Russian Post-Black Metal band SWAMPBORN reveals “Beyond Ratio” album cover!

The release of "Beyond Ratio", the debut album of Russian band Swampborn draws ever closer! Combining assertive (post) black metal with a powerful and solid, at times almost death metal sound, its music comes as a massive flow of energy, consisting of a flurry of drums, multi-layered guitar canvases, piercing melodies and expressive vocals, rusty and ominous like an apocalyptic sermon.

Today, we are pleased to be sharing the "Beyond Ratio" album cover, illustrated by Yag Mort and further refined by Nihil Design Studio.



The visual design of this release is conceptional, filled with metaphysical hints and allusions. Illustrations for each track reflect and deepen their themes, while the cover and inner art reveal reflections on everyday and beyond, transient and eternal, passed through the prisms of micro- and macrocosm. Enigmatic titles of songs unfold the lyrical themes of "Beyond Ratio" - existential horror, decay of urban life and metaphysical death of the soul.

Endowed with all the features described above, Swampborn's music is able to penetrate into the most hidden depths of the human soul, exposing its bleeding wounds and cleansing it in the merciless flame of the Absolute.

Swampborn will present its debut album “Beyond Ratio” on a 4-panel digipack with an accompanying 16 page booklet, loaded with illustrations from Yag Mort. 

The album will be released through Hypnotic Dirge Records on June 17, 2022. However, you won't have to wait too much longer to hear a taste of the record, as the first track premiere will be online next week!
