Australian experimental black metal act Arkheth announced the upcoming third studio album entitled "12 Winter Moons Comes the Witches Brew," which is set to drop on February 20, 2018 via Transcending Obscurity Records. Check out a teaser clip in the player above.
Sinuous, haunting and bizarre, Arkheth's music is extraordinary. There has been experimental black metal bands, but this is something else entirely. It's a micro-fusion of all the different styles the subgenre can encompass, brilliantly strung together in a twisted, but seamless, manner. It requires rare ingenuity to create music that is both discordant and melodic. The addition of saxophone only ratchets up the bizarre, adding color to the unhinged madness. Virtually peerless and transcending boundaries, this is black metal that is gorgeous in all its demented, intricate design.
