about

After hunkering down to record this winter, Laurentian Black Metal band Mavradoxa has completed work on their third album, Nightmarrow, following 2016's Sojourners and 2017's Lethean Lament. Mavradoxa's third album, although related to the tonal atmosphere and character of previous albums sees the band developing and intensifying their song-writing ability crafting simultaneously cohesive yet unpredictable songs with a progressive hue that is still rooted in Atmospheric Black Metal.

Nightmarrow is a meditation on the isolation and hopelessness of our age (particularly in the realm of the urban), and the consequences of technology and voracious consumption of resources. The nightmarrow, the specters here are the distillation of our negative qualities: the interminable urge to consume, to control, and the chaos that results, this malevolent part of our human nature lurking in all the woe and decay we've created.

The spirit of the album is rooted in the cycle of bloom and decay. It juxtaposes the purity of nature and the encroaching venom of urbanity. It contemplates the futility of technological advancement. It questions what would become of the planet if we continue down our current path into annihilation, if it would be left a hollow shell, or if new life could ever bloom in the soil of our remains.

Nightmarrrow was Engineered by Nicholas Alan at Subterranean Studios, Mixed by Stephen Parker (Pillorian, Maestus) and Mastered by Justin Weis at Trakworx Recording.

The album artwork for Nightmarrow was concocted by Dylan Garrett Smith, an artist whose work similarly conjures humanity's relationship and growing distance with the natural world.

Nightmarrow will be released on Hypnotic Dirge Records on May 2, 2019.

Track Name: Maple
I’ve languished in a mausoleum
of memories beneath the moss
The bitter soil where we rest
has drained away the glow of flesh

Lead me into my suffering
Hollow me with your burning gaze
Leave me here to fade in the gloom
& then depart in silent rain

Your memory opened me
I slowly tore apart my wilted skin
The melody, like a funeral knell,
of your laughter lacerated me

Our epitaphs faded long ago
The ghost of me wanders endlessly
Shattered tombstones, blossoming woe
I can hardly recognize you

Every word is a shackle
Every moment is a scar
Every promise lies in ash

Six stitches became the mark of fangs
A maw flowed cardinal streams
Your aroma of maple, sweet,

still haunts this lifeless place
still haunts this lifeless place
still haunts this lifeless place…

Here beneath this moss & ruin
I rot in solitude
I’ve become the negative space
in a starless tapestry
