NEWS: Thanatopsis warn of the upcoming “Initiation”!
California’s Thanatopsishave unleashed a lyric video for the title track off their upcoming debut album “Initiation”, inked for 23rd October 2020 via Extreme Metal Music to follow their four independently released demos between 1993-1997. After a hiatus, three quarters of the band has reunited along with the new addition of drummer Jason Borton (Jungle Rot, Arkaik) to offer their debut full-length, which features past recordings that are given a second life and a chance to be heard by a broader audience along with new unheard material, recording at Trident Studios with renowned producer Juan Urteaga (Exodus, Testament, Machine Head).
The band comments: “The title track of the album, a banger of a song made for headbanging, with technical elements as well. From hidden cults to overt street violence, this song details the initiation into a gang connected to the cult, by means of shooting human targets. Once again, an infiltration ensues. It has been a long time in the making and we are very excited to present to the world the first official full-length Thanatopsis album “Initiation”. This album contains timeless songs that fans, both old and new, will appreciate. Bringing our sound to the masses has been a collective dream of ours for a long time. In a scene that is saturated with bands, we are proud to release something that is unique in character to the metal world at large.“
