Austrian atmospheric black metal project Vástígr is releasing the second full-length on May 24th via Avantgarde Music. Titled The Path of Perdition, the four track material is coming out on CD, LP and digital formats.

Vástígr is the solo project of Þ. (HāgIll Tidings and several other projects), Austrian composer, guitarist and singer. Vástígr debut, Aura Aeternitatis came out via Avantgarde Music in 2019. Indeed, it impressed all those who dared entering its realm. A perfect blending of atmospheric black metal and dissonant, complex structures typical to the Icelandic scene, Vástígr music is one of the very rare cases in which a black metal artist is actually crafting something personal and unique.

After a five-year long silence, Vástígr is back with its sophomore album, The Path of Perdition. A cathartic journey through downfall and uprising of accepting man’s futility and insignificance in a greater (cosmic) scheme.

As described by Þ., «the eternal cycle goes ever on and could not care less what happens to us. Eventually the wheel of time crushes us all like insects. What remains is memory, ruins, ashes, until even those fade into oblivion…Aand the knowledge that the cycle shall repeat itself, for better or worse».

Produced in Iceland at Studio Emissary by Stephen Lockhart, The Path of Perdition will feature once again a cover art by French artist Metastazis. The very same who created art for Blut Aus NordAlcestAmorphisOndskapt and many other prominent artists.

Tracklist:
1. Plunge
2. Chasm
3. Katharsis
4. Eternity
