Greek black metal outfit Varathron have announced the release of their sixth studio album and follow-up to 2014’s Untrodden Corridors Of Hades. The new record will be titled Patriarchs of Evil and will see a release via Agonia Records on April 27. The band had the following to say regarding the record:
“The time has come to deliver our new opus ‘Patriarchs of Evil’. A sinful sip of this unholy communion will lure you into an astral journey of absurd dimensions – with an awakening smell of the old era. This album is one of the finest pieces Varathron has ever unleashed. We promise a true heavy, blasphemous and unique masterpiece with Necroabyssious delivering his best performance ever. With glorious riffs, profound melodies and a solid rhythm section, this dark testament is to delve into. The time of the rejuvenation has come!! WE ARE FOREVER IMMORTAL!!”.
“Varathron are proudly spreading the mediterranean plague since 1988! 30 years have passed and we continue to worship darkness and preach the unholy word! ‘Patriarchs of Evil’ is not just a new album, it is a celebration and one of our greatest creations. Behold the 8 hymns!”
