Hecate Enthroned Premiere Lyric Video For “Erebus And Terror” Feat. Sarah Jezebel Deva (Ex-Cradle Of Filth, Etc.)

Hecate Enthroned have premiered a lyric video for their song “Erebus And Terror.” This track features Sarah Jezebel Deva (ex-Cradle Of Filth, etc.) and it appears on the band’s latest album “Embrace Of The Godless Aeon.”

Bassist Dylan Hughes commented:

“On an album full of epic tracks, ‘Erebus and Terror’ still stands out as a monster. Massive and powerful, it creeps between eerie dark chills and huge powerhouse sections that utilize the full armory of soaring orchestras and crushing guitars to deliver a skillfully-crafted song. With the incredible vocal talents of Sarah Jezebel Deva, this track is lifted to another level of emotion and feeling, as she delivered a performance that matches the intensity of the music. To have Sarah with us gives our music and writing another dimension – a real organic element that can lift or carry a song through the emotion ranges.”

Vocalist Joe Stamps added:

“’Erebus and Terrror’ is about the ill-fated Franklin Expedition, in which the sailors who were stranded in the Northwest Passage were reported to have begun to cannibalize one another. The lyrics describe a loss of humanity through sickness and desperation and even compares these to lycanthropy – men becoming beasts.”

Hecate Enthroned Premiere “Revelations In Autumn Flame” Video

Hecate Enthroned have premiered a new video for their new song “Revelations In Autumn Flame.” This track is from the band’s new album “Embrace Of The Godless Aeon,” which will be released on January 25.

Bassist Dylan Hughes said the following about the song:

“Revelations is about modern religious fundamentalism being a reaction to a rise of secularism and a rise in people being more educated about the universe and abandoning belief in God because of it. It’s about theistic religion almost in its death throes and becoming more extreme because of it, but a more enlightened mankind will come through this and ‘rise like a phoenix from the flames'”.

He also added the following about the video, which was shot during the group’s recent performance at the Tabernacl Chapel in Llandundo, North Wales:

“Where better to shoot this video than in a chapel during a dark cold December in North Wales? The show was set up on the pulpit in front of pews filled with a congregation of metal-fueled blasphemers, their breath visible in the cold, dank air. The atmosphere created the malevolent and darkly energetic performance caught in the video, recorded by our good friend Dan Cookson and edited by Jeff Grindstopher of Grindstopher Productions. Watch closely throughout for the ongoing threat from the enveloping icy embrace of Cthulhu.”
