Conjurer release a new brutally haunting new song and video entitled ‘Rot’, which taken from their new album Páthos, which will be released 1st July via Nuclear Blast.
The 6 minute song takes you a on journey of pure unfiltered emotion with their use of unsettling discordant melodies and brutal raw bursts of aggression that hit you right in the guts. The video is aptly creepy & disturbing and compliments the themes of the song well.
Talking on the release, the band comment: “Rot looks at the same topics of anxiety, fear, and depression that feature in ‘It Dwells’ and flips the perspective/narrative. We wanted to hone in on the most visceral and disgusting parts of our sound when we were writing it and, along with the lyrics, play with the idea of giving that fear and dread a voice. (It’s not very nice.)”

Páthos is not an album for the half-hearted or faint-hearted. Elements of Sumac, Gojira, old Mastodon and Oathbreaker, the new record is a multi-layered beast – sludge, death, doom, black metal and hardcore influences clash and collide throughout, all masterfully finished by Will Putney’s exquisite mix and master. The fifty-minute runtime of Páthos is not without its moments of the sublime, with post-metal nods to Conjurer and Pijn’s acclaimed Curse These Metal Hands project throughout.
