SONG PREMIERE - Mavradoxa - Maple

February 28, 2019
Today, we are pleased to release the very first track from Mavradoxa’s upcoming album “Nightmarrow”!



Laurentian Black Metal band Mavradoxa have recently reemerged having completed work on their third album, “Nightmarrow”. “Maple” is the opening track on that album and as you’ll hear, wastes no time at all before hitting you with an onslaught of momentous energy and a visceral spirit that covers you in a shroud of atmosphere.

The spirit of the album is rooted in the cycle of bloom and decay. It juxtaposes the purity of nature and the encroaching venom of urbanity. It contemplates the futility of technological advancement. It questions what would become of the planet if we continue down our current path into annihilation, if it would be left a hollow shell, or if new life could ever bloom in the soil of our remains.

We are also pleased to reveal the album art for Nightmarrow today, crafted by Dylan Garrett Smith, an artist whose work similarly conjures humanity's relationship and growing distance with the natural world.



“Nightmarrow” will be released on May 2, 2019. 
The album, as well as new merch and bundle packs will be made available to pre-order soon!

Nightmarrow Tracklist:
1 - Maple (7:41)
2 - The Carrion Shade (9:25)
3 - Nightmarrow (9:34)
4 - Rustling Leaves (1:45)
5 - Black Crystal Snowfall (10:57)
6 - Umbra (3:40)
Total Length: 43:05

ALBUM PREMIERE: Mavradoxa - Lethean Lament

June 22, 2017
Mavradoxa's album "Lethean Lament" can be streamed in full thanks to Invisible Oranges



Too often atmospheric metal exists as glorified background noise. Maybe some bands intend for their records to serve that purpose, and maybe turning riffs into soundtracks is entirely the point. Either way, though, I don’t like it. Riffs, screaming and fast drums demand attention. Too much of this style exists for a new release to not command some kind of authority.

Upstate New York’s Mavradoxa have a c...

Ave, can you introduce your band to our readers? – When was it founded and what style of music do you play, etc.?

Nival and Lux created Mavradoxa in early winter 2016. The band is a realization of Nival’s dream to create a meaningful and emotive sound, playing on twin themes: the spellbinding strength of Nature, and the absolute desolation of modernity. We would prefer to resist being c...
