If you’re in the mood for some seriously good Black Metal, then look no further than Toulouse, France’s group, Insane Vesper. Birthed unto this blackened planet in 2002, this gruesome foursome has slowly and craftily evolved their sound and show over the past decade+. Now, with their second full-length album, LayiL, looming – it’s due out via Art of Propaganda on July 1st – shit’s about to get even more chaotic. Check out the exclusive premiere of LayiL and pre-order your digital copy at Bandcamp and via www.art-of-propaganda.de directly.

Said the the band’s guitarist, Arggon, of the new album, LayiL: “You maybe felt it this impression of the end of times right? As the world crumbles all around us, enlightening the failure of humanity, precipitating itself to the abyss, yes? And to celebrate this we’d like to share with you the second Insane Vesper’s album entitled ‘Layil’, the vast shadow foreseen from ages in the shape of the most magnificent godess of all times. Join us in reverence towards LayiL, enjoy!
