Crucial Blast is preparing "Spectre Music Of An Antiquary," the out-of-print 2012 album from U.K. ambient black metal entity Emit, to be reintroduced to the population at the end of October. The label comments:
"The latest album of murky graveyard ambience, deranged synth, phantasmic dread and ritualistic black drift from this cult U.K. outfit, their first in nearly ten years is surrealistic, spectral music and nocturnal delirium transmitted from beyond the veil and steeped in the mysteries of old Britain, like some twisted, eldritch fusion of Fabio Frizzi, In Umbra Malitiae Ambulabo-era Abruptum, and 80's darkwave.
"A must-hear for anyone into the murky surrealistic blackness of artists like Reverorum ib Malacht (a band that has shared members with Emit in the past), Yoga, Occultation, Uno Actu, Utarm, and Dapnom."
No Clean Singing is hosting one of the album's bizarre, all-consuming passages. The seventh in this haunting ten chapter manifesto, "Beneath Carvings Linger," can be heard below.
"Spectre Music Of An Antiquary" will be available from Crucial Blast via digital download and digipak CD on October 28th. More...
