IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS is proud to present PERVERTICON's long-awaited second album, Wounds of Divinity, on CD and vinyl LP formats.
It's been a quiet five years since PERVERTICON last released an album. Bearing the telltale title of Extinguishing the Flame of Life, the album was a bolt-from-the-blue introduction to PERVERTICON and poignantly displayed the band's mastery of pure, undiluted second-wave black metal. Now, with Wounds of Divinity, they eclipse that feat with a longer, stronger record that proves the past is indeed alive.
From songwriting on down to production, PERVERTICON's Wounds of Divinity authentically breathes the breath of the ancients - specifically, Scandinavian black metal from 1996 to 1999. No surprise, then, that the band is Swedish, but labor under no delusions that the power-trio are merely (and listlessly) running through tired, old tropes. If anything, the ravening fire that courses through Wounds of Divinity invigorates this largely dormant idiom, reaping a whirlwind of spellbinding melody and cascading violence, all tethered to thoughtfully dynamic songwriting. Not to mention that PERVERTICON possess a flair for the dramatic, both within coloring their songs' contours but most especially in their visual presentation, thusly giving Wounds of Divinity a fresh, palatably modern aspect.
Present thy veins to PERVERTICON and receive Wounds of Divinity!

Deathspell Omega has been lauded for what seems like ages now however I didn't personally listen to them much at all until after this release, instead preferring to stick to more traditional "orthodox" BM..
Long story short I'm forever grateful to our Dark Lord that I decided to expand my horizons because this as well as every other album in DSO's catalog is an absolute masterpiece and every fan of extreme metal music(not just Black Metal) owes it to themselves to check them out.
The Furnaces of Palingenesia is stunningly innovative how it transforms what appears to be harsh disconnected noise into melodic beauty through weaving indecipherable and indistinguishable dissonant threads together into a tapestry of melodic perfection that checks all the right boxes and can only be described as art. Consequently, you'll discover that every subsequent listen will unearth new layers that you seemingly didn't hear before.
For the best experience, listen alone in a dark room with headphones (preferably light up a fat blunt) and give yourself up wholly to the music. Let the deeply malignant and yet blessedly euphoric aura of dissonance overtake your pathetic soul.
Blessed is he that murders Christ in himself and in his fellow man.
Amen. Matthew Kokinda
