After years spent in hideout, Polish black/death metal kings and Agonia Records recent signees AZARATH, are ready to move forward with new music. On April 7th, the band (featuring drummer Inferno of long-time Behemoth fame) will return with their most furious sonic statement to date, a new album titled "In Extremis". The eerie painting that adorns the album's cover was made by Marta Promińska (Hypnagogic Painting).
Meaning "at the point of death" or "under extreme circumstances" in Latin, "In Extremis" is yet another apex reached by AZARATH. Offering a vehement ride through the netherworlds, the effort arrives six long years after its predecessor, "Blasphemers' Maledictions" (2011), and places the band back at the fore of the genre, with strong ties to the group's early cult albums. Black as a night and dense as tar, "In Extremis" offers a whirlwind of chaotic currents ready to overwhelm.
Recorded in various locations between March and November 2016, the opus was mixed and mastered by Haldor Grunberg at Satanic Audio. Graphic design and layout were done by Mentalporn (Behemoth, Origin, Kult) with calligraphy provided by Ihasan Art and additional work by Holy Poison Design.
