Dmitry Nevozhay As a long time Voivod fan, i cannot resist this voivod-sounding murky death metal. Demilich meets Voivod is my attempt to describe this band

Dr. Zoid Transports you right into the cover of Killing Technology. Confronts you with the terror from outer space and the horrors of inner self. Compels you to use clever puns nobody understands. Cerviikst einfach alles!

a-pale-shadow Weirdo death metal in the vein of Demilich and Howls of Ebb. Don't skip this one.

jamusteve Some of the best metal I have heard, incredibly inventive riffs and structure. Standout perfomances from all members of the band. Punky, brutal, triumphant, emotional, all encompassing. Atmospheric yet greatly varied and engaging. I listened to Δt (Recite the Kriitiikal Mæss) probably 20+ times while awaiting the album's release. Highly recommend! Favorite track: Δt (Recite the Kriitiikal Mæss).

IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS is proud to present KHTHONIIK CERVIIKS' highly anticipated second album, Æequiizoiikum, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

It was but the beginning of 2016 when German black/death alchemists KHTHONIIK CERVIIKS released their critically acclaimed debut album, SeroLogiikal Scars (Vertex of Dementiia), on vinyl through IRON BONEHEAD. The years since that literally scarring display of blown-mind metal mastery may seem quiet, but the band in fact released an equally challenging split LP with comrades Howls of Ebb during the summer of 2017, also through IRON BONEHEAD, whetting appetites for their grandest strike yet...

At last, it has arrived, once again with a tongue-twisting title that's as treacherous(ly adventurous) as its contents: Æequiizoiikum. Here, KHTHONIIK CERVIIKS explore a wealth of contrasts, of extremes usually unattainable with metal this crushing and caustic. Swarming yet spacious, angular yet oddly anthemic, melodic yet miasmically so, direct yet detouring, alien and futuristic yet in a manner most rusted and rustic: Æequiizoiikum is the sound of KC at their impossible peak. All the elements from previous recordings - including their now-classic Heptaedrone demo, released in 2013 by IRON BONEHEAD and thereby starting the onslaught of oddness - are accounted for here, but taken in a more stately and daresay "mature" direction. The startling poise is more pronounced, the songs dig their hooks deeper, the "metal" in their black/death METAL simultaneously emphasized and abstracted, the gnarliness more graceful, the confidence simply off the charts here...truly, no one sounds like KHTHONIIK CERVIIKS, now more than ever.

IRON BONEHEAD has always sought to present listeners with vortexes various and virulent. With KHTHONIIK CERVIIKS's Æequiizoiikum, they do both, and paradoxically in their most alluring form yet.
