The pale light that shines in a kingdom of darkness could be just another deadly lure…
After a debut album showing the will to re-ignite the flame of a sophisticated and emphatic approach of extreme metal, yet still deeply rooted in the second wave of Scandinavian black metal, Deathcode Society are back with Unlightenment, a merciless dive into the aphotic zone, as the cover artwork by Kjell Age Melland shows.
Epic and eerie, the seven songs explore the depth of the human mind through a restless and tempestuous music melting together a brutal metal instrumentation with orchestral arrangements, choirs, synths, and concrete samples.
With lyrics bathed in dark surrealism – two of them being rendering of poems by Andrew Joron and René Daumal – Unlightenment is a musical journey through the Other Side and this gloomy maze where psychosis, murderous urges and mystical obsessions endlessly wander.
In the leadup to its international release this Friday, hear Unightenment in its entirety exclusively HERE, courtesy of the Transmissions From the Dark YouTube channel. Preorder info can be found HERE. Presave link can be found HERE. Aforementioned cover artwork and tracklisting are as follows:
