Year 2019: Heavy Metal undertakes its first descent into the hidden Pulse of reality, the quantum particle acausal Chaos, where biases of man and dogmas of macrocosm and gods don't belong...

After unleashing their soul-consuming debut self-titled 7"EP via Sentient Ruin earlier in 2019, multinational industrial atmospheric black metal entity Decoherence finally return with their highly anticipated debut full-length album "Ekpyrosis", unravelling tenfold the darkness and sonic enormity of their debut 7" and leaving the listener helpless to decay before a massive sonic singularity as they manipulate dark matter and eviscerate darkness to open a passageway to a realm beyond. In a manner not dissimilar to the territory already tread by pillars of the genre like Blut Aus Nord and Darkspace, on "Ekpyrosis" Decoherence juxtapose cold martial industrial drum patterns with surreal and disorienting electronic noise soundscapes and walls of mangled, angular, and dissonant guitars to create a monstrous alien landscape and transport the listener to an otherworldly dimension, deep into the darkest and most remote and inhospitable corners of the cosmos, where dark forces of unfathomable destructiveness and cataclysms of unimaginable magnitude dominate an inhuman realm devoid of any light or warmth. An obsidian monolith of sidereal terror and hallucinating claustrophobia, "Ekpyrosis" is a sonic event horizon where concepts like coldness, emptiness, vastness, and nothingness obtain an entirely new meaning and are taken to an incomprehensible extreme to instate into the listener a feeling of widespread fear, complete loss of self, and of permanent and consuming dissolution.
this band so far can do no wrong. this is an album people will be talking about for years and years to come. it's an instant classic. it has everything you want in a death metal record. this is a must have album and my album of the year in 2019 kittyandpooch
