The new album features seven new songs reminiscent of horror infected old-school death metal. According to Stereogum, “each of those tracks builds around its own central riff, swelling and shrinking progressions to achieve a hypnotic swirl”.

Jonathan Hultén (guitars) commented: “Venture is a journey from the rawest, most monotonous cellar-darkness up to a desolate mountain top, from which you are thrown into the abyss below in a castanedian manner. If only but for a moment or even throughout the whole 38 minutes, be prepared to enter the other world. For four years we have been boiling down our material to the bone in pursuit of the essence of this type of music. Our conclusion is that the simple and repetitive riffing is holding the key, and is enhanced by more or less subtle choirs and sound textures. Primitive, yet atmospheric”.

“Venture” was recorded in Necromorbus Studio (Watain, Portrait) in Stockholm, Sweden. It will be available in a digipack CD, digitally and in a 12″ vinyl (black, limited picture disc and a special tri-colour version).
