The Skinny: Pennsylvania-based black metal act Chaos Moon will release an extended digipak CD version of the latest EP Amissum on March 18th through Hellthrasher Productions and now are streaming the whole album via Bandcamp.
Created and solely instrumentally performed by A. Poole (of Krieg, Martröð, Esoterica, Skáphe, Lithotome) with a little vocal contribution from E. Baker (Manetheren), this new EP captures the band’s trademark, densely-layered black metal sound in its most ethereal form. Written and recorded between 2012-2016, Amissum stands as a collection of tracks that were not intended to be included on any full-length album. Compared to the original version, self-released digitally in September 2015, the CD edition will contain two previously unpublished bonus tracks – one being from the same session as the rest (Resurrection III), the other brand new (Amissum). The cover photo was taken by H.V Lyngdal (Wormlust).
