The EP will feature two exclusive, twisted-death-black metal tracks, mixed at Vamacara Studio (Order of Apollyon, the 135, Khaos Dei). Commented by the band:
"Chaotic and weak lives, from ashes to ashes, from dust to dust. What appeared so intense and bright soon fades away into oblivion and bitter haze. Human fears this black hole beyond us sucking our lives… There is a way to win, as She did. To give a life a meaning, by following a direction. This direction is Lower. It requires madness, by losing sanity key. With a new strength to overcome death. Through Sacrifice." More...

The French maniacs of Vorkreist are back with their 4th album, "Sigil Whore Christ" - coming out April 24th in Europe and May 22nd in North America.
The band refers to the album as "catchy as hell, brutal as fuck, and still with this overwhelming feeling of sickness." Agonia Records also commented:
"Judging that a little dose of adrenaline can’t harm even the most sensitive ears, we sincerely hope that the vile and unclean metal that VORKREIST presents will rip your hearing and get your adrenaline going on rapidly!
"Recorded at Drudenhaus (Alcest, Les Discrets), the band managed to reach the exact sound they needed for their release: both powerful and dirty. This is truly a new age – comments Vorkreist - new label, new logo, strongest identity. VORKREIST is about to make a decisive step in its career." More...
Agonia Records has issued the following announcement about signing French metal act Vorkreist:
"We are proud to announce signing of French based Black/Death Metal band VORKREIST, featuring members of Hell-Militia, Blacklodge, Secrets Of The Moon or Merrimack to list just a few. Before the follow up of Sickness Sovereign will be unleashed some rarities will be eventually released on vinyl. We will keep you posted about future projects and their firm dates."
