Mysticism, magic, occult arts and rituals, all of which are driving factors behind ACHERONTAS, are also the most adequate words that can be used to describe the band's image, sound and lyrics. The band is considered as one of the leading representatives of the New Wave of Greek Black Metal, heavily influenced by the original Hellenic metal scene, retro rock (especially the 70's rock) and eastern philosophy. The band was brought to life in 1996 by V.Priest and was ever since true to its internal tenets and traditions, which deemed it as "a Magical Coven, dedicated to the Ancient Summerian Mysteries of Drakonian Blood". The new album is monumental, and delivers the most mature, potent and diverse offerinngs, against a background of seven studio albums and more than twenty years of existence.
"Psychic Death - The Shattering Of Perceptions" was recorded in Grecce, Germany and UK, at the band's own studios (the "Coven’s Corridors of Wilderness"). The album was produced, mixed and mastered at Pentagram Studio by George Emmanuel (Lucifer's Child, ex-Rotting Christ). Cover artwork was prepared by Chris Undirheimar of Blood and Fire Ritual Art studio.
