Hegemon Streaming Full New Album

French black metal cult Hegemon is streaming new album "The Hierarch" online in full - listen in via the Bandcamp player below. Hegemon also had this to say:

"We, Hegemon, present to you 'The Hierarch' as the climax of our work throughout the last 20 years. With it, we are describing mankind's perception of reality from the first spark of light in this universe to the predictable ending of everything. 'The Hierarch' represents what humanity believes to know... which in truth is nothing!

"We all have always been living with lies and so it will be until the last star will extinguish. Hate and violence are all we brought to this world and as our perception of cosmos, chaos and order are only interpretations through our own eyes, we are in reality blind. We are wrong. And we are condemned."

Hegemon Streaming "Hatred From The Core"

Hegemon is premiering a new track taken from forthcoming album "The Hierarch," which has been scheduled for worldwide release on the 13th of November. The French black metal veterans are streaming their venomous song "Hatred From The Core: Tempus Incognito" below. Regarding the new track, the band comments:

"We have deliberately chosen 'Hatred From The Core: Tempus Incognito' as the opening track. The title says it all: humanity is full of hatred from its very beginning, in its cosmic roots, and since the inception of this universe. Violence is the essence of mankind as chaos has ruled ever since the primal spark set everything alight. We have been trying hard to establish order, but that has always only led to another pandemonium. We are morally and physically corrupted from inside as we fail to harness our seething nature. We are the sons of stars."

The album's track listing is as follows:

1. Hatred From The Core: Tempus Incognito
2. Interpreting Signs For War: Aruspicine (streaming here)
3. Elysean Expectations, Earthly Deceptions
