The eighth opus of the hermetic coven of ACHERONTAS is hereby revealed, under the title and haruspex of Amarta. Set for international release on the 31st of May via W.T.C. PRODUCTIONS, it is an album that feasts for the 20 years of the ACHERONTAS coven (1997-2017) by embracing the solar traditions, lunar sorcery, and traditionalism as a revolt against the modern world and the Compromise Genre.
ACHERONTAS' Amarta is a web of visionary vibrations, consisting of the revolting force of overcoming the bounds and the powerful spark of creation, continuing the Formulas of Reptilian Unification as a second part. The band are proud to have among them the great individuals Naas Alcameth and Indra breathing a fiery essence in their new work. The fire burns higher now, as the omens are set to become reality.
The philosophy of empiricism that has been forged throughout the coven of ACHERONTAS' history is now more radiant than ever. Withstanding a duration of 45 minutes and a unique meditative-yet-dynamic atmosphere, the new revelation is set to uphold the standards of the past and open wide the artistic horizons to the future. A strong return to the roots of ACHERONTAS and the legendary soundwaves of the '90s era blend with an innovative orchestration that signifies the magical work of Amarta.
After several magical journeys during the last decade, having led the innovation of the genre by using many meditative ritualistic parts, this time the Devil's Art is summoned by the ACHERONTAS coven within the creation of a straight black metal album, rejecting the trend of an oversaturated scene that blindly joined the line of ritual ambient genre to attract the sheep with hollow visions. This is a revolt against the modern genre of extreme music, an artistic extremity to shutter every disbelief, a new oracle. Keep the fires of burning skulls high! Lepaca Lucifer!
