Stockholm (SE) - Symphonic Black Metal band KATHAROS have premiered of "Those Hornclad," the opening track from forthcoming album Of Lineages Long Forgotten.
KATHAROS will release Of Lineages Long Forgotten May 13 on CD, vinyl, and digital formats via Willowtip Records. KATHAROS exalts the Scandinavian black/death-sound with killer riffs, epic symphonic arrangements and crushing drums in the vein of Emperor and Dimmu Borgir.
KATHAROS' sophomore album Of Lineages Long Forgotten offers a fresh take on the symphonic black metal genre with complex yet unrelenting arrangements recorded in the legendary Necromorbus Studio (Mayhem, Watain et al.). The album rewards multiple listens without compromising energy or flow (in the vein of Emperor). It is an album that easily flows from epic majestic pieces to blasting infernos. It will draw the listener in with harmony and then deep dive into intriguing dissonance.
The band sums it up most succinctly in stating that "we are very proud of the album, and this recording sets the music in its right aural space.”
