A perfect, sickening balance between abyssal, disassociative chaos and an undeniable physicality as if punishing you for simply existing. This will pull your skin off slowly and force you to see what's underneath.
Originally released on CD in early 2017, Aversio Humanitatis' tyrannical and gargantuan masterpiece "Longing for the Untold" endures an inevitable second skin molt transforming into the true beast it was meant to become and assuming its final harrowing form as we bring you and enhanced re-release on vinyl and tape of this staggering and monumental black metal opus, now re-packaged with three bonus tracks from past splits and EPs as the B side and with new incredible artwork. With “Longing for the Untold” this Spanish band have created a colossal behemoth of technically intimidating and sonically imposing progressive black metal that lunges forth toward the listener with crushing force, levitating out of solid darkness - its mass and shape breath-taking and awe-inducing as it projects its monstrous silhouette against total darkness, resembling the stygian singularity of an inescapable black hole. Reminescent in style and execution to the darkened and cerebral craft of Icelandic black metal bandslike Zhrine, Svartidauði, Misþyrming, and similarly wretched black metal anomalies like Skáphe, and Deathspell Omega, and enhanced by the muscular build of dark death metal bands like Ulcerate, Abyssal, and Gorguts, “Longing for the Untold” more than a thing, is a place and time where the power of sound literally devours the senses turning perception into a smoldering and swarming void of sensorial awe and of transcendental sonic disintegration.
