VÖ / Release Date: 13.09.2019 ### Rending the Veil of Flesh sees FORMICARIUS in their second studio album, following on from their debut album `Black Mass Ritual`. It cuts deep into the bloody centuries of Christianity and as they have spread their demon wings lyrically, their music has become richer and darker, painted in a thousand layers, the many hued colours of twilight. To perfect their musical visions FORMICARIUS have called upon fellow dwellers in perdition. The inversion of the divine that is `Early Will I Seek Thee` is bookended by a dread invocation from Sakis Tolis (ROTTING CHRIST) and the plaintive violin playing of Nicholas Miller of AKLASH. Throughout the album the mighty drumming of Kevin Paradis (BENIGHTED) propels each grand and glorious track forward like machines of war. To set the final seal upon this new tome of defiance, FORMICARIUS turned to Parlour Studios (Dimmu Borgir, Samael, Venomous Concept etc) for the final mix and mastering. Do not close your eyes in anticipation of blessed slumber, for they come to deliver a new truth, to right the wrongs of this dying world. The demons are on the wing and your flesh is but a veil for the rending. #### `...grandiose black metal of the highest order.` (POWERPLAY ROCK & METAL MAGAZINE) For fans of: Emperor, Cradle Of Filth, Dimmu Borgir & Immortal.
