Brace yourself for an infernal descent into the abyss as we announce the unholy union of Finnish melodic black metal masters, Mormânt De Snagov, and Wormholedeath! Prepare to be submerged by the searing darkness of their forthcoming opus, “Invocation Through Revocation,” set to be released on November 17, 2023.
In a statement that echoes through the depths of the underground scene, Mormânt De Snagov declared, “Mormânt De Snagov is truly excited about signing the deal with WormHoleDeath. We have been operating deep in the underground for 15 years now, and although it has been very good for us, and the labels we’ve worked with have been fantastic, we felt this might be our time to step up in the game. We feel that WormHoleDeath can offer us just the right channels to release ‘Invocation Through Revocation,’ which we are obviously very proud of.”
“Invocation Through Revocation” marks the fifth installment in Mormânt De Snagov‘s infernal odyssey. This sonic odyssey is an intoxicating blend of relentless aggression, icy melancholy, and majestic orchestral harmonies. Sinister progressiveness and a blackened urgeto triumph are woven into every track. From relentless, high-velocity bursts to hauntingly harmonic guitar solos, and from thrashy death metal eruptions to melodic, mesmerizing choruses, this album offers an unforgettable journey into the abyss.
The album was crafted between June 2022 and November 2022 amidst the haunting beauty of the Finnish countryside. This remote locale allowed the band to channel their dark, atmospheric vision into the seven tracks that make up “Invocation Through Revocation.” The result is an album where all the enchanting elements of darkness are visible and striking.
Mormânt De Snagov, hailing from the Turku and Naantali regions of Finland, was forged in 2008 by a cadre of seasoned metal veterans. Over their 15-year career, their sonic evolution has been nothing short of a blackened metamorphosis, fusing elements from diverse genres while retaining their core of hateful black metal. Their lyrical themes, once wrapped in old horror story classics, have evolved alongside their music. The name of the band refers to old horror story classics, and during the first years, Mormânt De Snagov actually used horror stories as frames for their dark ideology in the lyrics, accompanied by a raw black metal sound. The members of Mormânt De Snagov have also released several previous efforts through multiple bands and the collective CV nametags, such groupings as Fall of the Leafe, Ablaze in Hatred, Searing Meadow, Malefic by Design, Leaflet, and Devastracktor. This is the band’s moment to shine on a grander stage, and they’re poised to unleash their sonic malevolence upon the world.
