Black Metal Duo Xenoglyph Unveil Full Length "Spiritfraud" Ahead of Release

Official Press Release:

Psychedelic, multi-instrumentalist, black metal duo,
XENOGLYPH are set to release the band's sophomore full-length titled, Spiritfraud, on July 15, 2022 via Translation Loss Records.

The black metal entity was founded from the necessity to create multi-dimensional art that transcends time and space. Compelled by their innermost desire to unrelentingly explore the furthest corners of its' potential, they have unveiled a masterful vessel, Spiritfraud - a harrowing and cosmic journey that unfurls cinematically while exploring the darkest depths of their musical prowess.


Today, the duo has unveiled Spiritfraud in its entirety, ahead of the album's July 15th release date. The album is streaming now alongside an in-depth interview with Decibel Magazine. About the release of Spiritfraud, XENOGLYPH shares:

"We wanted this to be not the "most evil" opus we could assemble, but rather the most musical and memorable effort we were capable of. We are more interested in invoking a certain emotional feeling (to awaken the populous) even if it is ambiguous or perplexing at first impression. Black Metal, which allows for the most layered and symphonic approach of all the metal subgenres, is merely our canvas, and we will continue using as many mediums as we see fit, to animate our vision into reality."


Six passages of intricate works, imbued with frost-bitten power, intrigue, and triumph, reveal a cosmic amalgamation of masterful and exemplary musicality. Spiritfraud is a vanguard opus that demonstrates a reverence for the ancient, as well as a fondness for the futuristic.

Spiritfraud will see a July 15th release via Translation Loss Records on 2 limited edition vinyl variants and digital. The album features stunning hand-painted artwork by XENOGLYPH. Pre-order is available now here.
