|Hellthrasher Productions just released the debut EP from Poland's Ars Magna Umbrae in digipak CD format. Self-released digitally in February 2017, Through Lunar Gateways can be summed up as an occult maelstrom of ominous and atmospheric yet hostile black metal. A true manifestation of the Chthonic forces of Death and a sonic portal to the Nightside. Features guest chants by Hekte Zaren of Adaestuo.
"The music relies heavily on dissonant and disorienting melodies with a spectral cast, creating chilling atmospheres of terror and torment. Nightmarish visions swirl about the music both when the band is in the throes of a bestial blood frenzy and when it simply feels like the music is sailing into a haunted void or on the brink of a mental breakdown. The variation in the vocals between deranged panther-like shrieks and unsettling wails (as well as operatic female vocals) is another strength in a staggeringly strong debut." (NO CLEAN SINGING)
