Today we're more than proud to announce the 3rd. album of barbaric Death/Thrash Metal lunatics RAPTURE from gloomy Greece. Entitled „MALEVOLENT DEMISE INCARNATION“
But let's start with the badass cover artwork and later come back to the album title. Concepted by the band and illustrated by the Greek Tattoo artist Konstantinos a.k.a. Chaostouched.
Cover: https://scontent-ber1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/ ... e=5FEF7F6E
His mainly work is tattooing of course but from time to time he's responsible for great cover art, for example the previous RAPTURE album "Paroxysm of Hatred" or for the last VILE APPARITION album (Memento Mori). His art is also a part of Masterpieces/ Best Metal Artworks of 2019. Great artist creates great art for great bands !
Let's continue to the album title: MALEVOLENT DEMISE INCARNATION
Why this title and what does it means ? The band explains:
“In this extreme blend of symbolism and grim realism that defines us, Death is consolidated as thy only divine power of this world. Without faith at fake prophets and impoverished gods, Death is the single one power which stands beyond human understanding and reach, and cannot be defeated. For he always stands one step ahead, as the orgasm of the notion of life, which he dethrones. The woeful human dynasty, during its entire futile and ignorant-driven course, was searching for one and only thing. Perfection. However, where perfection thrives, humanity declines and vanishes. Thus, the human breed constitutes as a perverted dissonance of nature and creation, which eventually, will be eliminated and ravaged by the notion of creation itself. Therefore, if thy only divine power is Death, the perfection and deification that humans always pursued, is none other than their own total annihilation. We few, will reach deification, as we consist the total, undisputed, indecent, grim and triumphant, MALEVOLENT DEMISE INCARNATION.”
More infos about the album, the release date, a first song and the pre-sale are coming up DECEMBER 18th. !!
RAPTURE specializes in uncompromising Death/Thrash Misanthropy and extremity. Three years after the release of their critically acclaimed 2nd album “Paroxysm of Hatred” (Memento Mori Rec.), “Malevolent Demise Incarnation” will be the most extreme and hatred-filled Rapture album to date. Expect nothing less than an overwhelming storm of disgusting and untamed aural horrorshow.

#“Ein mega Riffgewitter!“ - WILD THING – 4/5 Punkte
#„Rapture geben auf ihrem dritten Album wirklich alles, hauen eine derbe Mischung aus Thrash Metal und Death Metal heraus und klingen dabei sehr frisch und aggressiv, aber auch teilweise verspielt. Kann man absolut empfehlen.“ - TIME FOR METAL – 8,5/10 Punkte
#„Those of you who like bands like DEMOLITION HAMMER, SOLSTICE or MERCILESS and love old fashioned Thrash Metal as well are highly recommended to check out RAPTURE.“ - VOICES FROM THE DARKSIDE
#„Each of the eight songs on the album reaffirms the band’s commitment towards a pummelling death/thrash sound in the vein of Demolition Hammer, Solstice, and others. Much like its predecessor, “Malevolent Demise Incarnation” shows no signs of weakness, rarely giving you a moment to breathe.“ - SKULL FRACTURING METAL – 8,4/10 Punkte
#„Kernig-grimmiger Metal mit rollendem Groove und einer bösartigen Härte.“ - BLEEDING 4 METAL
