French sowers of intelligent, distinctive and airless Black Metal, AOSOTH, revealed details of their forthcoming full-length album out on Agonia Records. The release entitled IV:Arrow In Heart will make its worldwide debut on April 16. More details can be found below.
The new album is a natural improvement over bands previews release, entitled III, which already was “a major step forward for Aosoth in creating their own distinct sound” (Sputnik Music).
Members of the band commented that IV:Arrow In Heart holds yet a bigger spiritual meaning:
“We’ve spent such a huge amount of time on defining a darker identity, yet open to a wider range of influences. Those tracks still haunt us, as delivering them was a painful and excruciating experience, and left some of us even physically wounded… Which gives that album even more of a spiritual value, as it involved a form of sacrifice.”
They went on to add:
“This fourth full-length release is without a doubt a great step forward for us in term of music writing, and sound.”
Pre-order IV:Arrow In Heart (6 original tracks, 56 minutes) now exclusively on the Agonia Records webshop
When the album hits stores, a re-release of AOSOTH’s II and III albums will be available for the first time on vinyl.
