ORCRYPT - Entire New Album Available For Streaming

British dark fantasy black metal trio Orcrypt is releasing their second album Balrog & Roll today. The band is now streaming the album in its entirety and you can hear it in the player below. The album is released via Death To Music Productions both digitally and on limited CD.

Lyrically the album explores the darkest aspects of Gary Gygax's Dungeons & Dragons, J.R.R. Martin explains: "Dungeons & Dragons is filled with darkness, corruption and evil. Ultimately for a lot of people the appeal of either Dungeons & Dragons or black metal is that it gives the opportunity for power fantasies, cathartic release and getting in touch with something deep, dark and primal. We have just merged the two."

Orcrypt formed in 2010. Inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord Of The Rings trilogy, and the early demos of the Norwegian black metal masters, they recorded and released their first demo The Mirkwood Massacre that same year. In 2015, Orcrypt unleashed their debut album. Influenced as much by Ralph Bakshi as J.R.R. Tolkien, and mastered to cassette, Mercenaries Of Mordor was an unrelenting lo-fi assault of droning underground black metal. But then, they vanished... and now resurrected. Link
