King Leviathan To Unleash Debut Album 'Paean Heretica', On 5th August



King Leviathan, hailing from Brighton UK have gathered quite the following since releasing their critically acclaimed 2015 E.P 'The Shrine', spreading their "Black Mass" to Bloodstock Open Air and several iterations of Mammothfest as well as touring the UK with the likes of Wretched Soul, Abhorrent Decimation and Meta-Stasis.

The south coast act have become known for their combination of extreme thrash and groove metal vibes with hints of black metal, providing whirlwinds of guitar shreds. On top of that Adam Sedgwick‘s vocal capability has vastly improved since 'The Shrine', he makes switching from a power singing voice to furiously aggressive shouts seem effortless.

Now, the blackened thrash four-piece have just announced details for their eagerly awaited debut album, 'Paean Heretica', which has been two years in the making. It is King Leviathan's darkest and heaviest work to date, encompassing themes of loss, abandonment, blind faith and what comes after death.

The album is a nine track, 45 minute collection of 'psalms' which were recorded and mixed by Paul ‘Win’ Winstanley at Brighton Electric Studios, mastered by Alan Douches (Mastodon, Revocation, Motorhead, Baroness) and with art by Alex Norman (Guns 'n' Roses, Opeth, Katatonia, Sylosis).




Tracklist for 'Paean Heretica':
I. Primitive Baptism
II. Sanctification
III. Kingdom
IV. Agony
V. Doomsayer
VI. Coffin Swallower
VII. Harrowing Eyes
VIII. Like Wolves To The Throat Of The Lion
IX. The Grand Congregation

‘Paean Heretica’ will be the first release via new independent label Infernum Records and will be physically available on August 5th, 2017.
