HECATE ENTHRONED - Unveils First Track From Upcoming Album

UK's long-running and one of the most respected underground acts, the black/death metal group Hecate Enthroned, have last week announced the release date and details of their highly anticipated new album, Embrace Of The Godless Aeon, their first album in five years (and their debut for new label M-Theory Audio), on 25th January 2019 (more details were posted over HERE). Now, the group has unveiled the first proper taste of the new record – "Temples That Breathe", which can now be heard in the form of a lyric video in the player below.
Says bassist Dylan Hughes: "The track is a critique of the Catholic Church for centuries of abuse. It paints the church as a kind of virulent entity that spreads pain and horror, almost as if the church itself is alive – hence, temples that breathe. The stark, menacing stills and imagery within the video create this unnerving miasma, an uneasy feeling like cold, stale secular breath on the back of your neck. The song features epic and sweeping orchestrations, heavy aggressive riffing, breakneck speeds and harmonies with a brutal vocal delivery – all the elements you'd expect from Hecate Enthroned, which are contained in abundance on this album, making this track the perfect first release to give you a flavor of what's to come."
