With “Embrace Of The Godless Aeon,” their first record in five years, proving to be one of the best-reviewed extreme metal releases of the year to date, the UK-based symphonic blackened death metal group HECATE ENTHRONED have unveiled a lyric video for the album track “Erebus and Terror,” which features guest vocals by Sarah Jezebel Deva (Cradle of Filth, Therion, Mortiis).
Check out the video below.
While “Embrace…” proves definitively that HECATE ENTHRONED is still as brutal and scornful as ever, the album also shows occasional hints of gothic and ambient influences, and “Erebus and Terror” is a prime example. Says bassist Dylan Hughes, “On an album full of epic tracks, ‘Erebus and Terror’ still stands out as a monster. Massive and powerful, it creeps between eerie dark chills and huge powerhouse sections that utilize the full armory of soaring orchestras and crushing guitars to deliver a skillfully-crafted song. With the incredible vocal talents of Sarah Jezebel Deva, this track is lifted to another level of emotion and feeling, as she delivered a performance that matches the intensity of the music. To have Sarah with us gives our music and writing another dimension – a real organic element that can lift or carry a song through the emotion ranges.”
