Sticky *EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE* King Leviathan - "Sanctification"

Posted by MAK on 26/06/17

"Paean Heretica" will be the first release via new independent label Infernum Records and will be physically available on August 5th, 2017.

Or were they tricked into committing acts of reprehensible brutality to appease a loathsome god?

When writing our psalm, we decided to craft a story of the crusaders after their passing. Trapped and facing the unending horror of what they performed over and over again, forever being punished, and baring the weight of their betrayal
