    Thus Defiled - An Unhallowed Legacy

    Label: Shadowflame Productions

    Release date: 06.06.16

    While Thus Defiled have already announced the digital re-release of their two sought after EPs – A Darker Beauty and Fire Serpent Dawn – that was never going to be enough to satisfy the die-hard fans. For them these treasured parts of the Thus Defiled legacy were always going to deserve something more...and here is everything they have been hoping for...

    Both A Darker Beauty and Fire Serpent Dawn are set to be released together in a lavish grimoire-style packaging, wrapped in images of the arcane, the demonic, and the infernal denizens of the multitudinous planes of hell. All six of these skin-flaying tracks of wild magic and furious metal appear in their newly remastered forms and together represent a breathtaking firestorm of an assault on the senses. Of all the many, many albums of British black metal that have followed in the wake of the pioneering gods of Venom, there have been precious few that can stand their ground when confronted with An Unhallowed Legacy. All but the elite must drop their gaze and shuffle back into the shadows with all their pretence and weakness exposed in the blaze of Thus Defiled’s unholy fire.

    An Unhallowed Legacy is a documenting of two incredibly powerful releases from British black metal’s history, but also a monumental release in its own right. Beautifully presented, this is an essential release, destined to make an indelible mark upon the scene – and one that will command respect and reverence for years to come. A fitting testament to a band that has commanded incredible reviews since their birth in 1992, found the ear - and radio airplay - of legendary DJ John Peel (of the eponymous Peel sessions) and joined artists such as Black Sabbath on an album covering the UK's rich occult musical heritage.
