Rapheumet’s Well stream new track “Planetary Cenotaph”

Rapheumet’s Well have debuted the second single from their upcoming sophomore effort The Exile titled “Planetary Cenotaph”. Drummer Joshua Ward comments:

‘Planetary Cenotaph’, being the last song on the album, was a bit ‘challenging’ for us in terms of composition as we write the music to the story. The main character just destroyed an entire planet. Due to his immortal ‘curse’ he is floating in the stellar remnants of his home-world. While his body is reforming and he is adrift he has a lot of time to think. His wife wife and kids were murdered, his empire betrayed him, he was tortured, he has seen some very wild stuff. He is processing the events in a very numb and displaced way. The emotions of the song actually came from the deaths of family members of the band recently. In the last two years we lost four parents and a grandparent, all within months of each other. So, this became a memorial song to them while keeping to the context of the story. What better way for us to honor someone than to write a metal song!”

The Exile is set to hit shelves on March 18th via Test Your Metal Records. Pre-orders are available through the label here (CD) and here (digital).
