncompromising BLACK METAL steeped in the ancients: no more, but definitely no less. The point is not to “be” anything other than authentically old-school black metal in the best ’90s tradition, from Scandinavia and across to Germania and even on to the Eastern Bloc. Raw without being ineffectual, dark and haunting yet brimming with just enough melody, Cursed to the Night is a work of total passion and spirit; that Hagatiz make it seem so effortless is perhaps unsurprising, but it’s remarkable nevertheless. There is no “thinking” involved in this experience, only feeling – and such was the way it was as the ’90s drew to a close and pure hearts heeded the call to head deeper underground. It’s not inaccurate to say that Hagatiz could’ve been released ​on such era-embodying vanguards as Sombre, Drakkar, or Solistitium, so authentic is this essence and atmosphere…but again, ​only FEELING Cursed to the Night is real.
