Molekh announce new album

Molekh is a black/death/avant-garde metal band from Dublin, Ireland. The band was formed in 2017 by three members of Polish black/folk metal band Thy Worshiper.

Band is going to release their debut full-length album “Ritus”. Music was recorded by Shauny Cads at Hellfire Studio (Abigail Williams, Dread Sovereign, Malthusian) and mixed by Shauny Cads at Last Light Recordings. Haldor Grunberg who cooperated with Azarath and Behemoth was responsible for mastering. Front cover was done by Krzysztof Wronski Artwork (ROSK, The Throne), while layout was designed by BlackTeamMedia (Feto in Fetus, Sanctus Hexe).

Date of release is scheduled on March 27, 2023 and will be released by Australian Pale Ghoul Recordings (tape) and Canadian Bent Window Records (CD). The pre-order of the album will be launched soon on the band’s Bandcamp.

Band commentary about the album:

“Named by his name. Through blood and possession. Through the ashes of the flame and the abyss of summoning. Seven Dragon heads, seven faces of the beast. Seven rituals of fire, blood, assassination, and hatred.

‘Ritus’ is the first full-length album by Molekh and is comprised of a story concealed within the music that aims to place the listener into a dark, savage and possessed place full of natural evil. The music is intense, gloomy, atmospheric, and heavy. It is a 7-track concept album, running at 40 minutes”.
