Ekstsis – Xthonic pathways (MCD)
“Some memories will never fade
Some wounds will never heal
Only death can obliterate
The monuments of pain”
“Xthonic pathways” confesses five songs of analog mixed ekstatic black metal in the vein of bands from early era to more recent influences. In particular Watain, Ondskapt, Ascension come to mind. Featuring ex-Paria vocalist Desecrator and a sublime cover artwork done by Ceethava the 25-minute long lasting EP submerges into a poisonous path through the abyss.
