ORDINANCE - Presents First Track From Upcoming Sophomore Album

Finnish black metal insurgents Ordinance premiered the new track "Diabolopathia". The track is the first to be revealed from the band's highly anticipated second album, In Purge There Is No Remission, set for international release on 11th September via The Sinister Flame.

Formed sometime during the beginning of this cursed new millennium, Ordinance have been a study of patience and pride. Not for them to rush out releases; each creation comes when it is ready. No more, no less... no mystique intended. Naturally for a band that eschews wider visibility and the cheap gimmicks or safe categorization that gets many/most bands there, Ordinance have remained something of a "diamond in the rough" as it were - a band too often (and unjustly) overlooked, based solely on the strength of their recordings. While The Sinister Flame does not hold out much hope for the public changing its weak ways, it is confident in saying that Ordinance have delivered their most potent work yet in their long-awaited sophomore album, In Purge There is No Remission.

Utterly ominous, tauntingly sinister, Ordinance here create a seven-song soundscape that manages to unnerve and unhinge the listener as ably as the band have already done to their own spiritual parameters. A dense-but-devious 50 minutes in total, In Purge There is No Remission possesses an atmosphere that's unpredictable yet unified, exciting but never scattershot. This is a work of master craftsmen and cunning sorcerers simultaneously, a delirious (and delirium-inducing) trip into madness and mysticism: a reconstitution of second-wave classicism with boundaries both broken and built.
