THE BOOT IS FIRMLY ON YOUR FACE NOW.

So, today's the day, the release of our first album of 2017. The first of many to come in this very busy time! Over the coming weeks, there will be a lot more revealed about our upcoming releases, but for today, the focus is on absolute hopelessness and dystopia.

"In a decaying society, art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay."

"A vision of our future dystopia is presented on 'Slaves of the Vast Machine", the new album from the Swedish Misanthropic Black Metal duo 'Obitus'. After their 2009 full-length "March of the Drones" and an EP in 2014 , they return with their most solid album yet! 

'Slaves of the Vast Machine' conveys human aimlessness and desperation amidst total social control with some brilliant icy riffs and dissonant tones. This is harsh progressive post-Black Metal that is relentless and chaotic from start to finish with some really solid tremolo-picking melodies, inexorable atmosphere, and a complete disregard for humanity. "

Une vision de notre avenir dystopique est présenté à travers ‘Slaves of the Vast Machine’, le nouvel album du duo black metal misanthropique suédois ‘Obitus’. Après leur album ‘March of the Drones’ sorti en 2009 et un EP en 2014, ils sont de retour avec leur album le plus solide à ce jour! 

‘Slaves of the Vast Machine’ exprime la désorientation humaine et le désespoir d’un contrôle social absolu à travers des airs froids et des sonorités dissonantes. Il s’agit ici d’un post-black metal à la fois brut et progressif, une suite d’idées qui déboulent et s’entremêlent du début à la fin avec d’impressionnantes mélodies de tremolo picking, une atmosphère inexorable, de même qu’une indifférence complète envers l’humanité.
