The Skinny: Today, Australian black metal cult Pestilential Shadows are premiering the new track “Fragments” via SoundCloud. The song hails from their highly anticipated new album, Ephemeral, set for international release on October 31st via Seance Records. One of Australian black metal’s longest-running and most revered forces in the underground, Ephemeral retains Pestilential Shadows’ signature poetic heaviness and melody but twists the dagger deeper into the soul.
Ephemeral is gritty and raw, driven by heart-wrenching emotion and fathomless despair. It quickens the blood with bitter poison and, like its namesake, reminds us that life is fleeting – merely a transitory state between birth, death, and nothingness. So, as surely as the scythe falls indiscriminately on young and old, rich and poor, know that death touches us all.
Ephemeral Track Listing:
02. Mill of Discord
04. Sorrow of Tongues
05. Hymn of Isolation & Suicide
