NEWS: Mithridatum stare into the abyss…
Featuring Lyle Cooper and Marlon Friday of Abhorrent fame and Geoff Ficco, known for three years in The Faceless including the recording of “Autotheism“, Blackened Dissonant Death Metal trio Mithridatum will release their debut album, “Harrowing” on 3rd February via Willowtip Records. The album’s first single which just so happens to double as its opening track “Sojourn” is one of five to make the grade. Pre-orders are available over at bandcamp.
The band comment: “Through mercurial waves beneath the moon’s mournful glow, a trinity of incarnate beings that embody Mithridatum have conjured forth the entity known as Harrowing, an auditory pilgrimage traversing a gloomscape leaden with dissonance, despondency, isolation, entropy… into the abyss.
The name Mithridatum refers to the practice of achieving immunity against poisoning through self-administered, sub-lethal doses. The allegory is inescapable in its illustration of the unrelenting immiseration all incarnate beings must endure, willing or unwilling”
