Premiere: "Crimson Waves of Autumnal Flame" on Pure Grain Audio:

Laurentian Black Metal band Mavradoxa returns with their second album “Lethean Lament” - an introspective and majestic album that is expansive, atmospheric, and melancholic. Releasing “Soujourners” last September, Mavradoxa’s two members Nival and Lux have quickly returned to Rotten Metal Recording Studio to record their follow-up “Lethean Lament.” The new album is perfect for dreary and rain-soaked days during solitary walks, or in any moment of introspection. Long progressive songs that flow with purpose where the atmosphere dictates and paints vivid stories in its movement and direction, the entire album encapsulates a whirlwind of emotion from raw carnal aggression, nature reverence, despair, longing, and bliss. “Lethean Lament” is honest genuine atmospheric Black Metal that carries on the tradition of bands like Agalloch, Alda, Waldgeflüster, Falls of Rauros, and Obsidian Tongue.

Recorded in the spring of 2017, this album is set for release on June 22 through Hypnotic Dirge in a 4 panel digipack with a booklet. Andy McGirr (Hubris, Ferus Din) contributed violins on the tracks “Cicadan” and “Across the Nival Grove” and Mark Welden (Blurring, ex-Warblade) added guest vocals to “Crimson Waves of Autumnal Flame”.

T-Shirts and stickers will also be printed and the designs will be unveiled soon!
