Anagnorisis - Beyond all Light

Atmospheric and post-black metal are booming right now, and showing no signs of slowing down. Killer releases in the genre this year from Deafheaven and Altar of Plagues in particular have already been heralded as year highlights. From the looks of things, you’ll likely be able to add Louisville, KY’s Anagnorisis to the list of stand-out releases in the genre this year with their upcoming album Beyond All Light.

The album is being released independently on later this month, but we’ve got the first taste of the album via opening track, ‘Eulerian Path.’ This sprawling 7 minute track is dynamic and absolutely epic, capturing haunting atmospheres and reaching devastating peaks. Stream the track through the Soundcloud player below:

 

Beyond All Light is broken into two segments, each act featuring three massive songs overall encompassing nearly fifty minutes. The tracklist is as follows:

Part I

1. Eulerian Path
2. This Cursed Blood
3. Death Mimics Life

 Part II

4. Abyss
5. Bountiful Godless Life
6. Forever Night

The group has also unveiled their first entry in a series of behind the scenes videos, this time detailing the album’s conceptual inspirations:
