You got the release date wrong, it's April 30 not April 25. Anyway, Rise Vulcan Spectre was one of the best thrash metal albums of the past decade and this first single is on the same level in terms of quality so I'm looking forward to this one.

Sounds cool and the cover artwork is great (even though I can't unsee that big cock that pops out of nowhere).

Yeah. The last Sepulcher album was amazing, like Slayer playing Obliteration songs.

Sepulcher, Inculter and Condor (R.I.P.) all put out really great thrash metal albums in the past five years or so. Norway has the best thrash metal scene in the world right now along with Chile (where you have bands like Critical Defiance and Ripper releasing killer thrash).

Fuck yes! The single sounds like a good blend of Divinity of Death and Rise, Vulcan Spectre material. Can't remember where they wrote it (either insta or fb), but they said to expect something "faster and darker" for this album. I guess I had envisioned it going the Sadus route of faster, but man hits the spot anyway. Couldn't agree more about the Norwegian thrash scene, that final Condor record is probably one of my all time favourites. Stoked to hear the rest!

Very excited for this one and have already pre-ordered it. Actually prefer this project to Obliteration (both are fantastic though). See them as a sort of younger kindred spirit to Aura Noir, without being a rip-off, and bringing plenty of unique touches to the table as well.

+1 for the Norwegian scene! It seems that the disciples of Aura Noir and Fenriz have grown up and paving their own way.

Nekromantheon might just be the best of the bunch (my #1 for 2012), so obviously I am looking forward to this.

Pre-ordered the vinyl, can't wait. Vulcan Spectre was probably the best thrash album released for me since Hypnosia's Extreme Hatred.

"Thanatos" kicks ass.

This could well end up in one of the top 3 spots of my 2021 list.

Love all 3 songs so far.

All I can say is bring it on! This album is easily shaping up to be a Top 10 contender if not Top 5 for thrash album of the year.

This album destroys. Some of the most violent, unhinged thrash I've heard this year.

You know it's a good album when side 2 holds your interest just as much as side 1.
The title track is a monster and i'm only on 3 spins,but Dead Temples just reared up as another favourite with the song title right there in the first lyric.Raging thrash riffs on the opening here.!

Been spinning this. Dangerous album to choose for driving music, makes me want to mash that pedal through the goddamn floor. Love it.

I love this album, I prefer it to 'Rise, vulcan spectre' which was also very good.
Purchased on Bandcamp.

Listened to it just once, but I definitely gotta spin it some more. Very easy to listen to, but I gotta see if any of it sticks around

I recently partook in a Nekromantheon triathleon,playing Visions,Rise and Divinity one after the other and honestly i can't at this point pick out a favourite.Totally solid output so far.I might need to take a weeks break from thrash after doing this but i was convinced there was not much if anything between them.

This oozes Reign In Blood levels of chaotic catchiness.

Early contender for AOTY.
