Italian Black / Death Metal act Italy Hierophant have recently revealed a brand new track from their upcoming album, "Death Siege", which is scheduled for release on the 26th of August via Season of Mist. The new song is titled "Crypt of Existence", and was released last week in lyric video format, check it out:


The label commented:

The band’s fourth full-length Death Siege was written during the first months of the pandemic, from March 2020 until May 2021, a dark period described by Lorenzo as a “Fucking long process but it was worth it. Until then, we were maybe missing a bit proper song structures and arrangements. In retrospect, Mass Grave is more grind-ish whereas the new is far more metal and riff-oriented. The songs are longer and have more things happening in them, the album is overall far more ambitious and more, well, musical.”

Death Siege is full of war metaphors, lyrics about complete annihilation (‘Seeds Of Vengeance’, ‘Devils Incarnate’, Bloodbath Compendium’ etc.) and “fire, hatred and endless void. It’s like you know something awful it’s going to happen and sweep the plate clean but no matter how hard you try, you won’t be able to stop it. That’s how I want the listeners to feel when they listen to this record. DESTROY”.

"Death Siege" will mark Hierophant's fifth studio album, and their first release of any kind since 2018. Complete tracklist is as follows:

  1. Mortem Aeternam
  2. Seeds Of Vengeance
  3. Devil Incarnate
  4. Bloodbath Compendium
  5. Crypt Of Existence
  6. Interlude
  7. In Chaos, In Death
  8. Abysmal Annihilation
  9. Death Siege
  10. Nemesis Of Thy Mortals

The cover art was designed by Canadian artist Abomination Hammer:
