Debemur Morti Productions is proud to present “Triunity“, or the metaphysical alliance of Legendary Unorthodox Black Metal and Industrial Dark Drone !
Indeed, “Triunity” is the result of an unexpected reunion gathering two major entities of the extreme French musical scene, BLUT AUS NORD and P.H.O.B.O.S.. Both engaged in a bewitching endeavour to create an occult structure of industrial, urban and insane sounds.
The track list is as follows :
BLUT AUS NORD
1. De Librio Arbitrio
4. Glowing Phosphoros
5. Transfixed At Golgotha
6. Ahrimanic Impulse Victory
The front cover and inner part of the cover contains two paintings from infamous, yet incredibly gifted, Polish artist Katarzyna Urbanek. Layout was conceived and assembled by Dehn Sora (well known for his works for ULVER, BLUT AUS NORD, MANES, NEUROSIS etc.).
This ambitious and deeply dark project will be released on June 20th (June 24th in North America) on Digipack CD, Gatefold 12″ LP and Digital Download.
BLUT AUS NORD
The faceless entity
Originating in 1994 from the ashes of VLAD (who released two demos), BLUT AUS NORD are undisputable French Black Metal pioneers, always managing to progress and move forward, evolving in perpetual mutation, developing their own vision of Black Metal.
Choosing, from the start, the total opposite path of regressive bands (who copy what others have done ten years earlier and ten times better), BLUT AUS NORD eschews all the inherent clichés belonging to the genre. BLUT AUS NORD‘s Black Metal approach is a fist in the face of mainstream mediocrity, becoming more macabre and sinister through a blend of innovative musical research, subliminal mental manipulation, and an incredible haunted, nightmarish feeling based on disharmony.
BLUT AUS NORD are creators of a hallucinogenic universe, erasing all preconceived ideas of Black Metal – and extreme music in general. They redefine the rules…
