12" Divinihility LP (Merge #2) #92119
Release Date: October 15, 2020
We've gone overboard yet again offering spectacular LPs in three different variants with colours pertaining to the stunning album artwork made by Adam Burke. We've used all of our experience to come up with these variants and while they the actual LPs are likely to differ from the mockups here, they're bound to look exceptional. Each variant is limited to 100 copies only and won't be repressed. They come in thick gatefold sleeves with silver embossing and UV lamination effects.
ATRÆ BILIS from Canada are ingesting the best elements of all the styles of death metal and spewing forth an amalgam that turns the genre inside out. There is no template for their kind of music. It's wildly unpredictable but remains coherent and catchy despite it all. It has traces of technical death, brutal death, dark death and even dissonant death, with a tinge of melody and atmosphere to top things off. This is an intense shapeshifter of an album that remains engrossing from start to finish, without losing the core sound and aesthetics. The album feels like an exercise in what's great about the genre without adhering to a particular style for too long and thereby sidestepping its trappings too. 'Divinihility' will mark a new chapter in engaging, furious, forward-thinking death metal that sets the tone for other similar-minded bands on the label such as DEPRAVITY, CUTTERRED FLESH, REPLICANT and more.
