Today, Australian black metal cult Pestilential Shadows premiere the new track “Fragments” at Terrorizer magazine’s website. The song hails from their highly anticipated new album, Ephemeral, set for international release on October 31st via Seance Records. One of Australian black metal’s longest-running and most revered forces in the underground, Ephemeral retains Pestilential Shadows’ signature poetic heaviness and melody but twists the dagger deeper into the soul. It is gritty and raw, driven by heart-wrenching emotion and fathomless despair. It quickens the blood with bitter poison and, like its namesake, reminds us that life is fleeting – merely a transitory state between birth, death, and nothingness. So, as surely as the scythe falls indiscriminately on young and old, rich and poor, know that death touches us all.
