Mithridatic Announces Live Release, Posts Preview

In 2007, blackened death metal dark matter particles aggregated and formed Mithridatic. In 2015, the band unleashed the debut single "The Hunt Is On." In 2016, the band bursted immense blasts of dark energy with the debut "Miserable Miracle," followed by a full European irradiation with Nile and Melechesh and countless gigs. Thus, the creation of the new black hole you’re about to discover: "He Who Lies Underneath." A preview clip - featuring the song "Miserable Miracle" is available as a live video below.

Filmed with multiple cameras and professionally recorded in the hometown of Saint-Etienne, France, "He Who Lies Underneath" is a full concert that will plunge the audience into a whirlwind of a nauseating, oppressing and sickening experience through nine tracks retracing the band’s ten years-long career featuring not only songs from "Miserable Miracle," but also from "The Hunt Is On" and more.

In a time musicianship reaches unbelievable technical levels and technology helps any band sounding huge on stage, what makes a real difference is the ability for artists to create a real experience for the audience ; an experience that’s often sadly only based on visual gimmicks and an orthodox "Metal" imagery but few are the ones that, out of pure presence and thank to a razor-sharp song-writing exploring personal inner struggles and channeling psychological experiences, are transcending it all through a real live embodiment and create a nearly ritualistic atmosphere that will leave its mark on the listener’s mind.

Mithridatic is definitely one of these few gifted bands and "He Who Lies Underneath" is one of those captivating live experiences. The release will be available on most VOD and audio/video streaming/download platforms on January 19, 2018.

You’re not even ready.

The track listing is:

1. The Supply…
2. ...For Terror and the Crowd
3. Miserable Miracle
4. Hunting Fever
5. Dispense the Adulterated
6. Abraxas
7. Hell Compasses Points
8. Oxydized Trigger Sabotage
9. I Will Har More...

Mithridatic Drummer Goes For World Record

Kaotoxin Records just checked in with this statement about Mithridatic's drummer going for a world record on drum speed:

"While on his routine training, Mithridatic drummer Kevin Paradis decided to give the world record for double pedal speed drumming a try… and nailed it! This is of course an unofficial record, as the only witnesses were the camera and his recording DAW, but still incredibly impressive, and, comments Trey Xavier of GearGods.net who premiered the news: ]I have no doubt he could do the same with a drumometer!'

"The record’s rule aren’t about reaching unbelievable tempos, Kevin can definitely play way faster than 260 BPM, but about being able to sustain the effort and, in both configurations (1 minutes long at 260 BPM and 5 minutes long at 240 BPM), Kevin reached a staggering 1037 (current world record is 1034) and 4797 single strokes (current world record is 4595) respectively."

Mithridatic's virulent blackened death metal debut, “Miserable Miracle,“ was released on March 11th and quickly followed by a Europe tour with Nile and Melechesh. More...

Mithridatic Premieres Drum Cam Footage

French band Mithridatic - featuring Kevin Paradis (Melechesh, Svart Crown, Agressor) - has teamed up with us to exclusively launch a new drum recording video.

Check out the drum cam clip below of Kevin laying down the blasts for new album "Miserable Miracle," which is coming March 11th via Kaotoxin Records.

With "Miserable Miracle," Mithridatic aims to envision and explore the realms of terror, misery, pain, suffering, disease, madness and nihilism. This all comes through crushingly heavy music with hyperblasting drums, possessed vocals, lightning fast and razor sharp guitar attacks and an apocalyptic rumbling bass low end.

A full song titled "I Will Harm" can also be heard after the jump, and the album's complete track listing is as follows:

1. The Supply...
2. ...For Terror and the Crowd
3. Miserable Miracle
4. I Will Harm
5. Funambule Pénitent
6. Hell Compasses Points
