Hells Headbangers has announced the release of a new DENOUNCEMENT PYRE seven-inch EP titled “Darkness Manifest” in the lead-up to the Australian black/death metal band’s forthcoming second album, “Almighty Arcanum”. This EP will act as a preview of what is to come with the next full-length and will feature one album track plus an additional song that is exclusive to this release. Both cuts were recorded during different sessions to those for the album, so they are unique to this release and will be released in a limited pressing that will be available soon.
Commented DENOUNCEMENT PYRE: “‘Darkness Manifest’ should be considered as more of a pathway to, rather than a direct preview of, what can be expected with the next full-length. The title track [‘Darkness Manifest’] has been re-recorded during the album recording sessions, so we offer it here as a raw and unhinged version that will provide some insight into the newer material and the direction we are heading. Meanwhile, the B-side [‘Eleven Gates’] is the most obscure track that we have ever recorded with DENOUNCEMENT PYRE and one we felt worthy of inclusion for this release. Before we plunge with full force into the ‘Almighty Arcanum’, we must set the tone with ‘Darkness Manifest’. Beware the shadows…more to be revealed soon!”
The recording sessions for “Almighty Arcanum” are now complete and the tracks were recently mastered at Endarker Studios in Sweden. The follow-up to 2010’s “World Cremation” is scheduled for release on CD and LP in January 2013, again through Hells Headbangers.
