GATHODAIMON release single "Kyrie/Gloria" and video
New album 'The Seven' out this Friday
AGATHODAIMON announces its comeback, seven years after the release of In Darkness, with a new album. The Seven, the seventh studio album of the German symphonic gothic metal band will be released on March 18, 2022 via Napalm Records. In celebration of the coming album, the band now released a video for “Kyrie/Gloria”. The song features a guest appearance by Benighted frontman Julien Truchan.
Watch “Kyrie/Gloria” below.
AGATHODAIMON on “Kyrie/Gloria”:
“This is one of the most extreme songs on our album. Blast beats meet excessive Doom Metal riffs… We love the intense atmosphere evoked here – the song has an awesome groove, and we’re really looking forward to playing it live. Oh, and we highly suggest checking out the video clip we did for this one!”
Watch the previously released “Wolf Within” below.
Founder, bandleader and guitarist Sathonys on “Wolf Within”: “We wanted to show a different side of the album with this song. While the first single sounded primarily aggressive and brute, ‘Wolf Within’ is just as dark, but a good bit more melodic and thanks to some quiet passages and Ashtrael’s clear vocals also quite memorable. Enjoy this pre-taste of the upcoming album, and be sure to check out the lyric video, as it features some of the excellent artwork created to illustrate THE SEVEN.”
Pre-order The Seven AT THIS LOCATION.
Sathonys about the album:
“Well, we took our time in creating this album. We had to make sure we (can) work together as a band after all these years, that the chemistry is there, that it feels organic to release another album after such a long break. To cut it short, we’re really looking forward to having The Seven out, as we’re very satisfied with it. More than that, we’re proud of it. Typically, you can point a finger at one or two songs that really stand out from the rest, but here, you’ll feel the effort that was put into every song and every aspect. Not only in terms of songwriting, there’s also the artistic concept and visual artwork/realization delivered by the team of Credo Quia Absurdum, and excellent production under the supervision of our friend Kristian “Kohle” Kohlmannslehner (Powerwolf, Aborted, Benighted etc.). Usually you have to be prepared to make compromises. The Seven is far from that, as it is our most ambitious album to date.”
