Hostile Media Signs Drakonis For New EP "The Great Miasma"

Northern Irish extreme metal quintet Drakonis has signed a deal in blood with Hostile Media which will see the extreme metal act release a new record entitled "The Great Miasma."

Guitarist Saul McMichael (also of Irish pagan metal outfit Waylander) comments, "Signing to Hostile Media for this release is a significant mile stone in the bands career. We’ve always believed in what we do, and to have a label share that belief is more validating than words can describe. We knew we had a good chance at getting picked up by a label when it came time to release our first album, but to be picked up for an EP was something we never expected. So here marks the start of our journey down a hopefully successful, yet bloody path for both band and label."

"The Great Miasma" is set for release on December 1st and is a story driven concept EP spanning three songs. Each song takes the listener through a different chapter, following the ritualistic sacrifice, possession and wrath of a young girl to appease an ancient god. Each song will also be accompanied by a music video, released out of sequence. Only when all three videos have been released and played in order, will the story become clear.

The track listing for the EP is as follows:

1. The Great Miasma
2. Let Us Pray
3. Queen Of Swarms

Drakonis focuses heavily on the "live spectacle," blending a mixture of contemporary black and death metal, to create something without the limitations of one genre. Not wanting to work to a strict template, the band dips in and out of many styles to create music which is both atmospherically uplifting, yet devastatingly brutal.
