BLOOD HARVEST RECORDS is proud to present VOIDCEREMONY's Cyclical Descent of Causality, the sequel to last year's Dystheism debut demo, which BLOOD HARVEST reissued on 7" vinyl this past summer to critical acclaim. Strictly limited to 150 copies, Cyclical Descent of Causality is a three-song cassette comprising 25 minutes of blackened death metal sprawling with labyrinthine technicality and endless corridors of unexplored realms. Much like the earlier Dystheism, here VOIDCEREMONY are a dizzying, bilious beast, their songs twisting and contorting in obscene ways. However, the California band's vision has grown more daring, the quartet's compositions aiming for both greater heights and more abyssal depths, and all without losing their original rawness and dark spark of creation. Throughout this journey, the listener travels deep within the wasted age of humankind. Thus showcased across Cyclical Descent of Causality is a view and observation of the degrading effects of the zealous human nature, its end state, and eventual resurfacing...and VOIDCEREMONY likewise continue their ascent.
"From the very start of Voidceremony’s newest cassette only release, you get the feeling that you’re in store for something special. This is for sure some grim Blackened Death Metal, but it is played with an ugliness all it’s own. Not just overwhelmingly fast blastbeats or super slow doom, Cyclical Descent of Casualty walks many fine lines, even getting progressive in parts. Sort of reminds me of early Asphyx or Samael. Indeed some lofty comparisons, but I believe you will be astonished with Voidceremony’s ability to take you into some low, dark places that you may not have visited in a while. Extremely limited to only 150 copies, be sure to be on the lookout for this one." - (AP of The Dirty Room)

This album intrigued me when it first released and I've come to the point that this might be one of my favorite death metal album of all time. The first song sucks you in with the fairly conventional song length and structure. Then as the album progresses it really shows you its true potential. If you are thinking about buying this album get a physical release. Staring at the spiral before listening enhances everything. mar12
