Kentucky black metallers Anagnorisis have released several details surrounding their forthcoming album, Peripeteia. The new full-length serves as both a prequel (tracks 1-5) and sequel (tracks 6-8) to their 2013 album, Beyond All Light. The record is reported to be autobiographical in nature, detailing frontman Zachary Kerr’s childhood. A press release elaborates:
“Peripeteia is an honest and passionate autobiography of vocalist, and now protagonist, Zachary Kerr. The themes in the album have no apparent beginning or end as the record is composed to infinitely loop, repeating the dramatic emotions we all encounter in our own lives. Peripeteia is not only the culmination of the band’s legacy in the US black metal scene, but a story thirty years in the making, told through the heart-breaking lens of audio tapes from Kerr’s childhood, spliced throughout the album. Kerr writes, on the aftermath of his father’s death, “…when we arrived at my parents’ house, a tape recorder and two cassette tapes, dating back from 1982 through 1987, were sitting out on the kitchen table. One of the cassettes had printed on it a poor attempt of me writing my name, probably around the age of five…”
The album’s artwork, which is a photograph of Kerr as a child, and its track listing can be viewed below.
Peripeteia will be released on October 21.
