Out now! Pestilential Shadows - "Devil’s Hammer"

Pestilential Shadows is a black metal band from Sydney, Australia. Having played in local black metal bands since 1997, Balam founded Pestilential Shadows in 2003 with the aim of creating atmospheric and intense black metal, quickly establishing its reputation as one of the most innovative bands in the scene.

Throughout their career, Pestilential Shadows has consistently released music that pushes the boundaries of black metal. The band has remained true to their vision of crafting intense and atmospheric black metal, while also experimenting with diverse sounds and instrumentation. This approach has expanded the genre's limits and forged a distinctive sound that is immediately identifiable. Their music has been described as 'otherworldly' and 'haunting,' with their influence resonating across the black metal community.

2023 marks the 20th anniversary and heralds a new era for the band. The current lineup, featuring Balam, Basilysk, Krvna Vatra, and Mourn, is set to release their 7th album, 'Devil’s Hammer,' through Northern Silence at Last Gasp Studios. The upcoming album promises a swirling maelstrom of aggressive, melodic, and complex instrumentation and vocals.
