NEWS: Antropomorphia launches new single, "Crown Ov The Dead"
OFFICIAL: On February 24th, AntropomorphiA returns with their latest collection of gospels of the obscene: Sermon ov Wrath. For a preview of the album, the new single, "Crown Ov The Dead" (featuring guest vocals by Dool's Ryanne van Dorst), can be heard below. AntropomorphiA singer/guitarist Ferry Damen comments: "The compositional approach ov this audial incantation was very instinctive, and although it wanders from the traditional framework, it is the continuation ov our path, and breathes AntropomorphiA to the fullest."
It's been more than two decades since AntropomorphiA's EP debut, Necromantic Love Songs (1993), emerged from the depths of the Dutch death metal scene. A sonic relentless force filled with crushing grooves, Necromantic Love Songs became an underground cult classic, and was followed by the Metal Blade Records releases Evanglivm Nekromantia (2012), Rites ov Perversion (2014) and the re-release of Necromantik Love Songs (2016).Today AntropomorphiA's uncompromising vision, unapologetic attitude and ambition has taken them down a path within their malicious darkness, resulting in a third full-length, entitled Sermon ov Wrath.
Featuring artwork by 13 Candles Tattoo/Madeleine Hoogkamer, Sermon ov Wrath was once again recorded at drummer Marco Stubbe's Aftermath Studio, and then mastered by Tore Stjerna at Necromorbus Studio, giving the album a savage, crushing sound. As their most diverse record to-date, Sermon ov Wrath contains a bewitching atmosphere, furious groovy riffs, and merciless brutality - proving that the band is not afraid to experiment within the genre.
"I honestly believe this is by far our most diverse and strongest album to-date," comments vocalist/guitarist Ferry Damen. "'Sermon ov Wrath' has a veil of our poisonous roots breathing throughout the whole album while never compromising when it comes to expanding our sound or musical horizon. I think the song 'Crown ov the Dead' is an excellent example of that. We turned into a different beast and I think people will hear that."
