Black Metallers EPISODE 13 have released a digi single as a foretaste of the direction the band will be taking with their fourth full-length album, which they will begin recording in the autumn of this year. The single, titled “Corpus Vile”, is available from the band directly through their Bandcamp page for $1 – or more if the fans are feeling generous, at http://episode13.bandcamp.com/
Formed in 2001 EPISODE 13 is one of only a very small handful of Turkish bands of any genre, let alone Black Metal, that has not only gained acceptance, but also found a large audience, outside of its own country, making regular appearances at festivals such as Norway’s Inferno Festival and London’s Infernal Damnation Fest, as well as tours in Russia, Finland and Denmark.
EPISODE 13’s third full-length album “Death Reclaims the Earth”, with its artwork by the US artists Seraph + Splendor, who used blood to create the eerie image, was released in 2010 on Misantrof AntiRecords, the Norwegian label founded and headed by CARPATHIAN FOREST bassist Daniel Vrangsinn. “Death Reclaims the Earth” has become one of Misantrof’s most downloaded albums, and, like all of Misantrof’s releases, is available for free download, in various formats from http://episode13.misantrof.net/
