Spit On Your Grave to release "Arkanum" on April 12th!

Arkanum is the forthcoming full length from the Mexico based death metal ensemble SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE. Due to be released on April 12th, 2024, this album marks a new chapter for the quintet.  

The forthcoming release, Arkanum, draws thematically on mystical elements and each track is inspired by a different tarot card. The band share, "w[e] chose 9 cards from the major arcana, (The magician, The Devil, The star, The High Priestess, The moon, The hanged Man, The tower, The hermit and Justice)".

On the meaning behind Arkanum, the band explain, "[t]his conceptual album tells the process of a mental detox, talks about an internal struggle to restore your inner self, where your demons surface and everything you believed in is questioned, that moment when you realize that for years you have followed someone else's lead. You've had enough and decide to leave everything behind." They continue, "[it's] about losing yourself by being influenced by someone else and the struggle to wake up from that 'reality'. Centering the lyrics in this inner fight with yourself, involving depression, anxiety, mistrust, feeling unfairly judged by everyone and having no help around."
