26th February 2021 is the date that Ontario Canada’s Plague Weaver have set for their bleak debut full length offering “Ascendant Blasphemy“. Originally birthed as the solo project of multi-instrumentalist RM with a session vocalist, he is now joined by partner in crime JC who takes care of lyrics and vocal arrangements as they combine Black Metal roots with Doom inspired atmospheres. We first came across the band when we reviewed their sophomore EP “Through The Sulphur Eyes” and judging by first single “Nothing Is Sacred“, this new release promises to be a special one.
Plague Weaver shares their expectations for the record’s reception: “We think fans who have heard the previous EP will enjoy this album. ‘Ascendant Blasphemy’ is an evolution, no doubt. Definitely more aggressive, and more riff-driven overall, without abandoning Plague Weaver’s doom-inspired roots on songs like ‘In Exitium Caeli’ and ‘..of Quivering Doves’.”
