Finnish Black Metal newcomers Finland Pestilent Hex are getting ready to release what will be their debut full-length album, titled "The Ashen Abhorrence", on the 8th of July via French label Debemur Morti Productions. While we wait, the album's title track has been made available for listening, check it out:


The label commented on the band's origins, influences, and what listeners can expect:

Drinking deep from the well of ‘90s second wave Black Metal, the masterful first utterance from Finnish newcomers PESTILENT HEX is a flawlessly reverent blend of symphonic nostalgia, modern power and ravishing grimness.

Debut album "The Ashen Abhorrence" builds a hypnotic netherworld from the shadowed groundwork of acts such as OBTAINED ENSLAVEMENT, KVIST, ABIGOR, early EMPEROR and ARCTURUS, balancing enthralling complexity and songwriting acumen through evocative vocals, elegant synth layering, shrewd drumming and intensely melodic earworm guitar-work.

The creation of 2 musicians better-known for esteemed Death and Doom Metal – multi-instrumentalist L.L. (DESOLATE SHRINE, CONVOCATION, ORDINANCE) and vocalist/lyricist M.M. (CORPSESSED, TYRANNY, PROFETUS) - "The Ashen Abhorrence" is an immersive, addictive slice of timeless Black Metal delivered with the confident swagger of those who worship eternal darkness.

The complete tracklist for "The Ashen Abhorrence" is as follows:

  1. The Ashen Abhorrence
  2. Nature of the Spirit
  3. Mephistophelean Liaison
  4. Interlude - Mists of Oneiros
  5. Old Hag
  6. Banishment

The cover art and logo were designed by the band's members:

Pestilent Hex The Ashen Abhorrence

"The Ashen Abhorrence" is now available for pre-order in digital, digipack CD and gatefold vinyl LP formats via the Debemur Morti Productions store or alternatively via the band's Bandcamp page: (EU) (US)
