A Requiem For Terra is the forthcoming new full-length from BLACK HOLE GENERATOR. Led by Vulture Industries' mainman Bjørnar E. Nilse, and set to drop later this month via Dark Essence Records, the seven-track offering shifts between the bleak aural landscapes of a desolate world and the frantic torrent of the abyss. From the brooding, doom-laden opener of "A Requiem For Terra," and the mesmerizing riffing of "Moloch" to the catchy "Beneath A Chemical Sky" and the fierce "Emerging Pantheon," A Requiem For Terra boasts Nilsen's distinctive and highly charged vocals and enough stand-out riffing to satisfy the souls of any guitar aficionado, with Arve Isdal (Enslaved, Audrey Horne) on guitars, Gjermund Fredheim (Taake, Orkan) performing lead guitars on three of the tracks, and additional guitars by Dag Terje Andersen.
In advance of its release, today Decibel Magazine offers up "Moloch" for communal feasting noting of the track, "Building from trancelike melodies to a powerful crescendo, BLACK HOLE GENERATOR then explodes into high-speed blast beats and tremolo picking. By the song's end, the speed has reached a peak as vocalist Bjørnar Nilsen cries out to Moloch with the screams of a man possessed."
BLACK HOLE GENERATOR's A Requiem For Terra comes shrouded in the artwork of Romanian artist and designer Costin Chioreanu and will see release on CD, vinyl, and digital formats on November 18th in Europe followed by a North America street date of November 25th.
