Acherontas Announces New Album Release

Greece's Acherontas has issued the following announcement about completing the recording of "Vamachara," the band's new album:

"After 183 hours of recordings,the new opus of Acherontas 'Vamachara' is in hands of Agonia Records. After many changes in line up for the good of the band, new contracts with labels & months of working the music & the philosophical concept behind, for us this was a great challenge of will to overcome our previous releases and rise our art in other dimension of creativity and spirituality.

"I am proud to announce that the goal had achieved! For sure, this is the most complete
& professional release of the band these 15 years of existence. Now Darkness has a different form...

"Vamachara streches back to the buried past, regressing back when the female archetype was worshiped through the Cult of Vama, the falsely so-called excremental, cast-out, left overs of spiritual practice, labelled as such by unaccomplished followers of the Solar Gods. The lunar waters shall possess the soul essence with the blood current of immortality, pushing the adept towards self excellence through the imbibation of the nectar of Salvation that is Amrita, through ordeals of black Al-Khemy. The vultures on infertile grounds of the desert cry LA ILAHA ILA ANA, and you shall kneel to drink from the cup of the fornication of the priestess-either dust or fire. Enter the Womb of the Black Moon and be reborn.

"The new Acherontas full-length features 7 hymns of glorious black metal, featuring 2 tracks by Scorpios Androctonus. Out through Agonia Records on 31 of October 2011 in Europe & USA. It will be out as: double gatefold LP, digipack CD, and special merch as zippers, hoodies & tshirts will take place. Let the feathers of Abraxas reflect the function of Samsara."
