AZOTHYST — BLOOD OF DEAD GOD


AZOTHYST — BLOOD OF DEAD GOD MLP / MCD / CASSETTE / DIGITAL / T-SHIRT / FLAGS

(Description by Shawn Haché)
In an age of saccharine palatability the only antidote is poison. A dreaded and mysterious formula to execute the uninitiated and elevate the worthy. Delivered in a stained chalice, Vault of Dried Bones puts this corrosive tincture to your lips and demands, “Imbibe!”. The long anticipated first offering of AZOTHYST is a sanguine solution. Swallow, enter a violently altered state, and prepare for the horror that awaits in the Blood of Dead God.

The cult of Azothyst has long lingered in whispers throughout the Canadian extreme metal microcosm. Occasionally surfacing in merciless sneak attacks, only to rescind back to unbeing. Complete manifestation has recoiled to the stuff of legend and oral tradition among the elite. With ranks comprising ancient corpse-keepers and the adversely prophetic, respect was immediately due upon initial rumour. At last, the hour is nigh! Sufficient belief has breathed life into thought-form and Pandora’s box has been shattered. Travel deep enough into the abyss and enter a parallel realm of horror and diabolism. Azothyst’s domain is an inversion of reality where the wretched become the crowned and conquering. The bottom of the pit is the pinnacle of the mountain, and it is a summit of skulls and carrion. You drank the slain deity’s essence to get this far, but will you scale the peaks or plumb the depths of a mass grave?

Neophite! Attune to the horrifyingly vast and oppressively cavernous before proceeding or abandon hope completely. From the moment of revelation, the onslaught is pure, pushing the frenzy to a fever pitch. Azothyst’s execution of sheer violence on Blood of Dead God is a ruthless dagger to the throat. At the peaks of madness, gnostic moments of clarity give way to hypnotic formlessness, and all suspends in suffocating surreality. In the grip of awakening, malevolence takes hold once again and the spiral towards brutality resumes. This calculated cycle of black/death metal in equal parts psychoactive ceremony and savage execution continues until the ritual is complete.

BLACK DEATH CULT

“Dreams within dreams: Black Death Cult is a reality-cleaving existential nightmare curated by Canadian artist and musician Timothy Grieco, otherwise known from Antediluvian and Revenge.”

– The difference between BLACK DEATH CULT and ANTEDILUVIAN is that the latter always has a learning curve. I write riffs beyond my ability and then force myself to sharpen up in order to play them tightly. I’m always pushing the envelope in terms of aggression and extremity. With BDC, I’m allowed to write things I can play immediately. It’s ferocious but more straightforward and to the point, abrupt and exclamatory with a sprinkling of doom and sleaze which would never fit the ANTEDILUVIAN vibe. In the sense that I’m writing within my ability, the process feels very natural – more like letting go than pushing forward. It’s not less heavy but, internally, it feels very different. I’m able to refer back to bands like BETHLEHEM, PENTAGRAM, TROUBLE, even TYPE O NEGATIVE, as well as the death rock and post-punk stuff which has been a huge part of my listening palate for just as long as black and death metal…
