One month ago we had the pleasure of premiering a decimating new song by the Polish band Neolith, a song named “Of Angel and His Orison” from the band’s new album (their fourth), Izi.Im.Kurnu-Ki. One good turn deserves another, and so today we are equally happy to bring you one more taste of this new record — an official lyric video for a song named “Enlil“.
The new song is yet another example of Neolith’s ability to deliver completely pulverizing blackened death metal. It begins slowly, with enormous groaning riffs and an immediately palpable atmosphere of frightful oppressiveness. And then the song erupts — a volcanic explosion of flailing riffs, hammering grooves, and primal roars and shrieks. The drumming punches holes through flesh at the speed of an automatic weapon, and just when you think the song can’t get much more destructive, a guitar solo ignites like a flamethrower.

When we premiered “Of Angel and His Orison”, I wrote that the music was completely electrifying. Well, this song is, too. Listening is like having electrodes jammed into your head with the power dialed into the red zone. You convulse, but it hits the pleasure centers so hard that you’ll want to take that charge again right away. Or at least that’s how I felt.
Izi.Im.Kurnu-Ki will be released by Non Serviam Records on March 2, 2015, and the album is available for preorder now at this location. Get ready to take the charge!
