Epitimia's new album 'Faces of Insanity' is now available!



The latest album from the three piece atmospheric black metal/post-rock band from Epitimia is now officially released and available to order from their label Hypnotic Dirge Records. In addition to the CD version which is available for the label's website, the full album, entitled Faces of Insanity has also been made available for free streaming in its entirety at Hypnotic Dirge's bandcamp page where you can also purchase the digital download for $5.00. 

Combining an intriguing blend of atmospheric post-rock, and depressive black metal, this is a well-written, unique and innovative album which definitely sees a strong progression from past Epitimia albums - To the non-exisiting shades, and Four Truths of the Noble Ones. Throughout the album, the songwriting shows a band with a strong capability for providing heavy doom metal, experimental ambience,  raw black metal catchiness, and a deep melancholy which plods along with purpose throughout the album's duration added onto by a cacophonous wall of harsh vocals courtesy of vocalist, K. and occasional female vocals from M.  

Band members say: “With the every new album we try to improve the sound quality, to add new fresh tunes to our music, to improvise with the atmosphere. In our music we do like quotation from classical masterpieces, so if you are careful listener, you will find many interesting bright moments in our works”.
