Dark Essence Records / Soulfood
Dark Essence Records is proud to present the debut album of UK trio FIVE THE HIEROPHANT, whose instrumental music is composed of ritualistic soundscapes fused with Psychedelic Black Metal, Jazz, Post Metal and Ambient.
“Over Phlegethon” will be the follow up to the 2015 self-titled EP "Five the Hierophant", which was released on Witching Hour Productions. The trio has created an utterly bleak, dark and devestating album with “Over Phlegethon”, combining heavy riffs, drone-like atmospheres and a black metal like intensity. Using instruments like djembe, rag-dung, violin, bowed guitars and saxophone together with a normal band set-up, FIVE THE HIEROPHANT has created a very unique and diverse soundscape.
Commenting on their upcoming collaboration with Dark Essence Records, FIVE THE HIEROPHANT state:
"It is with happiness and great pride that we can announce that Five the Hierophant is about to embark on a journey that we hope will take us far, far out. And you're coming with us. We have joined forces with good people of Dark Essence records from Bergen, and are heading towards murky waters over Phlegethon like there's no tomorrow".
