ANTITHEIST Release Debut EP; Stream Available
January 2, 2013, 7 years ago
Cooper City, FL-based doom/black metal act ANTITHEIST have released their debut EP, entitled Heretical Musings.
The band consists of Zachary D. Randall on guitars, vocals and synth and Ken Hayward, formerly of IMPURITY on bass, guitar and vocals and features Lars Wagner of THE HITTING ROOM who performed and recorded drums for the EP.
Each of the tracks on the EP, styled as "a pentalogy of rituals for the rational mind", was crafted by Zachary D. Randall and Ken Hayward during the months of February through November in 2012 of the Common Era. Randall’s guitars are symphonic in their complexity and bone-crushing in intensity. Hayward’s bass creates unity while transcending the typical role of the black metal bassist by adding depth through harmony with Randall’s guitars.
"The Empty Throne takes me to that world of EMPEROR, DISSECTION and DISMEMBER - blackened death metal - I love it. More please!", enthused Mike Campbell, guitarist in progressive metal outfits SUNS OF THE MORNING STAR and MANIFEST TEST SUBJECT.
Heretical Musings tracklisting:
'Ritual of Becoming'
'Bridging the Gap'
