SARGEIST: “Feeding The Crawling Shadows” Album Due Later This MonthWednesday, 5th March 2014
Finnish black metal legends SARGEIST will release their fourth album, Feeding The Crawling Shadows, on March 31st via W.T.C. Productions for the CD version, with a gatefold vinyl version to follow at a later date.
More than just a quintessentially black metal album title, Feeding The Crawling Shadows is a veritable raison d’etre for these modern black metal legends: With faith and devotion, through ritual and necromancy, SARGEIST feed the blackest, most Satanic essence at the core of black metal and, in turn, wield its clandestine powers with sorcerous might.
But while predecessor Let the Devil In was indeed hailed far and wide as a masterpiece, the coven of SARGEIST is always lurking where no light dwells, brewing potent spells more diabolical than the last, and this solemn commitment is played out across the ten tracks that comprise Feeding The Crawling Shadows. Instantly recognizable as Sargeist – and particular, the malign riff-majesty of the ubiquitous Shatraug (HORNA, BEHEXEN, et. al) – here, the quartet go a concertedly rawer route, but with no sacrifice in quality. If anything, their freezing landscapes penetrate the soul that much deeper. As such, SARGEIST have once again topped themselves, delivering yet another masterpiece of purest black metal magick in Feeding The Crawling Shadows.
