With an approach that was as nihilistic and crusty as it was cinematically grand, Paradise Lost’s Greg Mackintosh teamed up with former EXTREME NOISE TERROR and Vallenfyre bassist Chris Casket to record a truly bonecrushing beast of old-school death metal.

Watch and listen to the vicious track ‘Nocturnal Vermin’ here: youtu.be/4BEsKqx8xIIThe 12-song-debut was recorded and mixed at Greg’s Black Planet Studio between January and March 2019. The English duo announced the album alongside their haunting first single, ‘Phantoms’. Watch the official video for ‘Phantoms‘: youtu.be/4ZGsNENJyW4

Named after the troubled spirits in Romanian mythology who could rise from the grave and assume an entirely different form, STRIGOI‘s bassist Chris Casket was also tasked with writing the lyrics for the new project. Mackintosh gave him simple thematic guidelines: attack organized religion, sparingly discuss grief and dive into the countless horrible things that humanity continues to inflict upon itself.
