New Album Peste Available November 25th from Bridge Nine Records
Italy’s Hierophant will be touring the greater part of Europe throughout December, January and February in support of their forthcoming new album, Peste, which will be available 11/25/14 from Bridge Nine. The band recently premiered a new track from the album, “Inganno”, on CVLTNation.com.
Peste is the follow-up to 2013’s acclaimed Great Mother : Holy MonsterLP which was called “a searing brand of no-holds-barred dark hardcore” by Big Cheese Magazine. It was hard to fathom Italy’s Hierophant harnessing the potential to create a record heavier and more malicious than its predecessor, an already pummeling whiplash of American D-beat-inflected metallic hardcore. Lo and behold: Peste manages just that as a superior, succinctly crushing assault, its tendencies largely erring on the side of European death metal. Hierophant spell out the desolation and desperation leveled by a war amid the id, ego and super-ego, all torturous, violent imagery and morbid, damning assertions that make it a pleasantly grim nightmare to suffer through.
Hierophant’s Peste is available for pre-order now via B9Store.com, and pre-orders will include a limited edition 7" that features the track “Inganno” as well as a cover of Nirvana’s “Negative Creep”.
