LA MUERTE To Release Sortilegia Album On Friday
November 24, 2022, 2 days ago
Belgium-based gothic metal/industrial band, La Muerte, will release their new album, Sortilegia, on Friday (November 25) via Consouling Sounds.
Four years after their unanimously acclaimed self-titled album, La Muerte continue to push their boundaries with Sortilegia. The album is again produced by La Muerte and Déhà (Wolvennest, Mongolito).
According to Didier Moens, aka Dee-J, the time passed allowed all the members to grow together, as a band: “Nothing is calculated with us…,” says Didier. “Even if the music evolutes, or explores different paths, the spirit and the vision remain the same. We are still rough and edgy as ever. It is still impossible to categorize or explain exactly what we do. In this album, we still find the ingredients, but also the ethics, that make La Muerte so peculiar and radical."
Sortilegia? A scorching soundtrack to the Apocalypse. La Muerte returns to battle with an even more intense, massive and cohesive burner than their 2018 self-titled album. Once, in response to a journalistic question, Dee-J and Marc du Marais called their work "morbid surrealism," which defined their intentions better than any other label. But if you really have to categorize, why not: "Borderline Rock": always pushing the blade a bit deeper, and keeping it sharp. In the band's cauldron, a decapitating mixture of psychedelic, metallic and noisy sounds still simmering. La Muerte has lost none of its raw and fierce radicalism.
