VI, TEMPLE OF BAAL and THE ORDER OF APOLLYON reveal split trailer


French black/death metal artists VI, TEMPLE OF BAAL and THE ORDER OF APOLLYON have revealed an audio trailer for their upcoming 3 way split release on Agonia Records. The trailer is available at this link:

On March 31st, three of the finest French black/death metal acts – VI, TEMPLE OF BAAL and THE ORDER OF APOLLYON – will find their way into the winter-chilled turntabel’s, thanks to a new split release. Divided into three chapters, the recording will feature one brand new song from each of the bands, with a playing time nearing 25 minutes.

BST (Aosoth, ex-Aborted, The Order Of Apollyon and VI) can be thought as a link between all three band’s. Apart from being an active musician, he served as the producer of the upcoming split. With the exception of drums, all instruments were recorded, mixed and mastered at his own BST Studios. Drums were recorded at Hybreed Studios and Studio Vallet, respectively.

Tracklist:
Chapter One: “Trident Of Flesh” (The Order Of Apollyon),
– Caput Secundum: “Non Sum Dignus” (Temple Of Baal),
– Troisème Chapitre: “Aucun d’entre vous ne sera sauvé. Car c’est impossible aux hommes et tout est possible à dieu. Il ne va rien rester de vous, rien de votre nombre, de votre grandeur” (VI).

The split will be available in the following formats:
– regular black LP (with laser etching on side B),
– limited to 200 copies red LP (with similar laser etching),
– limited to 100 copies gold LP (with a patch and similar laser etching).

The new material will see all three bands plunge into their creative potential and will shed some light on what to expect from them in the future. In the words of the band’s themselves:

Being a part of this split along with Temple of Baal and The Order Of Apollyon was an opportunity for us to release a new single track. We thought we were done for a while with creating new music since the release of De Praestigiis Angelorum, but it appeared that we still had more to do. Expect something slightly different from what we’re known for. Expect something unique” (VI).

“Split releases have paved Temple Of Baal’s history through the years as special items in the band’s discography, done with special bands strictly chosen for their common views on Black and Death Metal as sacred works of Left Hand Path dedication. Once more, Temple Of Baal teams up with bearers of the Black Flame to bring a three-fold testimony of Faith” (TEMPLE OF BAAL).

“Joining forces with Agonia for a fresh new start for The Order, we deemed appropriate to release something special. We chose to share this one with artists that we respect not only as musicians, but also as genuinely devoted human beings. The song we wrote for this EP is also meant to give you a taste of what’s to come on our side in the near future” (THE ORDER OF APOLLYON).

VI to Re-Release Debut EP


French black metal newcomers VI, featuring current and ex-members of Aosoth and Antaeus, will re-release their debut EP, “De Praestigiis Daemonum”, on March 31st via Agonia Records. The re-release, re-mastered by M. (Mgła) in No Solace Studio, will include a new cover made by Adrian Baxter.

The line-up of VI is shaped by INVRI (Aosoth, ex-Antaeus) on guitars and vocals, BST (Aosoth, ex-Antaeus, The Order Of Apollyon) on bass and Blastum (ex-Aosoth, ex-Antaeus, Merrimack) on drums. Their music bestirs within the characteristic black metal niche developed by the said bands, with the addition of expanded guitar work, choirs and subtle sample parts. VI describes their music as “extreme, devoted black metal with illuminated chaos”.

INVRI commented on the re-release:

     “This first offering always meant a lot to us. This is where it all started. We keep listening to it wondering how we managed to release such a beast. 10 years later, we still dont get it. All went so fast, from the composing to the unexpected acclamation. It took years to compose something else, it was so intense and natural that we feared we could never do better. Re-releasing this EP is the opportunity for all of you to put your hands on it, and it was a good opportunity for us to refresh that old demon we cherish so much”.
     Working with Adrian Baxter, Kontamination Design and No Solace was such an experience. One more time with this release, everything went fast. All this worldwide team managed to provide a brand new face in only few days and we feel honored to see how much efforts have been put into this release while, few years ago, only a bunch of maniacs believed in us.
     We would like to thanks the Agonia team, for being a part of those. This release will now never die and will rise, and will shine upon us for the next decade and more to come.
     Ceux qui moururent dans la douleur ne se relèveront pas dans la joie”.

Tracklist:
I) Et maintenant je lui appartiens ainsi ma chair mon sang et mes actes lui sont dédiés.
II) Je me dresse devant le trône et j’attends mon jugement en crachant sur le livre de vie.
III) Si le sommeil de ma raison se fait trop lourd, je deviendrai le monstre qu’il aura tenté d’engendrer.
IV) Il n’y a pas de repos, ni le jour ni la nuit, pour ceux qui ont adoré la bête et son image et pour quiconque a reçu la marque de son nom.

Available formats:
– Gatefold black LP.
– Gatefold gold LP.
Digital.

Pre-orders will be available later this week at:
