Matthew Toye Shroud Of The Heretic create deep, crushing, and vast hymns that can destroy the universe. This trio does death metal proud. Favorite track: Sprawling Black Mass Consummation.

Niccolo Brown Just when I was beginning to think it was a subgenre in recession, Shroud Of The Heretic have weighed in with not only one of the best death metal albums in recent memory, but one of the best metal albums full stop. "Unorthodox Equilibrium" is a toxic infusion of attritional riffing, bowel-loosening low end and wave upon pummelling wave of blast beats, but ironically it's the moments of meditative calm amid the obliterating noise that are the key to this album's greatness. Immense. Favorite track: Omega Apeiron.

about

IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS is proud to present the highly anticipated second album of SHROUD OF THE HERETIC, Unorthodox Equilibrium. Following on from the power-trio's critically acclaimed Revelations in Alchemy debut LP last year, Unorthodox Equilibrium is yet another aptly titled account of the miasmic, sonic sorcery SHROUD OF THE HERETIC create. The band's first full-length exhibited a hungry horde consumed with churning Metal of Death firmly in the post-Incantation canon. Now, with yet another year of growth behind them and bolder visions to realize, SHROUD OF THE HERETIC stretch their cavernous maw wider and to far more epic lengths here on Unorthodox Equilibrium, displaying a more unique identity that's no less morbid and mesmerizing and thusly challenging the precepts of the "sepulchral death metal" idiom that's seen such a resurgence in recent years. With four vast 'n' viscous tracks stretched across an album and each one as evocatively titled as the last, SHROUD OF THE HERETIC right the balance with Unorthodox Equilibrium.
