Indy Metal Vault is currently streaming Mors Vincit Omnia, the impending new full-length from veteran black metal collective, CRIMSON MOON. The stream comes in advance of the record’s official release date, Friday August 30th via Debemur Morti Productions.
Spewing forth eight tracks of propulsive occult grandeur, constructed in homage to Azrael, Mors Vincit Omnia is epic both musically and conceptually. Indy Metal Vault celebrates the band’s “infernal occult orchestrations,” and, “mythological themes revolving around necromancy, vampirism, and sorcery,” adding, “fans of the group will revel in the eight new hymns of unhallowed bleakness in honor of the Angel of Death.”

CRIMSON MOON was forged more than two decades ago in the US as the magickal solo black metal project of Scorpios Androctonus before relocating to Germany in 1998 and evolving into a full band of menacing distinctiveness. The band’s newest set of mystical hymns is expertly built from punchy second-wave black metal riffs, cathedral-sized hooks, cosmic synthscapes, organ adornments, and ritualistic choral incantations that are as catchy as they are cryptic. Driven forward by sterling session drum work from Blastum (Aosoth, Antaeus) and a bass-heavy Hybreed Studios production which achieves the perfect dynamism between power and ambience, obscure themes are illuminated in a devilish attack of bludgeoning and focused song writing. Mors Vincit Omnia features guest appearances by Proscriptor (Absu), Lord Angelslayer (Archgoat), Ixithra (Demoncy), and Phaesphoros (Kawir) who in addition to mixing the record also performs wooden recorder and artwork by Daniele Valeriani (Dark Funeral, Dissection, Archeron). Written under the influence of the dead of winter, the new album pays homage to the Angel Of Death. Fans of Cradle Of Filth, Ancient, Dissection, and Nightbringer pay heed.
