Meslamtaea reveal “Inktzwart”, the first track of their upcoming record “Geketend in de schaduw van het leven“.
The album will be released by Babylon Doom Cult Records on September 4th in an edition of 200 hand-numbered vinyl copies.
You can pre-order the LP now at the Babylon Doom Cult Records webshop.
With “Geketend in de schaduw van het leven”, Meslamtaea dig deep and deliver an epic masterpiece of highly evocative, progressive yet atmospheric black metal.
Conceptually, the album deals with the decline of the world as we know it. We’re getting more and more disconnected from our Mother Earth and are heading full speed to our own demise. Those who care are getting furious and frustrated with the rest of the world for not giving a damn.
Musically, this maelstrom of emotions is captured in furious riffing, intertwined with jazzy and progressive parts, always with one eye on the song itself.
Join in on this trip of frustration, sadness, acceptance, rage and despondency.
Vocal guest appearances come from Fraukje van Burg (Doodwens) and Kevin Kentie (Verbum Verus, Ibex Angel Order, Abysmal Darkening) while Otto Kokke plays saxophone on the album.
