"We are pleased to present the second track of our sophomore album ‘kwintessens’, called ‘Tetrahedron – The Culling of the Unwanted from the Earth.’ This is the first of the five key compositions on the album, each of which is related to a geometrical shape called Platonic solid. These shapes have served as compositional tools, while the story throughout the album deals with the process of growth, enlightenment, and megalomania, eventually leading to an obliterating tragedy. Get ready to be plunged into the abyss."
There is a universe of possibilities to explore musical darkness. Yet metal seems to have a tendency for endlessly riding stereotypical riff-horses until they are flogged to death and beyond the point of any meaningful resurrection. DODECAHEDRON furiously destroy such notions and advance to new horizons.
This Dutch League of Extraordinary Musicians is harnessing the power of seething black chaos into a precisely aimed sonic assault. Expanding on the pioneering works of MAYHEM in their ‘Ordo Ad Chao’ (2007) phase and French trailblazers DEATHSPELL OMEGA, DODECAHEDRON push this stream of extreme consciousness forward into even more spine-chilling dimensions.
Their sophomore full-length ‘kwintessens’ arrives with intensified focus. Those atonal and dissonant monstrosities created by ultimate technical mastery and spawned on the self-titled debut album ‘Dodecahedron’ (2012) are now directing their explosive fury with even more precision straight to the point. The balance between aggression and suspended states of icy shock has been re-calibrated.
DODECAHEDRON started out as ORDER OF THE SOURCE BELOW before embracing a clear vision of darkness reaching beyond black metal. Carving their own path into the cosmic dark musical matter with a stellar technical brilliance, ‘kwintessens’ delivers the spark to ignite the new flame. Expect a brutal blast!
