Turkey’s Burial Invocation are set to unleash their long-awaited debut full-length album, Abiogenesis. After years of silence the band has returned with a new lineup and five lumbering tracks of subhuman death metal.

The band exploded onto the underground scene when their debut EP Rituals Of The Grotesque, released in early 2010; this was the first release under the newly-formed Dark Descent Records banner. The initial pressing of the CD sold out quickly as the band’s brand of doomy, crypt-dwelling death metal proved to be as infectious as it was blistering. Mixing elements of Finnish death metal among other influences, Burial Invocation followed up the debut EP the next year on the well-received split 7″ with Japan’s Anatomia. This split, also released via Dark Descent Records, quickly sold out too and the band eventually followed these releases with some live appearances, including a set at the initial version of Copenhagen’s now legendary Kill Town Death Fest.

In the years since, the band was inactive as members pursued other projects and interests. There were rumblings though, including small European tour runs, but fans were largely left to wonder what happened to them. In 2017 it was rumoured that the fires had been lit once more as the band were said to be working on a new album; and this has been confirmed as their brand new album will be out soon via the Dark Descent Records banner (with vinyl via long-time ally Me Saco Un Ojo).

They’ve unleashed a new track called ‘Phantasmogoric Transcendence’ which we’re sharing here – and we’re looking forward to hearing more from them. Abiogenesis will be available 6 July on limited-edition vinyl with the CD and digital release dates set for 17 August via Dark Descent Records.
