Down Under elite Denouncement Pyre are premiering their new track "Wounds of Golgotha" via Legacy magazine's website. The track hails from the band's highly anticipated third album, "Black Sun Unbound", set for international release on July 22nd via Hells Headbangers. Three years have passed since the release of their critically acclaimed "Almighty Arcanum", which saw these long-running Aussie tyrants evolving well beyond their black-thrashing beginnings and locate a near-perfect balance between aggression and atmosphere. With "Black Sun Unbound", Denouncement Pyre have perhaps found the balance - between not only aggression and atmosphere, but passion and poison, power and patience, sheer vengeful violence and spiralling night-sky melodicism - in the process delivering a potently black metal record which emphasizes both titular elements of that genre.
In fact, the album title itself bespeaks the brilliance brimming from the quartet here, as each of these ten tracks spills forth a blinding sensation of absolute occult energy, each distinct track distilled into a greater, wholly diabolical totality. Further evidence of such is compounded by the song titles, as well: among them, "World Encircler," "Transform The Aether," "Deathless Dreaming," and the telltale "Revere The Pyre." Fittingly, the production is clear and cutting without sacrificing an ounce of grit on which Denouncement Pyre have built their throne these past 13 years. Returning from a triumphant first North American performance at Maryland Deathfest last month, there's no better time to behold Black Sun Unbound!

A band statement reads: "Black Sun Unbound is the most challenging album we have created so far, and we have certainly ventured further into the inner darkness with the new material, through a long and demanding creative process. The writing and recording of this album involved a lot of experimentation, and we have seen a vast range of ideas included, more so than past releases; it is a different album to the first two. Expect new doors to be unlocked and old gods to be awakened!" A couple doors have already been unlocked - "Scars Adorn the Whore in Red" and "World Encircler" - and can be found HERE at Hells Headbangers' Bandcamp, where the album can also be pre-ordered.
