Albums of the Month – February 2015

Here’s our shortlist of the albums of the month for February 2015.

Acherontas – Ma IoN (Formulas of Reptilian Unification)

Acherontas has always been some kind of mysterious entity to me, and despite their last offering Amenti already being close to 2 years old, it still offers a fresh perspective with each listen. As though Amenti weren’t a sufficiently epic release, Ma IoN (Formulas of Reptilian Unification) builds on the style that the band has come to be known for, resulting in what is perhaps their most engaging and intriguing release thus far in their career.

ACHERONTAS Unveils Details Of ‘Ma-IoN ‘Formulas Of Reptilian Unification”

W.T.C. Productions sets February 27th as the international release date for ACHERONTAS’ highly anticipated fifth album, “Ma-IoN ‘Formulas Of Reptilian Unification'”. Since their metamorphosis into a new entity in 2007, these Greeks have staunchly upheld the magick ‘n’ mysticism of classic, second-wave Black Metal. Over the course of four, increasingly ambitious albums – capped by “Amenti – Ψαλμοί Αίματος Και Αστρικά Οράματα”, released in 2013 by W.T.C. to international critical acclaim – ACHERONTAS have explored vast vistas of the imagination with a potently kaleidoscopic style of Black Metal that ably bridges traditionalism and the Avant-Garde.
