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!
