We are proud to present the debut album of the 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 self-titled EP "Five the Hierophant", which was released in 2015 on Witching Hours Productions. With “Over Phlegethon”, the trio has created an utterly bleak, dark and devastating album that combines heavy riffs, drone-like atmospheres and an intensity you only find in Black Metal. Using instruments like the djembe, rag-dung, violin, bowed guitars and saxophone, alongside a normal band set-up, Five the Hierophant, regale the listeners with unique and varied soundscapes on this, their debut full-length album.
Commenting on their upcoming collaboration with Dark Essence Records, Five the Hierophant had this to say:
"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".
