Decibelmagazine.com is currently streaming the title track off THE BEAST OF THE APOCALYPSE‘s harrowing Henosis full-length, released earlier this year via Transcendental Creations. 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.

It is with this album that the band dig deeper into the soil of past cults and ancient mystics’ interpretations of the mystery of Henosis. 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.
