As Beyond All Light — the second full-length to date, and first since 2007 from Louisville, Kentucky-based black metal horde ANAGNORISIS — impacts the human population today, the second song from the opus is now playing via mainstream media source Stereogum. The nearly six-minute “This Cursed Blood” writhes with some of the more vicious all-out black metal warfare the varied Beyond All Light offers.

Recorded by ANAGNORISIS and mixed by guitarist Zak Denham at his One by One Studios, and finalized by Brian Lueken at Decibel Mastering, Beyond All Light features two acts which encompass nearly fifty minutes of brand new material. The band’s classically-influenced but forward-thinking approach to black metal ventures into new territories on the new album with more orchestral and atmospheric elements penetrating their wickedest, blazing attacks yet. While comparisons to Nachtmystium, Emperor, Summoning and Drudkh can be made, ANAGNORISIS weave their own unique visions and configurations into their songcraft, creating engaging, epic anthems.
ANAGNORISIS is in the running with a host of other underground acts in New Noise Magazine’s current Underground Tournament Of Champions independent band competition HERE.
