Today, HELLS HEADBANGERS announces the release of a new DENOUNCEMENT PYRE 7” EP titled Darkness Manifest in the lead-up to their forthcoming second album, Almighty Arcanum. This EP will act as a preview of what is to come with the next full-length and will feature one album track plus an additional track that is exclusive to this release. Both songs were recorded during different sessions to those for the album, so they are unique to this release and will be released in a limited pressing that will be available soon.
DENOUNCEMENT PYRE comment: “Darkness Manifest should be considered as more of a pathway to, rather than a direct preview of, what can be expected with the next full-length. The title track [‘Darkness Manifest’] has been re-recorded during the album recording sessions, so we offer it here as a raw and unhinged version that will provide some insight into the newer material and the direction we are heading. Meanwhile, the B-side [‘Eleven Gates’] is the most obscure track that we have ever recorded with DENOUNCEMENT PYRE and one we felt worthy of inclusion for this release.Before we plunge with full force into the Almighty Arcanum, we must set the tone with Darkness Manifest. Beware the shadows…more to be revealed soon!’
In related DENOUNCEMENT PYRE news, the recording of the band’s Almighty Arcanum album is now complete, and the tracks have recently been mastered at Endarker Studios Sweden. The follow-up to 2010’s World Cremation is scheduled for release on CD & LP in January 2013, again through HELLS HEADBANGERS.
