Official press release:
Polish black/death metal tyrants Azarath have signed a new record deal with Agonia Records. Their last release with the label was the 2009 offering Praise The Beast. The band is excpected to release a new album, successor to Blasphemers’ Maledictions from six years ago, this April.
Described by Blabbermouth.net as a “demonic mutation of Krisiun and Behemoth with shades of Immolation“, Azarath stand up to their wicked name. The band’s death metal is crisp, black, and while it possesses the charm of their American counterparts, it remains open-minded and organic. This should not come as a surprise, considering the band’s impressive line-up and cemented position as one the the best Polish acts of the genre.
Azarath crept from the shadows almost two decades ago, by the will of Inferno (of longtime Behemoth fame) and then-members Bruno and D. Six albums later, the band’s line-up is shaped by the said Behemoth drummer, together with Bart (Armagedon, Damnation) on guitars, Necrosodom (Anima Damnata, Deus Mortem, ex-Infernal War) on vocals and guitars, as well as Peter (ex-Lost Soul) on bass.
After rejoining forces with Agonia Records, Azarath is ready to shed some blood upon the altar once again in 2017.
