DODECAHEDRON are streaming the first track taken from their forthcoming album ‘kwintessens‘, which has been scheduled for release March 17th.
Listen Now to “HEXAHEDRON – Tilling The Human Soil” exclusively taken off their forthcoming album!
Regarding their sophomore full-length, DODECAHEDRON previously commented: “We are very excited about our new material. The forthcoming album is more coherent and straight forward compared to the debut. It was written with a clear and cold concept in mind, whereas the first album is a collection of material composed over a five year period. Expect more of our dismal atmospheres and calculated madness.”
DODECAHEDRON are simultaneously revealing the new artwork and the track-list of ‘kwintessens’, which can both be viewed below.
2. TETRAHEDRON – The Culling of the Unwanted from the Earth
3. HEXAHEDRON – Tilling the Human Soil
5. OCTAHEDRON – Harbinger
6. DODECAHEDRON – An Ill-Defined Air of Otherness
8. ICOSAHEDRON – The Death of Your Body
There is a universe of possibilities to explore musical darkness. Yet metal seems to have a tendency for endlessly riding stereotypical riff-horses until they are flogged to death and beyond the point of any meaningful resurrection. DODECAHEDRON furiously destroy such notions and advance to new horizons.
This Dutch League of Extraordinary Musicians is harnessing the power of seething black chaos into a precisely aimed sonic assault. Expanding on the pioneering works of MAYHEM in their ‘Ordo Ad Chao’ (2007) phase and French trailblazers DEATHSPELL OMEGA, DODECAHEDRON push this stream of extreme consciousness forward into even more spine-chilling dimensions.
Their sophomore full-length ‘kwintessens‘ arrives with intensified focus. Those atonal and dissonant monstrosities created by ultimate technical mastery and spawned on the self-titled debut album ‘Dodecahedron‘ (2012) are now directing their explosive fury with even more precision straight to the point. The balance between aggression and suspended states of icy shock has been re-calibrated.
DODECAHEDRON started out as ORDER OF THE SOURCE BELOW before embracing a clear vision of darkness reaching beyond black metal. Carving their own path into the cosmic dark musical matter with a stellar technical brilliance, ‘kwintessens‘ delivers the spark to ignite the new flame. Expect a brutal blast!
