Sarpanitum album set for release

Wednesday, December 17, 2014 3:47 PM PT

Official press release:

Once Birmingham UK-based now internationally-located atmospheric blackened death metal unit, Sarpanitum, who feature within their consuming ranks current and former members of Mithras, Lantlos and Tenebrous Aeon, will release their long awaited, second full-length and first for forward-thinking extreme metal perpetrators, Willowtip Records, this February.

Titled Blessed Be My Brothers, the ten-track follow-up to 2011's critically-fawned upon Fedelium EP was composed over a two-year period, tracked at Dreaming Studios UK by drummer Leon Macey (Contrarian, Mithras, The Senseless et al) and boasts a diseased fusion of traditional death metal, blackened guitar riff compulsions, and melodic atmospheres fit for devout supporters of Gorguts, Nile, Anata, Kataklysm, Morbid Angel, Ulcerate and the like.

Comments Tom Innocenti of the release: "Blessed Be My Brothers is true labor of love. The record maintains a blackened death metal sound but also incorporates more personal touches in terms of the music and lyrical themes. The song writing and atmospheric elements have progressed vastly since our first album, Despoilment Of Origin and Fidelium EP while still being recognizable as Sarpanitum. Listeners will notice a huge leap forward with regards to this album. Blessed Be My Brothers is a journey into the hearts and minds of those caught the turmoil of religious warfare. A subject that is as relevant today as it was over a thousand years ago."
