Re-release of VI's debut EP "De Praestigiis Daemonum". Newly remastered by M. (Mgła) in No Solace Studio and featuring a new cover artwork made by Adrian Baxter.
The line-up of VI is shaped by INVRI (Aosoth, ex-Antaeus) on guitars and vocals, BST (Aosoth, ex-Antaeus, The Order Of Apollyon) on bass and Blastum (ex-Aosoth, ex-Antaeus, Merrimack) on drums. Their music bestirs within the characteristic black metal niche developed by the said bands, with the addition of expanded guitar work, choirs and subtle sample parts. VI describes their music as "extreme, devoted black metal with illuminated chaos".
"De Praestigiis Daemonum" was recorded in 2007 in BST Studio, prior to Blastum's joining. Instead, BST himself took care of drum programming for this release.
Available in refined gatelfold vinyls, black & gold.
A corrosive mix of death, doom, psychedelia, and black metal, the Portland quartet’s debut full-length is a bona fide underground monolith that shapeshifts with each listen, all while maintaining its essential heaviness. Bandcamp Album of the Day Feb 1, 2019
