BESTIA ARCANA "To Anabainon Ek Tes Abyssu" [CD, Digipak]
2011 - Black Metal from United States
Recorded 2008 and originally released in 2011 by Daemon Worship Productions, To Anabainon ek tes Abyssu ("He who will rise from the Abyss") features a still cutting-edge hybrid of chaotic, bombastic black metal and suffocating dark ambience infused with all-pervading endtime theology. Like a stately melding of EMPEROR, PENDERECKI and LUSTMORD, this is the sound of adversarial visions from Giger floating in occult meditation above death, detritus and post-industrial ruin. BESTIA ARCANA are a sorely overlooked touchstone in both the dissonant and deep-space black metal canons.
