One-woman metal band, Marthe, has revealed further details of her upcoming debut album, Further In Evil, which drops via Southern Lord on October 20th.
An atmospheric and aggressive blend of punk and metal, Further In Evil sees Marthe shift from her musical background in the anarcho-punk scene and inspired by riot grrrl, crust and d-beat. The lyrics are full of rage and the music is full of strength; with Marthe promising an album that has the power of Bathory and the sadness of Tiamat, tinged with the stench of Amebix.
As a precursor to the album release, the one-woman band has shared her new video for “To Ruined Altars…”
Speaking about the album, Marthe reveals:
“The narrative of Further In Evil is “a journey into evil. I consider it an epiphany in growing armor to make myself stronger. The title means entering the gates of darkness, becoming cold and detached so as not to suffer anymore.”
On the subject of her lyrics, she explains:
“The source of many of the lyrics comes from a place of betrayal, and grief at losing “people who were central to me. “we are alone”, but expels it as a statement of empowerment, rather than sadness – “the strength is ours.”
