On September 15th, Unholy Anarchy Records will unleash Opus Serpens, a split release featuring two of underground black metal’s most impressive new acts; ASHENCULT and MEPHORASH.
From the darkest corners of the occult comes Opus Serpens. This 10-inch split is pressed on a limited silver vinyl and traditional black vinyl. Each copy comes with a custom patch and poster of the cover art, which was crafted by Italian mastermind Paolo Girardi. Pre-orders for Opus Serpens are now being taken at this location.
Philadelphia’s ASHENCULT self-released their debut album, Black Flame Gnosis, last year on both CD and digital formats, receiving praise from a variety of press outlets. For the Opus Serpens split, ASHENCULT offers “My Tenth Death,” the band’s first new material since the debut. The track provides a glimpse of what’s to come from this exceptional and up-and-coming USBM act. Unholy Anarchy Records will also be releasing Black Flame Gnosis as a gatefold 12-inch LP in October. Stay tuned for pre-order information and details on this exceptional slab of vinyl.
Swedish misanthropes MEPHORASH deliver a haunting dose of occult Black Metal on their side, with the track “Atramentous Ungod Aspect.” Guest vocals for the song were provided by the unholiest of them all; Acherontas V. Priest. Sink your teeth into this expertly crafted slice of occult Black Metal. NoCleanSinging.com is hosting a stream of “Atramentous Ungod Aspect.” To listen, go HERE.
