The Swedish death metal band Pantokrator is celebrating International Listen to Pantokrator Day (not a joke, a holiday celebrated by their fans on May 6) today by releasing a brand new song ‘Day of Wrath’. Listen, purchase and download exclusively via their official bandcamp site. All sales will go to the recording of their next full length album.
Pantokrator‘s latest & long- awaited album “Incarnate” has been released Jan. 21th. 2014 via Rottweiler Records & Soundmass..
“Incarnate” … was a long journey – 7 years – of writing, composing, editing and recording. It is an album that in itself is something all new, yet at the same time has the intensity of their heavy-hitter “Aurum” [2007, Whirlwind Records] and the “Heritage of Blod” [2003, Rivel Records]. Musically, this Swedish band is now heavier but more melodic, brutal but catchy, dark but progressive. With skill and talent, “Incarnate” mixes thrashy riffs with a mantle of death metal and a heart of doom. It is moody extreme metal cloaked in death metal – their best and most diverse album. Add to that top-notch production and a final mix by Jani Stefanovic and you get Pantokrator at the top of their game audibly, lyrically and visibly.
Pantokrator‘s ”Incarnate” has the heaviness of the earth, the speed of the wind, the depth of the waters and destroys like fire!”
