Azooma Reveals "A Hymn Of The Vicious Monster" EP Details

The release date for the debut EP from Iranian death metal band Azooma has been set for June 15th through Xtreem Music and will be entitled "A Hymn of the Vicious Monster." Check out the advance song "Encapsulated Delusion" in the player below.

Azooma frontman Shahin Vaqfipour commented on the concept: "We really like the idea of telling a story throughout this EP, we want each song to be unique but all of them to relate to each other and complete each other. We wanted to create something new and at the same time, staying true to the roots of Death Metal and its traditions.

"'A Hymn of the Vicious Monster' is about a normal person who seems to be a victim of the situations he is in, but eventually it becomes clear that if the conditions are right, he can turn into the monster which he thinks he is a victim of.

"It's the nature of mankind. If he has the opportunities, he can turn into something evil which he thinks he would never be and do some vicious deeds. Everyone has this potential, but the true power and purity is not to let this nature, this essence grow."

The EP was mixed and mastered by Iranian producer Ehsan Imani in Mixter Blaze Studio and the artwork was created by the young and talented artist Shahryar Shervin. Shahin comments:

"Shahryar Shervin the one who does the artwork, is a great talented person. He spent so much time with the band during the process of making this EP, discussing the ideas and he really understood and discovered what was on our minds and his work reflects what we want to say visually. We really appreciate what he did on the artwork."

The track listing is as follows:

1. Preface
2. Chapter I: Self-Inflected
3. Chapter II: Eridanus Supervoid
4. Chapter III: Encapsulated Delusion
