Acheron releases new album 4.March

Kult des Hasses
Listenable Records
4 March 2014
ACHERON has been releasing their distinct brand of underground music to the metal community for over 20 years. Musically, the band’s style is hard to label, since their music has elements of black, death, thrash, doom and straightforward heavy metal within it. Lyrically, ACHERON has been known for producing extreme Satanic/Anti-religious anthems and songs that deal with a variety of dark topics; including the occult, misanthropy, and sexual perversion. It has been four years since the release of their last album “THE FINAL CONFLICT: Last Days of God.” But the band has recently signed with LISTENABLE RECORDS and has recorded a new album entitled “KULT DES HASSES”.

Throughout his career, founder Vincent Crowley has worked with a number of well-known musicians in ACHERON. Current and former members of MORBID ANGEL, DEATH, ICED EARTH, ANGEL CORPSE, IMMOLATION, DIMMU BORGIR, NOCTURNUS, INCANTATION, EQUINOX, ESTUARY and SATHANAS have spent time in ACHERON. The band has put out a number of releases on a variety of record labels, including their debut album “RITES OF THE BLACK MASS”, which has become an underground cult classic.

Crowley has been joined by longtime drummer Kyle Severn and guitarist Art Taylor. Also appearing on the recording as a guest lead guitarist is Ricktor Ravensbruck (WOLFPACK 44, ELECTRIC HELLFIRE CLUB and WOLFEN SOCIETY). Guest vocalists include death metal icon Kam Lee (Ex-MASSACRE, THE GROTESQUERY and BONE GNAWER), Jim Lippucci (SOULLESS), John McEntee (INCANTATION/FUNERUS), Jill McEntee (FUNERUS), Zdenka Prado (ESTUARY)and Ash Thomas (ESTUARY/FAITHXTRACTOR). The album was recorded in Cleveland, Ohio at BAD BACK STUDIOS and mixed and mastered by the mighty Dan Swano of UNISOUND (Sweden).

Band founder Vincent Crowley said, “Even though this album ended up taking much longer than we thought to get done it ended up being something that the whole band is very proud of releasing. We had a very specific idea for this release and I really think we hit the nail on the head. ACHERON wanted to get a true late 80s/Early 90s sound on this album and avoid the over-produced approaches of today’s metal. The songwriting is catchy, the bass and drums are pounding and there is tons of shredding guitar solos all over the album. I know ACHERON fans old and new will really enjoy this musical assault.”

The lyrics stay true to ACHERON’s dark appeal. The song “JESUS WEPT (Again and Again)” is about twisted visions of torturing Christ within nightly dreams-states. “RAPTURED TO DIVINE PERVERSION” is a story of ritualistic sexual debauchery. “DAEMONUM LUX” pays homage to the infamous encounter Aleister Crowley had with the demonic entity known as Choronzon. “THY FATHER SUICIDE” is a tempting tale of how the reaper lures the weak into taking their own lives. ”SATAN HOLDS DOMINION” is a powerful anthem of satanic reign. “WHORES AND HARLOTS” pays tribute to the ladies of the evening or as ACHERON would say the “Daughters of Lilth.” “MISANTHRPOIC RACE” is an interesting song taking us to a time when man evolves into a world of anarchy and chaos. “ASPHYXIATION (Hands of God)” reflects the highly anti-religious views the band adheres to. “CONCUBINA DO DIABO” can actually be taken as sort of a twisted love song about the Devil and his earthly concubine. And last, but not least, “DEVIL’S BLACK BLOOD” is dedicated to all the ACHERON fans worldwide. (The band usually toasts their crowd with Jagermeister, which they have nicknamed Devil’s Black Blood, at the end of their shows.) The legend lives on! Come experience the unholy force that is ACHERON!
