Nordic Mission are proud to announce the releasedate for Pantokrator‘s new album. Their 4th fullength album will be unleashed everywhere on December 1st this year. We have no doubt – this is their ultimate album! Their absolute highlight and a MONSTER of a metal beast! Death metal – melodic, yet brutal! The coverart for “Out Of Babylon” can be seen below. Are you ready?
Until now Pantokrator have released two new songs, ‘Crossroads’ featuring Jani Stevanovic (Miseration, Solution 45, Divinefire) and ‘Wedlock’ featuring C.J. Grimmark from the mighty and awesome band Narnia. The lyric video for both songs can be watched below.
Pantokrator‘s latest album “Incarnate” has been released in early 2014 under Rottweiler Records (US/Canada) / Soundmass (rest of the world).
Incarnate is far from Pantokrator’s first rodeo on the bucking bronco of brutal, bone-breaking music. Pantokrator have released several albums – Blod, A Decade of Thoughts and Aurum – along with the Songs of Solomon split and a spot on 2002’s Power From the Sky compilation, showcasing Sweden’s finest “new wave” of metal. Pantokrator are just that, in fact—a new wave—combining grinding, jarring blast beats that tear at the listeners flesh and rend their skin, while incorporating bone-splintering and skull-splitting slams alongside absolutely visceral, throat-shredding screams. The immense and nigh-unfathomable levels of heaviness and technicality Pantokrator bring to the table is the spitting image of their namesake: “All powerful and Almighty”. While elements of their A Decade of Thoughts are deep, pensive and brooding, they are only matched by the boundless, relentless aggression to be found throughout Songs of Solomon and Aurum, showcasing the true magnitude of the bands multifaceted and multitalented nature.
Pantokrator embodies their moniker by reigning miles above the likes of their metallic peers by melding superlative parts aggression, technique, and musical prowess. With the calm, serene and ethereal elements of their instrumentation clashing with their proclivity to punish the listener with moments of back-bending, spine-shredding brutality.
