Witchrist Streaming "The Golden Ascent"

The Kiwi black/death barbarians from Witchrist today premiere the new track "The Golden Ascent," which can be heard below, thanks to Noisey.Vice.com.

The track hails from the band's forthcoming 12" MLP, "Vritra," set for international release on December 31st via Iron Bonehead Productions. Alongside Diocletian (with whom they share members) and Heresiarch, Witchrist are a part of a cabal of New Zealand bands bringing barbarity and savagery back into black/death metal, and they've proven their dominance with two uniquely challenging LPs, 2010's "Beheaded Ouroboros" and 2012's "The Grand Tormentor."

Witchrist Announces 12" MLP

Iron Bonehead Productions is proud to present an exclusive 12" MLP from Witchcrist, titled "Vritra" and due out December 31st. The label comments:

"Alongside Diocletian (with whom they share members) and Heresiarch, Witchrist are a part of a cabal of New Zealand bands bringing barbarity and savagery back into black/death metal, and they've proven their dominance with two uniquely challenging LPs, 2010's 'Beheaded Ouroboros' and 2012's 'The Grand Tormentor.'

"Ever restless, just like that beheaded ouroboros, and now with KzR from the mighty BÖLZER on vocals, Witchrist yet again flip the script and smash boundaries with Vritra. Compared to the hypnotic bestiality of their first album and the war-metal overload of their second, on Vritra, the quartet drive deep into eldritch grinding death metal. World-eating in the realm of chaos, Witchrist prove with Vritra that in battle there is no law, and proceed to grindcrush the listener into all that remains."

The track listing is as follows:

1. Haruspex
