AKHLYS - New Album Out In December, Available For Streaming In Full

USA based ambient/black metal act Akhlys present the eagerly anticipated new offering entitled Melinoë - five paeans of hypnotic, metamorphic and dangerously addictive black metal titled after the Orphic Goddess, bringer of nightmare and madness. The album will be officially released on 14th December via Debemur Morti Productions.

The most group-oriented iteration of Akhlys to date here channel the structural arcs of dream experience as they weave martial drumming, swarming counterpoint guitars, spellbinding dark ambient textures and vocal paroxysms of euphoric terror into layered, multi-faceted songs that perfectly juxtapose meticulous craftsmanship and frightening pandemonium.

Spiritual, mythic, emotional and physical, with Melinoë Akhlys have deepened the mystery to draw yet more inside a new way of dreaming. In the words of the band’s prime architect Naas Alcameth: “From the gates of slumber, where succubi perch betwixt wakefulness and dream, to the dark lands beyond, where nightmare daemons and the gods of terror preside, Melinoë serves as noctuary, hymnal and sojourn.”

Melinoë is already available for streaming in its entirety, and you are invited to hear this nightmarish vibes, furious black metal riffing and eerie dark ambient elements by clicking play in the player below. Link
