Profound Lore confirms the early October deployment of Purifying Blade, the confrontational second album from Richmond, Virginia-based black/death duo ANTICHRIST SIEGE MACHINE. The album’s track listing, cover art, and lead single “Victorious Legions Of Satan” have been issued.
ANTICHRIST SIEGE MACHINE was formed in 2016 as an alliance between RZ and SB. Through extensive touring along the east coast and multiple releases, the band has solidified their place as a violent force to be reckoned with. Each effort has further developed the duo’s sound, enhancing the barbarity of previous releases.
The storm now approaches, and ANTICHRIST SIEGE MACHINE is prepared to release their second full-length, Purifying Blade. Sustaining the unhinged violence on display on 2020’s Filth Of The World EP ANTICHRIST SIEGE MACHINE rises victorious in the temple assaulted; each track on Purifying Blade is a weapon wielded by wickedness and hatred directed at the heart of Christendom. Faces of black evil, shields hardened with the cracked ribs of the dead.
