Today, blackened death metallers Scarificare premiere the new track “Occult Radiance” . The track hails from the band’s highly anticipated third album, Tilasm, set for international release on April 20th via Hellprod Records.
A work of both crushing heaviness and mystical atmosphere, Tilasm is the album where Scarificare truly come into their own. Theirs is a sound that skillfully ranges black metal, death metal, and doom alike, never settling for easy categorization nor schizophrenically losing focus. Across seven songs in 45 minutes, the listener is taken on a cosmic ride like no other, each movement as memorable as the last. They say the third time’s a charm, and indeed it is for Scarificare with Tilasm.
Scarificare are a Portuguese extreme metal band formed by Crusher (bass/vocals), Sothis (drums), and Quetzalcoatl (guitars) in Oporto in late 2006. The main purpose was – and still is, even though the lineup changed a lot – to make extreme metal music inspired by all cosmic forces, the wisdom of ancient pagan religions, and consequently in ourselves.
