Invisible Oranges are proud to announce the streaming of US extreme metal band Ævangelist's upcoming album Omen Ex Simulacra, due out November 29th. Enjoy the soundtrack of the abyss here.

About the album, Invisible Oranges says: "The first three minutes of "Veils", the opening track to sophomore LP Omen Ex Simulacra, has no guitar, bass, drums, or vocals. Ævangelist opts instead to ramp up the atmosphere, with a mix of old-school Cynic space noises and deeply unsettling ambience in the vein of Blut Aus Nord or Xasthur. When the riffs finally arrive, they aren't showy or particularly catchy, serving rather as vessels to keep the atmosphere's momentum going. This goes on for nearly 13 awesome and occasionally terrifying minutes. The rest of the album pulls from the same bag of tricks: high-pitched Mercyful Fate vocals next to jagged Anaal Nathrakh industrial freakouts next to spooky In the In The Nightside Eclipse keys. It would probably come off as mere pastiche if any other band was combining this many strange elements in this reckless a fashion, but Ævangelist stands alone."

This is quite enjoyable so far. Definitely some layers here.
Album art is also impressive.

I love what I'm hearing, the sound has matured and the layers are sick.

Yeah, that was a pretty intense album.

Oh boy I know what I'm doing tonight.

EDIT: The album is great, but that description of it in the article is absolutely terrible. I can't imagine anyone associating these guys with Mercyful Fate, lol.

I went pretty much "what is it in this fudge?" when that came up. Buuuutts, whatever floats their boat...
