BESTIA ARCANA - To Anabainon ek tes Abyssu DIGIPAK
Official press release for the album:We are delighted to give deserved re-exposure to one of the finest records lurking in the underground: the debut album of BESTIA ARCANA, a deep eschatological epic created by Naas Alcameth (NIGHTBRINGER/AKHLYS) alongside current and ex-members of NIGHTBRINGER.
Recorded 2008 and originally released in 2011 by Daemon Worship Productions, To Anabainon ek tes Abyssu ("He who will rise from the Abyss”) features a still cutting-edge hybrid of chaotic, bombastic black metal and suffocating dark ambience infused with all-pervading endtime theology.
Like a stately melding of EMPEROR, PENDERECKI and LUSTMORD, this is the sound of adversarial visions from Giger floating in occult meditation above death, detritus and post-industrial ruin. BESTIA ARCANA are a sorely overlooked touchstone in both the dissonant and deep-space black metal canons.
This re-release retains the intriguing original cover courtesy of Worthless Endeavors but with an otherwise completely new layout.
