HECATE ENTHRONED Premieres Video For Collaboration With Sarah Jezebel Deva

Symphonic black metal

With “Embrace Of The Godless Aeon,” their first record in five years, proving to be one of the best-reviewed extreme metal releases of the year to date, the UK-based symphonic blackened death metal group HECATE ENTHRONED have unveiled a lyric video for the album track “Erebus and Terror,” which features guest vocals by Sarah Jezebel Deva (Cradle of Filth, Therion, Mortiis).

While “Embrace…” proves definitively that HECATE ENTHRONED is still as brutal and scornful as ever, the album also shows occasional hints of gothic and ambient influences, and “Erebus and Terror” is a prime example. Says bassist Dylan Hughes, “On an album full of epic tracks, ‘Erebus and Terror’ still stands out as a monster. Massive and powerful, it creeps between eerie dark chills and huge powerhouse sections that utilize the full armory of soaring orchestras and crushing guitars to deliver a skillfully-crafted song. With the incredible vocal talents of Sarah Jezebel Deva, this track is lifted to another level of emotion and feeling, as she delivered a performance that matches the intensity of the music. To have Sarah with us gives our music and writing another dimension – a real organic element that can lift or carry a song through the emotion ranges.”

Adds vocalist Joe Stamps, “’Erebus and Terrror’ is about the ill-fated Franklin Expedition, in which the sailors who were stranded in the Northwest Passage were reported to have begun to cannibalize one another. The lyrics describe a loss of humanity through sickness and desperation and even compares these to lycanthropy – men becoming beasts.”

“Embrace Of The Godless Aeon” – which features cover artwork by Nestor Avalos (Bloodbath, Rotting Christ, The Black Dahlia Murder), as seen above – is out now on CD, digital and red splatter vinyl. A limited-edition deluxe box set that features exclusive purple vinyl and cassette editions of the album, a signed photo card, stickers, patches and other collectibles is also available direct from our webstore www.m-theoryadio.com/store or www.plastichead.com.
