Horrendous unveil "Cult of Shaad'oah" from upcoming album, share tour dates in support


Official press release: 

Philly's filthiest and finest progressive death metal band already gave us a glimpse at their new album. Now, Horrendous are leading us deeper inside Ontological Mysterium with "Cult of Shaad'oah".

"Beat me back, but I'll keep on climbing!" That's how the band kicks off the album's second single. They're so eager to crack skulls that they're practically foaming at the mouth.

Prepare for brutal ascent, indeed. "Cult of Shaad'oah" is a blazing onslaught of bombastic, old-school death metal. It sounds like carving your way up Mount Doom with the evil sword from Soulcaliber. Cymbals crash and ping, while dueling leads race toward a fiery death.

Here's what the band has to say about "Cult of Shaad'oah":

"This song is a symbolic quest through the wastes of doubt and slumbering awareness. Its nameless hero ascends from the underworld to the heights of the gods, daring to penetrate the outer reaches of the universe itself and become master of all".

Ontological Mysterium will be released on August 18, 2023 by Season of Mist. Pre-save the album HERE.  Pre-order it HERE

Let your chariots ride this July, when Horrendous saddle up and smash the Southwest.
