Merrimack Wields "Apophatic Weaponry" With New Song Stream

Merrimack is today revealing the first sinister song taken from forthcoming fifth full-length album "Omegaphilia," which will be released on June 9th, 2017 via Season Of Mist. The pitch-black track "Apophatic Weaponry" can be heard below.

Merrimack comments: "For this song, as on the whole album, we wanted to come back to something more rooted in the 90's. With a less complex structure, and a sound not as modern and claustrophobic as on our latest albums, 'Apophatic Weaponry' still has our characteristic moody atmosphere with some crawling mid-tempos riffs. This is especially noticeable on the second half of the track.

"Our lyrics are dealing with the special connection between beings and their faith, even though it is constructed on a void trying to fill in another vacant space of nothingness. The divine cannot be observed, demonstrated, except by its consequences. In the end, this is the definition of faith as opposed to reason. This concept of negative theology is a mystical approach towards the divine that attempts to describe it through the impossibility of describing it. Eckhart. Jacob Böhme and most of the German mystics tried to increase their faith with such notions."
