The German black metal band Paria were spawned in the year 1995 and since then have grown ever more toxic and terrifying through a sequence of demos and splits, ultimately collected in a foul 2011 compilation (fittingly named 11 Years Of Blood, Cum & Satan), and then three full-lengths, the last of which was 2013’s Surreal Satanist.
On the 25th of December, W.T.C. Productions will add to Paria’s horrific legacy by releasing a new EP, entitled Knochenkamp, and today we bring you the premiere of its third track, “So Far From the Hidden God“.
This new song is inhumanly savage, a pulsating typhoon of scarifying abrasion that’s wild and destructive in its uncontainable fury, a sonic manifestation of slaughtering chaos, with the electrifying, toxic energy of a nuclear power plant gone critical. The vocals are just as distorted and terrorizing as the music — vile, hate-vomiting, and thoroughly bestial.
As if the dense maelstrom of sound weren’t unnerving enough, the song also includes a vibrant, rippling lead guitar melody that’s alien and pestilential enough to put a chill down your spine. But together with the surging pulse of the percussion, the song’s demented melody manages to be seductive — as does the song as a whole. For all its ugly, unbalanced viciousness, it will exert a magnetic attraction to those listeners in search of catharsis through violence.
Knochenkamp will initially be released on MCD, with a vinyl edition to follow. Here’s the track list:
02. Pergamentikkch Nemesis
03. So Far From The Hidden God
04. Cyclikkch Ovogenesis
05. Call From The Grave (Bathory Cover Version)
