New Releases From Transcendental Creations

The Divine Antithesis
Release Date: February 7, 2011

Formed in 2003, DE MAGIA VETERUM is the magickal creation of one Mories (Gnaw Their Tongues, Ophiuchus, Pompidou, Aderlating, Astral et al). Bearing only a small resemblance to his other musical endeavors, DE MAGIA VETERUM represents a far more chaotic outlet for the multi instrumentalist; one that prefers to communicate the grand mysteries of death and life through an utmost violent and mesmerizing medium. Over the span of seven years, the band has released three demos, two EPs and two full-length albums. In May 2009, Transcendental Creations released DE MAGIA VETERUM‘s Migdal Bavel debut which offered up 37 minutes of chaotic, raw, technical, esoteric black metal. Underground metal blog From The Dust Returned out it best in dubbing Migda Bavel “a raw as fuck, personal release that delves into the mental anguish of one of Europe’s best kept black little secrets.It’s a revolutionary album that will appeal to fans of Leviathan, Xasthur and perhaps the more chaotic side of Blut Aus Nord. Mandatory listening for those that wish to challenge their perceptions of extremity, or simply ruin a good day.”

On February 7, The Divine Antithesis, will once again guide you through Samael’s seas of madness. This new album serves as a sequel to the piece of lunacy that was Migdal Bavel, with more intricate musical arrangements and patterns.

Release Date: February 7, 2011

Something inherently foul runs in the waters of the Friesland region of The Netherlands; it’s called THE BEAST OF THE APOCALYPSE. Their second offering of audio darkness seeks and explores the realm of the One, the Source, the Ultimate, that which the ancients called Henosis. H.T. Mozes and S. Serpentijn’s, raw-to-the-bone, primitive black metal is once again displayed in full-force and accentuated by passages of grandiose, celestial ambiance. The band dig deeper into the soil of past cults and ancient mystics’ interpretations of the mystery of Henosis. Moreover, each CD features a download card for the band’s unreleased The First Four Trumpets full-length. THE BEAST OF THE APOCALYPSE take the torch of veteran black metal bands Beherit, Samael and Archgoat and carry it proudly in these dark times of the new millennium.
