Weed Priest Release New Video ‘Vampyr’ From Their Forthcoming Album ‘Consummate Darkness’ Released On Halloween Via Cursed Monk Records

 

 

Lo and behold! From the depths of the smoke filled dungeons, from the tops of the mountains of madness, the priest is coming back with the new opus. Four hymns depicting the unholy ceremonies of union with darkness, four sermons of crawling doom, four spits into the face of conformity and meekness.

Consummate Darkness is available to preorder now via the Cursed Monk Bandcamp, where you will also be able to stream Weed Priest‘s brand new track, “Vampyr”

Upon album preorders, fans will receive an instant download of new track Vampyr


Adam (guitar, vocals), Ragas (bass) and Adrian (drums) were brought together by 
the love of classic Black Sabbath sound, seventies psychedelic rock, doom/sludge metal and their interest in occultism in 2009. In 2011 Weed Priest released a well received demo CD. A grandiose debut self-titled full length album came out in 2013 and is now sold out. It was followed by “Worship” EP (2014). In 2014 the drum throne was taken over by Michael. Second guitar player Sean also joined. Two split releases followed: split single with Northern Irish doom brothers Astralnaut (February 2015) and split EP with Italian doomsters Black Capricorn (September 2016).
Weed Priest’s second much anticipated full length album “Consummate Darkness” is coming out on Samhain (31th of October) 2017 as vinyl, cd and digital via Cursed Monk Records.

Yesterday, they released their promotional video for the track ‘Vampyr’ and fully announced their long awaited return! 

We were sent on their album in advance, and I have to say it’s a truly excellent piece of work! The album contains four tracks in all at a running time of 39:02 in length. So despite a apparent shortage of tracks, it’s clearly a full length album! 

The album has many samples as example within and I won’t spoil the albums opening track ‘Witch’s Curse’ but an album doesn’t start any better in my opinion! 

This is truly an album you just sit back and let flow as a body of work. The tracks are excellent singular, but as an album it’s another level. There’s some excellent guitar playing on this album and all held together by fantastic Drumming and Bass. 

The previously mentioned ‘Witch’s Curse’ starts things off in excellent fashion followed by ‘Vampyr’ which is here for you to stream in full. ‘SkyDaddy’ is up next and concluded by ‘The Mass’. 

Personally, Witch’s Curse and The Mass are my favourite tracks. Both Vampyr and SkyDaddy as excellent so that speaks volumes of how highly I rate this album! 

In regards to this genre, Weed Priest have created the best of its kind released by an Irish band this year and without doubt one of the best Irish releases of 2017. 

Weed Priest have truly came of age with this release. An absolute classic! 

9.7/10
