Veil of Death, Ruptured

by Asagraum

EDGED CIRCLE PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the brand new 3rd album from the black metal witches coven ASAGRAUM entitled “Veil of Death, Ruptured”. Worldwide release date set for 20th of October 2023.

This brand new album sees Asagraum burning with equally intensity in songwriting, execution, and atmosphere, staying true to their original aims whilst pushing their classicist sound further into the present. Granted, that blast-from-the-past classicism is inescapable – this is pure, traditional BLACK METAL above all – but not once across this single does that hinder their timeless expression. If anything, this is the sound of Asagraum at their most dark and triumphant, marching forward with obsidian austerity, reflecting their prolific presence on the live front: tangibly physical black metal, played with passion and authenticity and not augmented by cheap studio trickery. Brazen that expression might be – not to overstate the fact, but most nowadays black metal hides in the shadows – but Asagraum continue to sound fresh among that modern BM landscape, outstripping the prevailing trends and the pretenders who enable them.

  • "Asagraum shows they are a band that have developed their signature style, they are in good form and present excellent songwriting and atmosphere. (...) With this album these two ladies show that they are on top of their game."
    8.1/10 -
  • "Although the band’s first two records were impressive and powerful in their own right, Veil Of Death, Ruptured feels like they are finally creating world-beating black metal, developing their own distinct voice and characteristics that put them in the elite class within extreme metal."
    9/10 - Distorted Sound
  • "The ladies have recorded a beast of an album that does not have to hide behind other reference works. Veil Of Death, Ruptured has become a very convincing third album, which impresses with a very clear and powerful production and proves that it was composed with a lot of heart and passion. Horns up for Asagraum."
    9/10 - Metal Bite
  • "... Asagraum have not deviated from their original aim at all. They have just honed their art to greater perfection. (...) A BLACK METAL MASTERPIECE"
