NEW ALBUM ANNOUNCED
(via Dark Descent Records):
After a five-year wait, veteran Dark Descent Records alumni Father Befouled return with Desolate Gods, their 4th full length offering of twisted and cacophonous death metal chaos.
Picking up where 2012’s Revulsion Of Seraphic Grace left off, Desolate Gods picks up the torch, infusing their influences into a suffocating and mysterious album of serpentine riffing and lurching, cavernous doom. Compounding that is a maturity - a sound evolved from the heavy-handed Incantation worship of before - to a distinct sound all their own.
In their 10 year existence Father Befouled has developed into a tried-and-true death metal machine, and Desolate Gods is the direct result of that practice: a visceral and violent expulsion of rotting death metal blasphemy. As much as the music of Desolate Gods is rooted in the influence of bands like Morbid Angel, Incantation, and Monstrosity, the lyrical direction pays homage to the ancient gods of death and chaos. The darkness that governs the universe and the pain that death creates.
Dark Descent Records will release Desolate Gods June 23 on CD and digital formats.
Recorded in various sessions in Atlanta, GA, between August and December 2016, Desolate Gods was mixed and mastered by Dan Lowndes at Resonance Sound Studio. Cover art by Alex Shadrin of Nether Temple Design.
