Northern Irish extreme metal quintet Drakonis have signed a deal in blood with Hostile Media which will see the band release a new record entitled The Great Miasma. Guitarist Saul McMichael (also of Irish pagan metal outfit Waylander) comments:
Signing to Hostile Media for this release is a significant milestone in the band’s career. We’ve always believed in what we do, and to have a label share that belief is more validating than words can describe. We knew we had a good chance at getting picked up by a label when it came time to release our first album, but to be picked up for an EP was something we never expected.
So here marks the start of our journey down a hopefully successful, yet bloody path for both band and label.
The Great Miasma is set for release on 1st December 2017 and can be pre-ordered now. It is a story-driven concept EP spanning three songs. Each song takes the listener through a different chapter, following the ritualistic sacrifice, possession and wrath of a young girl to appease an ancient god. Each song will also be accompanied by a music video, released out of sequence. Only when all three videos have been released and played in order, will the story become clear. Tracklisting for the EP is as follows:
- The Great Miasma
- Let Us Pray
- Queen Of Swarms
The video we have for you today is the premiere of track two – “Let Us Pray”…
