Vástígr “The Path Of Perdition” available for preorder

Austrian one-man black metal band Vástígr sophomore studio record The Path Of Perdition, scheduled for May 24th, can now be preordered via Bandcamp and Sound Cave! All the album details, including the first single “Plunge”, follow hereunder.

A perfect blending of atmospheric black metal and dissonant, complex structures typical to the Icelandic scene, Vástígr music is one of the very rare cases in which a black metal artist is actually crafting something personal and unique. After a five-year long silence, Vástígr is back with its sophomore album, The Path of Perdition, a cathartic journey through downfall and uprising, of accepting man’s futility and insignificance in a greater (cosmic) scheme.

As described by Þ., “the eternal cycle goes ever on and could not care less what happens to us. Eventually the wheel of time crushes us all like insects. What remains is memory, ruins, ashes, until even those fade into oblivion – and the knowledge that the cycle shall repeat itself, for better or worse”.

The Path Of Perdition was produced in Iceland at Studio Emissary by Stephen Lockhart and features a cover art by French artist Metastazis.
