Trivax to bring more Eastern Death Magick

TRIVAX have announced details of release their second full-length album, Eloah Burns Out, on 29 September via UK-based publishing house and record label, Cult Never Dies.

The new release from the Eastern Death Magick pioneers features guest appearances include Wraath (Darvaza / Fides Inversa / Behexen / ex-One Tail One Head), J. Wilcox (Funeral Throne / Master’s Call) and Russell Dobson aka Naut (Necronautical / Winterfylleth).

The album will be available in CD, 12” LP, cassette and digital formats and can be pre-ordered now via the label’s webstore.

Clocking at just under 50 minutes, it is a concept album which tells the story of Death, as observed and experienced through various different accounts.

The guitars were recorded in the UK and later re-amped in Tehran, Iran at an underground studio in Ekbatan. Trivax wanted to capture what they call the “air of home”, despite Shayan having been unable to go back for several years due to the life-threatening conditions created by the music of Trivax and several other activities.

Formed by guitarist and vocalist Shayan, Trivax began life in the late 2000s in the perhaps unexpected location of Iran, a country whose laws regarding music – and especially black metal – have led to punishment, imprisonment and even death.

Relocating to the UK, Shayan found a like-minded ally in bassist Sully, who had similarly left Syria due to facing imprisonment for his metal associations. Completing this power trio was talented British native M. Croton, a drummer with many years of experience under his belt.
