“Adveniens” is the impending new studio offering from Italian death metal unit HIDEOUS DIVINITY, which features within its ranks current and former members of Hour Of Penance and Aborted. Set for release on April 28th, the follow-up to the band’s critically-lauded “Cobra Verde” was recorded, mixed and mastered at Stefano Morabito’s 16th Cellar Studio (Hour Of Penance, Fleshgod Apocalypse etc.) during the Autumn of 2016, includes a rendition of Sinister’s “Embodiment Of Chaos,” and finds HIDEOUS DIVINITY offering up their darkest manifestations yet.
In advance of its release, today Revolver is pleased to host newest single, “Ages Die” for public consumption. Issues guitarist Enrico Schettino. “This is our all-in choice as first single from Adveniens, our new manifesto, our latest epiphany, the limbo between what has been our previous life and the future that awaits HIDEOUS DIVINITY — and bear with us, there’s much more to see… and hear. This is the soundtrack to smoking ruins we witness before being carried away, just like the Angelus Novus, just like the Adveniens himself. Experience with us the future of the past.”
“The entire album is a reflection on history and time,” notes Schettino, “on the succession of futile ages, on the role of the poet as soothsayer and witness of the winds of time erasing each one of these ages from the face of the earth. A reflection on Walter Benjamin predicting the ‘adveniens’ of David Cronenberg, on Professor O’Blivion predicting an era when ‘all of us will have special names.’ Adveniens is a violent reflection on art.”
Forged in 2007, HIDEOUS DIVINITY quickly established itself as one of the strongest rising European death metal acts thanks to their signature brand of technical yet gloomy classic styled death metal. Often compared to the likes of Nile, Hate Eternal, and Immolation, the band’s two Unique Leader releases – 2012’s Obeisance Rising and 2014’s Cobra Verde – led to a successful European tour with Cannibal Corpse and Krisiun in the Spring 2016 as well as appearances at some of the most esteemed European extreme metal fests during the last few years. The band will be playing several festivals this Summer including Colony Open Air in Italy July 23rd and Stonehenge Festival in the Netherlands on July 29th. Additional performance to be announced in the coming weeks.
