On November 11th, Greek Black Metal band RAVENCULT will release their third full-length (and Metal Blade Records debut), "Force Of Profanation". Listen to the first single "Beneath The Relics Of Old" below!
RAVENCULT comments: "In this first sample of our new album, one can witness a big part of what RAVENCULT is all about in the "Force Of Profanation" era. Almost all important elements of the band’s sound here shine in their entirety, combining our adoration for the old thrash/d-beat pace with sinister Black Metal in a variety of tempos. Lyric-wise, "Beneath The Relics Of Old" is inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s "At The Mountains Of Madness", completing our vision of descending into bottomless depths of horror. For us, making steps forward means definitely not incorporating modern or more complex/technical parts; it’s all about honoring our roots and sound by maximizing aggression and morbidity each time, maintaining the riff-after-riff mentality while everything is executed with absolute determination."
Originating from Athens, Greece, RAVENCULT was spawned to revive the relentless side of Black/Thrash Metal, bringing forth an unpolished, organic sound to manifest their morbid darkness. With "Force Of Profanation", they dive even deeper into the abyss of metal obscurity, delivering a merciless barrage of metallic death that continues the tradition of their trademark conceptual axis: revenge, horror and mocking of all that is holy.
