“The Telluric Ashes of the Ö Vrth Immemorial Gods” is the 4th, most epic and most annihilating album by France's ESOCTRILIHUM, a cryptic entity that is torching the black death metal scene to the ground at great speed. Governed by the even more mysterious Asthâghul, ESOCTRILIHUM have the rare ability to perceive otherworldly, grotesque dimensions of cosmic horror and represent them in a very concrete and convincing way. Their records are an immanence of the absurd: the divine breaks into our material world with a blind destructing frenzy, making it clear that mankind is a mere fading footnote in the highest schemes of existence. Nothing more than the delirious idea of a sick god on its death bed.
The music of ESOCTRILIHUM pushes the listener through dark tunnels and mystic portals that lead to arcane and hallucinatory places. Asthâghul holds their keys... and yet he's the sore prisoner of his own visions, a reluctant messenger of astral worlds beyond human comprehension. He's a sort of Abdul Alhazred of metal: like the mad poet of Lovecraftian memory, he has seen what shouldn't be seen, and pours his experiences into majestic compositions where the intricate geometries of riffs and rhythms conjure up chaos and darkness.
Composed in 2018 and wrapped up in a visionary cover painting by Alan “Medusawolf” Brown (MASTODON), ESOCTRILIHUM's “The Telluric Ashes of the Ö Vrth Immemorial Gods” can be considered the missing junction between the hammering death metal of “Pandaemorthium” and the psychedelic black metal drifts of “Inhüma”, tied together by stuporous dark melodies of cosmic proportions, intoxicant like mind-altering drugs and sour like poison.
