Finnish black/death metal entity LANTERN will release their recently completed debut full-length, Below, on Dark Descent Records this summer. The album will be in stores on June 25th and available for pre-order on CD, black vinyl and red vinyl via the Dark Descent Records Webstore now.
After letting the dust of their acknowledged 2011 EP settle, LANTERN have returned to deliver a new, far more epic slab of dark and atmospheric death metal performed in the ancient vein. LANTERN‘s debut album Below is a relentless plunge into the unfathomable darkness these compositions are born of, presented in the band’s unique style of carefully crafted yet filthy and morbid metal. Compiling seven strongly distinct macabre tales and covering thirty-eight minutes,Below is a definitive statement of a band in top form and demonstrates that death is not dead.
Artwork for Below comes courtesy of Alexander Brown (VORUM, MITOCHONDRIAN, et. al.). Album track “Entrenching Presences” is now streaming at this location.
