If filthy despondent sludge and doom metal is what you have a craving for, you’ve landed in the right crypt of despair. Premiering today, The Shaman is able to bring you the downtuned madness from the Italian riff heavy behemoths Sator with the slightly chilling, yet also very fitting, video for their new track Ancient Disease.
The nine-minute pummelling is taken from their upcoming album Cleansing Ritual, which drops next month, 22nd April, through Argonauta Records, and about the track, the band comments, ‘With its heavy riffs and smoke-corroded vocals, Ancient Disease sets straight the mood of the album. The lyrics deal with death: the fear of mankind for the inevitable end, the strive for answers that don’t exist.’
Now don’t be lonely, click play below and surrender to the filth-riddled sludge of Sator‘s Ancient Disease…
More On Sator & ‘Cleansing Ritual’
Following their much acclaimed, latest record Ordeal (2017, Argonauta Records), Genoa-based heavy sludge and doom metal trio Sator has announced the release of their third studio album. Cleansing Ritual will be out on April 22nd through Argonauta Records.
Inspired by both the classic yet current scene, from the pioneers of doom and krautrock to modern extreme, sludge and post-metal bands, Sator merges an enthralling blend of all that is heavy, while doubling down their songwriting talent and colossal sound to a new level on Cleansing Ritual.
Slower, heavier, and even more psychedelic, Sator’s forthcoming record proves to become one of the heavy doom and sludge metal highlights in 2022 – highly recommended for fans of acts such as EyeHateGod, Neurosis and alike – and ultimately sees the band stepping out as one of Italy’s best kept underground secrets!
‘Cleansing Ritual is our heaviest, most psychedelic album: a ritual of slow riffs and angst-ridden screams drenched in feedback and distortions.’ says guitarist Mauro. ‘We cleanse ourselves from the Evil of this World to become as pure as children… The Children of Doom… Doom’s children.’
