On December 1, Ascension Monuments Media will be releasing Leviathan‘s The First Sublevel of Suicide; the previously unreleased, 40-minute demo recorded between 2002 and 2003 that would serve as the basis for the project’s highly-influential debut studio album, The Tenth Sublevel of Suicide. This is the first time the demo has been made available for public consumption and will be the first of several planned releases from Leviathan via Ascension Monuments Media. Leviathan mastermind Wrest said the following regarding the unearthed demo:
“It is the chrysalis of the aural grotesque that tainted “The 10th Sub-Level of Suicide” album. A collection of the snap shots of a life ever slowly falling to pieces.”
In preparation for its impeding release, we at Svbterranean present you an early version of the caustic “Scenic Solitude & Leprosy”, which would appear on The Tenth Sublevel of Suicide later on. The raw, throttling and nearly cacophonous nature of the track is an absolute must-listen for black metal fans of all shapes in sizes. Check out the track below and pre-order the record here.
