ATRIARCH - Another Track From New Album Available For Streaming

The towering new hymn comes by way of the band's third full-length and first under the Relapse Record banner, An Unending Pathway. Atriarch will deliver sonic catharsis of their haunting atmospheres and avalanches of chest-heaving sludge at once compelling and overwhelming on 28th October. Imagine Bauhaus as interpreted by Eyehategod, or The Sisters Of Mercy filtered through Neurosis, and only then can you begin to grasp the darkness that is Atriarch.

Welcome to the bewitching and magical pagan world of The Moon And The Nightspirit. The Hungarian duo consisting of singer/multiinstrumentalist Ágnes Tóth and lyricist/multiinstrumentalist Mihály Szabó, brought to life in 2003 is back with their fifth studio album named Holdrejtek. In truth there are not enough words in the vocabulary to express the magical entity of their music, but let me tell you that their enchanting and compulsive creations split between medieval, folk, world, pagan and celtic music are simply out of this world. Holdrejtek is absolutely their strongest and most compact release to date, it's thematically based and influenced, like each of their albums, by deep veneration for and love of nature, yet this time approached by much more philosophical and intellectual way and less romantical. Still this doesn't mean that it has lost any of its romantic charm, contrary. The Moon And The Nightspirit can captivate with an interesting sense to compose smooth, yet very rich, almost cinematic ambiances that can be compared in terms of effectiveness to those of Dead Can Dance, but the acts that are stylistically nearest are Norwegians Arcana or Austrians Die Verbannten Kinder Evas. Holdrejtek holds an ancient aura and engulfs its vibe from the ancient folklore and mysticism. It's essence is dark, yet pure, it's elegant and hypnotic in the most audacious way.
