Below is our complete Excommunicated news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Chad Kelly, producer and CEO of Underworld Records, recently tapped Jonathan Joubert to write and perform on Excommunicated's debut album, "Skeleton Key," which will feature members of Borknagar, Catholicon, Suture, and guest appearances form Andy La Roque (King Diamond) and Vincent Crowley (Acheron). Excommunicated commented on the album:
"Skeleton Key is a death/black metal album which tackles the corruption of the medieval Catholic church. The music is thought provoking and dark, which pulls this listener into moments of contemplative destruction. Lyrically, Skeleton Key is not your run of the mill black metal record. These guys are scholars on the subject and are meant to be taken seriously."
Jonathan Joubert also added, "I have always been a fan of black metal, though many times I find the lyrics tend to be written just to frighten parents and shock people. Excommunicated does more than shock people. It strikes at the heart of entire movement and culture that denies its history and hides its dark side. Skeleton Key is an album that sheds light on what the masses tend to overlook. I am proud to be a part of it."
