STORMRULER releases Sacred Rites & Black Magick piece by piece, part 2; Video


St. Louis-based black metal duo MO Stormruler – comprised of stalwarts of the Midwest scene Jason Asberry (vocals/guitars/bass) and Jesse Schobel (drums/vocals) – have released their new album, Sacred Rites & Black Magick, last month via Napalm Records. The group released the second track-by-track video in support of the album. Watch two segments below:

Produced, mixed and mastered by Gabe Usery at Encapsulated Studios and featuring stunning artwork by Giannis Nakos of Remedy Art Design, Sacred Rites & Black Magick blisters with more relentless intensity while maintaining a haunting and visceral aura older and ominous than never. As on Under A Burning Eclipse, between each Sacred Rites & Black Magick song is an intricate interlude that sets the mood and directs the thematic intensity of the album.

Stormruler says of Sacred Rites & Black Magick: “This album is on another level from our previous offering. It’s in the same vein of Under The Burning Eclipse’s second wave melodic black metal cult. , but with a more intense and darker sound. It has the high-speed circular saw attack that we love, crushing grooves, solid leads, atmosphere in the interludes and acoustic passages, and lyrics that tell a story.

– 2LP Gatefold Black
– 2LP Marbled White/Black/Blue Gatefold – Napalm Mailorder only, limited to 300 worldwide
