Cult black metal band THE DEATHTRIP have announced their new album “Demon Solar Totem”, their follow-up to 2014’s debut “Deep Drone Master”. Featuring the long-due return of Kvohst (Ex-Dødheimsgard/Code) on lyrics/vocals joining the cold, hypnotic riffs of Host (Thine), the primal drumming of Storm (Ex-My Dying Bride, Blasphemer) and introducing the bass playing of Thomas Eriksen (Mork), THE DEATHTRIP offer tickets to primeval possession and open portals to other dimensions. Demon Solar Totem captures the spirit of ancient Darkthrone, Thorns and Beherit imbued with old-English occultism and the chanting of sacred sound formulas. Otherworld Black Metal eeriness for a deep dive into spectral realms.

I've kept this album in my wishlist for a year waiting for the right time, right place. I think this is it now, for reasons known to me. And it's possibly one of the most important albums of this time (together with Mgła's Age of Excuse).
Worse still, one of the most important works of art of this time: not just in metal and not just in music.
And OK, my lovely one from them.
How tf anybody can call DsO fascists because of this remains inconceivable to me. YomaBarr

One of the best albums of any genre. The drumming is better than we have come to expect from black metal bands. The songs are both well thought-out and layed out, and it's near impossible to pick a favourite track. An1ta

I can't stop listening to this. Seriously, I bought it 3 days ago and have replayed it probably 20 times all the way through. Easily one of the best albums I've heard in a long time. Buy it on vinyl, you will not be disappointed. Revblank
