COSMIC PUTREFACTION Announce New Album “Crepuscular Dirge For The Blessed Ones”
Profound Lore Records is proud to announce the May 6th release of Milan based one-man death metal force COSMIC PUTREFACTION’s third album “Crepuscular Dirge For The Blessed Ones” on CD/Digital with vinyl edition following sometime in summer.
On “Crepuscular Dirge For The Blessed Ones”, sole mastermind Gabriele Gramaglia continues the COSMIC PUTREFACTION narrative begun on the previous album “The Horizons Towards Which Splendour Withers”, where the only survivor from an apocalyptic annihilation of a dying planet walks towards its withered horizons. On “Crepuscular Dirge…” this character ultimately finds an even more sorrowful truth at the end of his journey; one that shows the empyrean fall of man through the metaphysical world and the gods whom inhabit it.
Through “Crepuscular Dirge For The Blessed Ones”, Gramaglia establishes even more his own vision of death metal, this time enriching his multifaceted sound with widened atmospheres and a patina of omnipresent melancholy suggested by distant arpeggios, e-bow guitars and sometimes even synths organically blended with the relentless, ferocious riffs always present in this new effort. To cap off this layered effort, Gramaglia this time relied on drummer Giulio Galati (Nero di Marte, Hideous Divinity) to deliver an extremely powerful and dynamic performance behind the kit.
