Official press release:
Named after a gorgeous, but poisonous flower that blooms in winter, Manitou Springs, CO based Helleborus is the new creation of brothers Jerred & Wyatt Houseman (both former members of Execration). Pushing their creative freedom to new levels, the psychedelic black metal project is Dionysian in nature and explores themes of sexual mysticism, Qabalah & the Esoteric.
For their second song debut to the metal world, Helleborus has teamed up with NefariousRealm.com for the exclusive premiere of their forthcoming album’s title track ‘The Carnal Sabbath’.
Vocalist/lyricist Wyatt Houseman comments:
““The Carnal Sabbath” is the core sound of our album; a skeletal anthem blending all the imagination and magic that we put into this album. With this piece we wanted craft a seamless structure of all our musical influences as well as a perfect image of the concepts behind the music. This track symbolizes balance and power with its brooding rhythms and sinister melodies. There is a lot to take from this track and it’s an excellent conclusion to the album.”
“The Carnal Sabbath” is one of many songs the brothers plan to unleash on their soon to be finished debut full length, a release that combines black, death and doom metal with a vast ambiance. Venturing outside the conventional colors of traditional black metal, Jerred & Wyatt plan to deliver a new aura of sound where fans of The Devil’s Blood, Satyricon, Necorphobic, Belphegor, Blut Aus Nord are sure to connect with them.
In addition to their track premiere, the duo will be debut their live line up in Colorado Springs, CO on August 21st at Zodiac Lounge. Full show details can be found here.
