Volkheim_DivineUnmercy Black metal that conjures a very haunting atmosphere, this is the true essence of what black metal has always been and just as the genre was starting to lose it's spark for me again for the fourth time in the past 12 years, this band does for me what a band like Sale Freux or Nordvrede did for me in 2012, it revived the interest for me, there is always that one band that puts out a phenomenal piece of music just at the right time and this is the band for me in 2018 in terms of black metal. Favorite track: Consulting te Hermetic.

SIGNAL REX is proud to present ALBIONIC HERMETICISM's striking debut album, Ancient Hermetic Purity, on CD formats.

A new UK entity, ALBIONIC HERMETICISM create a uniquely lurking dread across the 36 mystical minutes comprising Ancient Hermetic Purity, their first public recording. Deeply rooted in the ancient ways of black metal but by no means regressionist in outlook nor approach, Ancient Hermetic Purity creates stark yet somehow dense soundwalls of hypnotic transcendence. Their harrowing surge is both unrelenting and nuanced, evincing desperation and delirium in equal measure, but more often than not, the pulled-back moments create a haunting atmosphere that's penetrating to the core.

In their own words, ALBIONIC HERMETICISM is enlightenment by means of hermetic rituals in a North-western European context: the ancient rites and gods of Egypt brought forth by their own pagan European past, a past morphed by centuries of migrations including that of the red-haired Egyptian aristocracy to the British isles - a people blessed with Ancient Hermetic Purity.

From within the maelstrom of irrational noise and thought rises a choking fog of reason and order: hereby arises ALBIONIC HERMETICISM's Ancient Hermetic Purity.
