EMBRYONIC SLUMBER - Debut Album Out In March, Two Tracks Available For Streaming

  • Print

Finnish black metal duo Embryonic Slumber, consisting of longtime veterans of the underground: Vargrav/Druadan Forest mainman V-Khaoz and Hellwind Inferion, an incredibly prolific drummer but more recently known as the vocalist for both Sargeist and Desolate Shrine, will release their debut album entitled In Worship Our Blood Is Buried on 19th March via Werewolf Records.

On the evidence of this fully-formed first creation, Embryonic Slumber are indeed aptly monikered. Theirs is a dense-yet-sumptuous swell of sound, "cosmic black metal" in form and content, but finessed and nuanced to such a sterling degree that this debut album safely evades the cliches endemic to this idiom. Its sound walls may feel like purple velvet, but the sheer enormity of their paradoxically spacious swell feel suffocating and liberating simultaneously. Hear the first two revealed tracks, "I Am The Storm" and "Mortify Your Servant", in the players below. Link
