Prolific Australian Black Metal solo project Australia Drowning the Light has recently released a brand new studio album, titled "Haunter of the Deep", and also two brand new EPs, titled "The Ghost of the Flea" and "Lurker of the Void". All three releases are now streaming in full over at the Dark Adversary Productions channel:


"Haunter of the Deep" is an album filled with melodic and melancholic Setapophian Black Metal darkness that will drag you from the shallows into the murky depths below...
A journey to great empires forgotten by time... A trident to plunge and fill your lungs... And as death creeps closer with the tides and you are pulled into the Abyss, bioluminescent beings will become the last light that you see...


This EP can be considered a melancholic and majestic tendril with the same spirit as the "Haunter of the Deep" album, but rather than being below the depths it is in a dimension of its own.
Raw Black Metal with synthscapes and haunting melodies ignite a Setapophian flame... Illuminating the abyss and burning through you... the Lurker of the Void.


This EP of raw, melancholic & bloodthirsty Black Metal is based on the painting and drawing of the same name by William Blake of a Vampyric entity that appeared before him during a séance with John Varley in 1819.

The two would often gather late at night in Varley's house, and played a game in which Varley would attempt to summon the spirit of a historical or mythological person. On the appearance of the spirit, Blake would then attempt to sketch their likeness. According to Varley, the imagery of a Flea came to Blake during an 1819 séance. The Flea entity told Blake that “fleas were inhabited by the souls of such men as were by nature blood thirsty to excess.”

The flea communicated to Mr. Blake; “It was first intended,” said he (the flea) “to make me as big as a bullock; but then when it was considered from my construction, so armed - and so powerful withal, that in proportion to my bulk, mischievous as I now am, that I should have been a too mighty destroyer; it was determined to make me - no bigger than I am.” The sketch and painting of the Flea, part human, part Vampyre and part reptile have led many to believe William Blake was communing with something far more sinister...

All three releases are available in CD format here:
