“Ritual Marks Of Penitence”, the new video from French sowers of intelligent, distinctive, and airless black metal AOSOTH, can be seen below. The clip was directed by Matthieu Spinazzola and David Fitt.
“Ritual Marks Of Penitence” comes off AOSOTH‘s new album, “IV: Arrow In Heart”, which will be releasedon April 16 via Agonia Records. The CD is a natural improvement over the band’s previous release, entitled “III”, which already was “a major step forward for Aosoth in creating their own distinct sound” (Sputnik Music).
Commented the band: “We’ve spent such a huge amount of time on defining a darker identity, yet open to a wider range of influences. Those tracks still haunt us, as delivering them was a painful and excruciating experience, and left some of us even physically wounded… Which gives that album even more of a spiritual value, as it involved a form of sacrifice.” They added: “This fourth full-length release is without a doubt a great step forward for us in term of music writing, and sound.”
“IV: Arrow In Heart” consists of six original tracks with a running time of 56 minutes.
The track listing for the CD is as follows:
01. An Arrow in Heart
02. One With The Prince With A Thousand Enemies
03. Temple of Knowledge
04. Under The Nails and Fingertips
05. Broken Dialogue 1
05. Broken Dialogue 2
06. Ritual Marks Of Penitence
