We’re excited to announce that elusive Italian mystical dark death metal conjurors HADIT are about to return after six years of silence from their grandiose “Introspective Contemplation of the Microcosmus” EP with their long awaited debut album “With Joy and Ardour Through the Incommensurable Path”, slated for a May 7 2021 release on vinyl for North America and digital via Sentient Ruin, on cassette tape via Caligari Records, and on CD and EU vinyl via Terror from Hell Records.
Leading up the early May 2021 release, the track “A Digression and Her Eternal Domain Above the Atmosphere“ has been Premiered by Scene Point Blank, with the renowned metal blog stating that “The majority of this album thrashes and seethes, but it has some comparatively subdued doomy moments as well. Personally, I dug the shifting rhythmic structures, the way individual tracks seemed to do any number of different things while they played out, and the manner in which certain melodic motifs are utilized to hold things together“. You can check out the track and read the full feature HERE.
The towering new album is an obfuscating spell of dark cosmological death metal destruction shrouded in crushing dissonance, otherworldly atmospheres, and an aura of profound mysticism and esotericism. With death metal ritualized and used almost as an aural rite of passage to a higher order, on the devastating new opus the recluse Italian duo explore concepts pertaining to time, cyclicality, fatality, and to death as the true engine and ultimate motivator of life, and submit to the symbolism of chaos to access the higher knowledge and order which comes through it. Inspired by ancient black and death metal forces like Inquisition, Incantation, Morbid Angel, Immolation, and Archgoat as well as by occult scriptures found in ancient monotheistic doctrines and theology, “With Joy and Ardour Through the Incommensurable Path” is a supernatural extreme metal crucible that plumbs the darkest depths of sonic ruin and of deviant arcane esotericism to harness the primordial order from chaos and the inaccessible truths on mankind’s true nature and existence that it harbors.
The Italian dark occult death metal alchemists have been silently forging their own strain of crepuscular cosmological death metal darkness since at least 2012 when the duo self-released their “Creating a Kult” demo establishing themselves as one of the most cryptic and obscure new entities to appear in the Italian extreme metal underground. After a period of dormancy their foreboding and darkened strain of mystical and chaotic death metal appeared again, evolved and highly metamorphosed, and found further refinement and a higher degree of expression in the mesmerizing “Introspective Contemplation of the Microcosmus” EP which was released on tape in 2015 by Caligari Records (becoming one of the founding release pillars of the label), and on CD by Italian extreme metal forge Terror From Hell Records. It was this EP which first truly materialized a full and comprehensive depiction of Hadit’s tenebrous and twisted death metal twilight made of erratic and formless patterns and layers of abysmal guitar fretwork annihilation, demonic vocals, telluric drum work, and crepuscular atmospheres emanating from a darkened dimension used as a conduit to funnel their abhorrent lovecraftian and occult conceptual horrors. While cryptic and somewhat undecipherable in its sound true shape, with its monstrous sound and abysmal atmospheres “Introspective Contemplation of the Microcosmus” went on to become one of 2015’s best kept secrets in extreme metal and of the most fascinating and strongest underground death metal debuts for that year. Innately elusive and undecipherable the band followed the release of their “Introspective Contemplation of the Microcosmus” EP with another period of lengthy and quiet dormancy punctuated in rare occasions by a few live appearances to share the stage with elite death metal beasts like Bolzer, Funebrarum, Archgoat, Incantation and Dead Congregation, all while the band presumably hammered away at their proper debut full length album in complete seclusion. This album would eventually take final shape sometime in 2019 in the form of “With Joy and Ardour Through the Incommensurable Path” – the most foreboding and annihilating incarnation of occult and otherworldly death metal tyranny conceived by the duo this far, to be released in May 2021 once again by Caligari Records on tape, by Terror From Hell Records on CD and for the first time by Sentient Ruin handling the vinyl release for the Western Hemipshere in collaboration with Terror From Hell Records handling the Eastern Hemisphere.
