Majestic Downfall will release "...When Dead" through Pulverised Records this coming August 7th, 2015. The label had this to say:
"Further stretching the boundaries of the blackened doom / death genre beyond what is deemed as traditional, Mexican doom-sayer Majestic Downfall unleashes what is probably the most tormenting album in the group's discography to date with '...When Dead.'
"Ensorcelled by the mournful bliss of doom and yet raising the chalice for black metal dissonance, '...When Dead' is a celebration of the two seemingly unbendable genres enwreathed as one, and the result is an iniquitous atmosphere marred with sublime melodic doom passages and the caustic nature of black metal scowl."
The album was mixed and mastered by Tore Stjerna at Necromorbus Studio, Sweden (Watain, Demonical, Repugnant) and the track listing is as follows: More...
Mexico's Majestic Downfall has inked a record deal with Pulverised Records. The label had this to say:
"Pulverised Records is immensely pleased to welcome Mexican doom-strosity Majestic Downfall! Fronted by chief doom-commander Jacobo Córdova, whom also splits his alter-ego as Mr. Jacko in death metal act Zombiefication; Majestic Downfall places its musical direction in 90's doom / death territories with some twists, inevitably causing a very unique clash of darkness, sorrow and a primal sense of aggression. Majestic Downfall is currently working on the upcoming full-length record, details on the new album shall be announced again later in the year."
Regarding Majestic Downfall's signing, Jacobo Córdova stated: "I have followed Pulverised Records since the early days, so it is truly an honour to release the new Majestic Downfall with one of the leading underground metal labels in the world. Many of you who already know the band, will be surprised with the many new elements that have been added to the music but still, the core will be the same as always; Doom / Death misery! Can't wait for this collaboration of doom to take place and thanks again to Pulverised for believing in Majestic Downfall."
Pulverised Records A&R Manager Calvin Chiang also states: "Having known Majestic Downfall a while back but the initial impression of what we heard from the band's previous efforts really was a pleasant surprise because Mr. Jacko does have a split personality! As some people might know that we are pretty big fans of this melancholic doom / death style; the torture of funereal-drenched riffs searing through, the turmoil of lengthy songs droning continuously and simply that feeling of utter misery after listening to an entire album, Majestic Downfall nailed down every aspect of what we love about this genre and we think that the new album will be yet another grief-stricken bludgeoner."
One-man Mexican doom metal project Majestic Downfall, run by composer Jacobo Cordova of Zombiefication, will be releasing it's second full-length album, "The Blood Dance," via Chaos Records on January 9th. This album follows on the heels of 2009's "Temple of Guilt." It will feature the following tracks:
The Blood Dance
From Black to Dead
Army of Salvation
An Untravelled Road
