Necronomicon premiere new album track "Singularis Dominus"
Canadian blackened death metallers NECRONOMICON are now premiering the second new track from their upcoming album ‘UNUS’. The record will be released via Season of Mist on October 18, 2019. The song “Singularis Dominus”, is streaming below:
Montreal’s premier blackened death metallers are back with ‘UNUS’, the crushing and cinematic follow up to 2016’s ‘Advent of the Human God’. With each record NECRONOMICON has created in the span of their 31-year career, the band has steadily evolved in both sound and power; ‘UNUS’ is no exception to this.
Inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s legendary grimoire, NECRONOMICON formed in 1988 by founding guitarist and singer Rob “The Witch” in the deep, northern part of Canadian province Quebec, Fjord of Saguenay. Since then, the band have carefully released each full-length without haste, allowing them to perfect every nuance before unleashing their sonic assaults upon the masses. In 2019, NECRONOMICON was presented with a certificate of honor for over 30 years of service via H.S. production/Tommy Tremblay, and the people of Saguenay Lac St Jean, making them the second band after VOIVOD to ever receive this honor.
‘UNUS’ is a searing cacophony of blistering riffs, machine-like drums, and a symphonic ambience, culminating in a sound that calls to various metal icons such as DIMMU BORGIR, SEPTICFLESH, BEHEMOTH, and DEICIDE. The record combines the furious elements of death metal with the orchestral prowess of black metal, creating the perfect synthesis of both genres. Standout tracks like “Paradise Lost” and “Singularis Dominus” only solidify NECRONOMICON’s ability to continuously produce high quality metal that’s just as dark and brutal as it is elegant.

FOSCOR comment on the full album stream: “We have finally reached the moment of truth, and ours is the privilege of sharing which probably is the most thrilling and emotional album we have been able to create in our entire career.
As hard as it is to describe it (tragic might be the best fitting adjective), be now witnesses and judge on your own. We have tried to reach the most intense and delicate album possible, where music might speak loud to the world, from intimacy in a new form of dialogue.Visual things must acquire a new secret appearance.
Listen, taste it with calm and hopefully enjoy! Share it if you like it and let us know what you think of it! Thanks from the bottom of our hearts to all the people involved. May darkness be tragic”.
