Listen to the Dutch black metal band's, DODECAHEDRON, debut self-titled full-length in its swirling black chaos entirety over at their website. Ready to conquer all that is above and below, DODECAHEDRON will be streaming the album - which has just been released in Europe today, January 20th, 2012 and will see its North American release come January 24th, 2012 via Season Of Mist – for a week, until January 27th, 2012. ‘Dodecahedron’ comes available as a CD digipack and as double gatefold hand-numbered LP with digital download card (limited to 250 copies).
DODECAHEDRON created a buzz in the black metal scene well in advance of the release of their self-titled debut album. Under their previous moniker (“Order Of The Source Below”) the Dutch band already gave a taste of the brilliant dark things to come. DODECAHEDRON execute their atonal and dissonant monstrosities/ultimate technical challenges with a seeming ease that is simply jaw-dropping. Broken and torn structures born out of razor-like guitar riffs coagulate into melodies and patterns that constantly mutate and shape shift. Pure horror lurks in these Lovecraftian dimensions of inverted angles and escaping perspectives. Moments of bizarre aggression glide seamlessly into passages of cold threatening calm. The avant-garde spheres charted by their album ‘Dodecahedron’ have been opened by label mates MAYHEM with their groundbreaking release ‘Ordo Ad Chao’ (2007) and further explored by brothers in spirit like DEATHSPELL OMEGA. DODECAHEDRON now follow their own path through this cosmic dark musical matter with a stellar artistic brilliance that will be hard to match. Get a bitter taste of the apocalypse and dive into ‘Dodecahedron’,” [endorses Season Of Mist]
