Romanian Experimental Black Metal act Romania Katharos XIII will soon be launching what is to be their fourth full-length album, titled "Chthonian Transmissions", which is scheduled for release via Transylvania-based label Loud Rage Music on the 23rd of May. Leading up to the release, two of the album's tracks have now been made available for listening, the most recent of which, the album's title track, went live yesterday:


Emilian Matlak, the band's singer, guitarist and founder, commented on the new album's concepts:

The new album encapsulates six different dreams delivered from the times when the itinerant cosmonauts had a telluric existence. We like the words of Kurt Vonnegut and the imagery of Andrei Tarkovski, so we tried to embed this in our aesthetics and in every word or expression to resonate with our own personal philosophy.

Back in February the band revealed a video for the album's opening track, "Neurastenia":


The complete tracklist for the album is as follows:

  1. Neurastenia
  2. The Golden Season
  3. Sine Materia
  4. Chthonian Transmissions
  5. From the Light of Flesh
  6. Okeanos

The intriguing cover art for "Chthonian Transmissions" was designed by Romanian artist Alexandru Das, who also collaborated with Katharos XIII on their previous two albums, and who also provided additional guitar and keyboard work for the new album:

"Chthonian Transmissions" will be available in digital, jewelcase CD and digipack CD formats via the label's Bandcamp page:
