Invisible Oranges is hosting the exclusive premiere of the massive thirteen-minute video for “Chained At The Helm Of Eschaton,” by Austin, Texas progressive death/black metal outfit, HAUNTER. The band’s Discarnate Ails LP sees release next week through Profound Lore Records in conjunction with the start of their European tour.

The follow up to 2019’s Sacramental Death Qualia LP, Discarnate Ails showcases HAUNTER as one of the most enlightening and dynamic bands within the present-day progressive death/black metal movement and one of the pioneering prospects of the scene. HAUNTER has tapped into the next level unparalleled with their most complex, advanced, and their most furious and heaviest release to date. The three epic chapters that form the album weave through intricate, dissonant, and vitriolic passages that find the notable balance of challenging melodious movements and parts while maintaining the band’s sense of creating epochal songs of triumph and mastery.

Mixed by Arthur Rizk and mastered by Dan Lowndes, Discarnate Ails features cover artwork by Elijah Tamu, additional art by 47_N_74D0 and Saprophial, and design by Chimere Noire.

Alongside their exclusive premiere of HAUNTER’s thirteen-minute video for “Chained At The Helm Of Eschaton,” Invisible Oranges’ detailed interview and feature on the band reads in part, “Discarnate Ails marks a major shift for HAUNTER towards immediate gratification. They retain the technically-demanding passages and free-form structures from Sacramental Death Qualia, but step out of the shadows and aim straight for the chin. There’s more meat to chew on, a higher riff density, and a heightened focus on tangible reflections rather than obscure sacraments.”
