Chaos Records are proud to announce the agreement with the Oakland based dark metal act MEFITIS for the release of their upcoming debut album in 2019.
MEFITIS sound is the total expression of nordic death/black metal of the 1990’s. The band combined elements from both styles to create their own path and vision with a result they call dark metal. If you’re into acts like early At The Gates, Sacramentum, Adramelech and Dawn, keep your eyes open for MEFITIS inminent debut album.
MEFITIS was formed in 2007 by Pendath and Vatha with the ambition to write material combining key elements of death and black metal. Aged 13 and 17, they shared already a fondness for the great works of the 1980’s and 90’s, and quickly began composing. Shows were performed with varying lineups, but the core of the band has remained the same. They resolved to always create metal with a heavy sense of dynamism and structure; with songs as “riff mazes.” The earliest stirrings exist only in the form of crude demos and live recordings. Now, MEFITIS is prepared to fully realize this musical vision known as Dark Metal.
Dark Metal is the sound of a dark take on modernity. It is a name you may have seen before, but one that hasn’t fully manifested until now. Mefitis claims Dark Metal as the path forward, bound not to genre conventions, but to songs which speak with intensity and precision. The 2018 single, “Widdrim Hymn”, initiated the assault on inferior metal with three incendiary compositions. But that’s a mere glimpse of the inferno that awaits for listeners of the MEFITIS debut full length.
