Polish blackened death metal miscreants Azarath have announced their signing with Agonia Records. The band is expecting to release a new album this April with the label. In the meantime get more details on the record deal after the break.
From The Press Release
Described by Blabbermouth.net as a “demonic mutation of Krisiun and Behemoth with shades of Immolation”, AZARATH stand up to their wicked name. The band’s death metal is crisp, black, and while it possesses the charm of their American counterparts, it remains open-minded and organic. This should not come as a surprise, considering the band’s impressive line-up and cemented position as one the the best Polish acts of the genre.
AZARATH crept from the shadows almost two decades ago, by the will of Inferno (of longtime Behemoth fame) and then-members Bruno and D. Six albums later, the band’s line-up is shaped by the said Behemoth drummer, together with Bart (Armagedon, Damnation) on guitars, Necrosodom (Anima Damnata, Deus Mortem, ex-Infernal War) on vocals and guitars, as well as Peter (ex-Lost Soul) on bass.
2009 was a breakthrough time for AZARATH. In May, the fourth full-length, “Praise the Beast” was unleashed upon the world via Agonia Records. The group has decimated the audiences at such events as Inferno Festival (Norway), Devilstone Fest (Lithuania) and Party.San Metal Open Air (Germany). In October, the horde was part of the “Nowa Ewangelia” tour on which it spread terror with Behemoth inter alia.
The congregation recorded the “Holy Possession” single and the fifth album entitled “Blasphemers’ Maledictions” in 2011. The latter can easily be perceived as AZARATH‘s most sophisticated work to date. While maintaining the sense of venomous blasphemy, the record adds a multitude of new qualities to the band’s sound such as sinister atmosphere and eerie melodies. The Poles supported this effort on the domestic tour with the legendary Bulldozer, Witchmaster and Deus Mortem, as well as Hatefest 2011 featuring Triptykon, Marduk and Kataklysm, and numerous European festivals.
After rejoining forces with Agonia Records, AZARATH is ready to shed some blood upon the altar once again in 2017.
