French black metal crew VI, featuring current and ex-members of Aosoth and Antaeus, is now streaming a song from the band's impending EP re-release. "De Praestigiis Daemonum" will arrive on March 31st via Agonia Records, and the EP has been remastered by M. (Mgla) in No Solace Studio.
Listen to the opening track "Et maintenant je lui appartiens ainsi ma chair mon sang et mes actes lui sont dédiés" below. Guitairst / vocalist Invri comments on the upcoming re-release:
"This first offering always meant a lot to us. This is where it all started. We keep listening to it wondering how we managed to release such a beast. 10 years later, we still dont get it. All went so fast, from the composing to the unexpected acclamation. It took years to compose something else, it was so intense and natural that we feared we could never do better. Re-releasing this EP is the opportunity for all of you to put your hands on it, and it was a good opportunity for us to refresh that old demon we cherish so much.
"Working with Adrian Baxter, Kontamination Design and No Solace was such an experience. One more time with this release, everything went fast. All this worldwide team managed to provide a brand new face in only few days and we feel honored to see how much efforts have been put into this release while, few years ago, only a bunch of maniacs believed in us.
"We would like to thanks the Agonia team, for being a part of those. This release will now never die and will rise, and will shine upon us for the next decade and more to come. Ceux qui moururent dans la douleur ne se relèveront pas dans la joie." More...
On March 31st, three of the finest French black/death metal acts - VI, Temple Of Baal, and The Order Of Apollyon - will find their way onto winter-chilled turn tables, thanks to a new split release.
Divided into three chapters, the recording will feature one brand new song from each of the bands, with a playing time nearing 25 minutes. The split will be available through Agonia Records.
VI comments: "Being a part of this split along with Temple of Baal and The Order Of Apollyon was an opportunity for us to release a new single track. We thought we were done for a while with creating new music since the release of De Praestigiis Angelorum, but it appeared that we still had more to do. Expect something slightly different from what we're known for. Expect something unique."
Temple Of Baal adds: "Split releases have paved Temple Of Baal’s history through the years as special items in the band’s discography, done with special bands strictly chosen for their common views on Black and Death Metal as sacred works of Left Hand Path dedication. Once more, Temple Of Baal teams up with bearers of the Black Flame to bring a three-fold testimony of Faith." More...
French black/death metal bands VI, Temple Of Baal, and The Order Of Apollyon are currently at BST Studio recording material for their future split, which will be released on Agonia Records in late 2016.
BST can be thought as a link between all three band's. Apart from being an active musician, he serves as the producer of the upcoming split, which is being recorded, mixed and mastered at his own BST Studio (except for drums which have already been recorded at Hybreed Studios).
VI commented: "Being a part of this split along with Temple of Baal and The Order Of Apollyon was an opportunity for us to release a new single track. We thought we were done for a while with creating new music since the release of De Praestigiis Angelorum, but it appeared that we still had more to do.
