Perhaps one of the most awaited black metal albums of the decade, Divine Necromancy, by the band Phantom is set to be released on October 31 2013.
Phantom is a band that rose to prominence in the extreme metal scene and more importantly a band that is known for its interesting, to say the least, approach to music.
With unorthodox song structures and very dissonant psychedelic and hypnotic tones, Divine Necromancy is a stark departure from anything ever released in the black or death metal scenes.
It is common knowledge that extreme metal is generally considered the harsher and more brutal sub-genre of heavy metal.
In which case Phantom music would be the harsher and more brutal sub-genre of extreme metal.
While mixing sinister and abrasive riffs with despotic and borderline ritualistic drumming is a good description of the music on most Phantom tracks, notably on the album Divine Necromancy, you really have to listen to the Divine Necromancy album if you want to get a feel for how necrotic the work really is.
And since this album will be coming out in less than two weeks (on October 31), you will soon have a chance to listen to Divine Necromancy.
