Minotauro Records has set November 10th as the international release date for Begerith's highly anticipated second album, A.D.A.M.
Originally digitally self-released this year, Begerith's A.D.A.M. is deservedly now finding a physical release. Native Russians who now reside in Poland, Begerith create a masterful, mesmerizing whirlwind of black/death majesty. Theirs is a highly considered and ceremonial thrust, taking the potent physicality of death metal and the bleak atmosphere of black metal and consequently creating a stark tapestry of technique and terror. Rendered in powerful, Technicolor hues, A.D.A.M. aims to penetrate the listener deeply and decisively.
Begerith were founded in 2003 in the far eastern region of Russia. Currently, the whole band is working and living in Poland. In 2013, Begerith released their debut album, My Way to the Star..., which received remarkable feedback among the metal media. Thus emboldened, during 2014-2015, they worked on what was to become their second album, A.D.A.M., in cooperation with the Polish studio HERTZ under the guidance of the Wieslawski brothers. "We put a lot of our powers and means into this album," they say of A.D.A.M., "and what is most important – deep philosophical ideas and technical musical conception." They then engaged top artists and designers such as Denis "Forkas" Kostromin, who is known for his works with Behemoth, Paradise Lost, Fushitsusha, and many others, and the artist Valnoir Mortasonge from French art group Metastazis.
Now, A.D.A.M. emerges as a work of malevolent elegance and dread. Behold the rise of Begerith.
In the lead up to its physical release, A.D.A.M. is currently streaming at Begerith's Bandcamp HERE.
