CRAVEN IDOL SIGN TO DARK DESCENT

London maniacs Craven Idol have signed to US underground heavyweights Dark Descent Records, promising a debut LP for the new year.

.

Dark Descent announced the signing of the black/thrash bastards last week and will release their first full-length, ‘Auras of Undeath’ [working title],  in 2013 via CD/LP formats.

.

According to a press release from Dark Descent and the band, Craven Idol “have completed 8 new offerings of ripping black metal, channelled with a vitriol akin to Nifelheim and Absu, with further allegiances to the dark arts of Inquisition and Samael. Musically the release is an assault on those who neglect the potent legacy of the 1980s, while thematically it attacks all proponents of unfounded spiritual dogma.”

This recording follows the band’s previous statement, ‘Ethereal Altars’, released on CD and 12” by Hammer of Hate Records in 2010.

Craven Idol’s grandmaster dictator and bestial tyrant of fury, Vrath, spoke to ZT about the signing, saying:
.
“To our mind, Dark Descent embodies the best in extreme underground metal today, and we are most proud to join a label that shares our musical inclinations. Recent releases by Vorum, Vassafor, Desolate Shrine, and Binah (just to name a few) are amongst recent personal favourites. Craven Idol fits seamlessly into this roster of bands and are looking forward to working with Dark Descent. It shall slay!”

.

Since forming in 2005, the band have conducted several live performances in the UK and overseas, sharing stages with powers such as Inquisition, Necros Christos, Vomitor and Sadistic Intent, as they ferociously clawed and ravaged their way to their rightful position as one of the UK’s most exciting extreme bands.

Craven Idol will also play alongside fellow UK doom-bringers Lvcifyre, on 8th March at the Water Rats, London.
