RON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS is proud to present EMBRACE OF THORNS' highly anticipated fifth album, Scorn Aesthetics, on CD and vinyl LP format.

For nearly 20 years now, EMBRACE OF THORNS have built a prolific-yet-patient catalog that defies easy categorization. Deeply rooted in ancient black metal and death metal to be sure, these Greek iconoclasts' sound nevertheless has often been "too black metal" for most death metallers and "too death metal" for most black metallers - likewise, they preempted the bestial metal by at least four years, and later on solidified songwriting finesse far "too clean" for most bestial worshipers - and sadly, wider acclaim in the underground has eluded them. For those KNOW, though, the name EMBRACE OF THORNS has come to mean a gold standard in black/death METAL, and while "acclaim" has never been in their lexicon, longtime supporters IRON BONEHEAD welcomes the band with the riveting Scorn Aesthetics.

Whereas earlier EMBRACE OF THORNS recordings - particularly their cult earliest albums, 2007's ...for I See Death in Their Eyes... and 2009's classic Atonement Ritual - melded the swarming, gibbering chaos of bestial black metal with the molten muscle of the most sepulchral death metal, with 2014's largely overlooked Darkness Impenetrable did the band cross a Rubicon, of sorts, into more streamlined and martial territory. It's a move that might've alienated the more underground-dwelling of EMBRACE OF THORNS' potential fanbase, but one that made their name ever more unique, and they continue that upward/onward trajectory with Scorn Aesthetics.

Encased in their most powerful and punishing production to date, which amplifies the band's growing clarity without sacrificing an ounce of grit, Scorn Aesthetics sees EMBRACE OF THORNS firing on all cylinders...and then crushing them underfoot. Across the album's generous-yet-concise 43 minutes, each of these seven tracks builds with patience and poise, but somehow elusively convey a sense of explosion, detonation, immolation. The effect is one of vortextural churn 'n' spun, slipstreaming the listener into a roiling, ceaselessly humid mass but offering no hope nor reprieve. More generally, Scorn Aesthetics is built upon walls of RIFFS - be they "death metal," "black metal," or just pure METAL - all coalescing into an occult fury, immediately engaging every step of the way and memorable to the very end.

Iron-willed and resolute, EMBRACE OF THORNS challenge convention and stagnation with Scorn Aesthetics. Prepare to be flattened, or step aside like a coward.

Incredible Album. Always had a bit of a problem with their previous albums. I liked them but i thought the song writing was not good enough to be top tier.
But here... it's really good! Like they finally found their identity!

Год от года делают своё дело лучше и лучше. Уменьшают неуклюжую плотность в угоду атмосферным, красивым и просто интересным местам, оставаясь олдскульно-закоренелым блэ-дэзом (IMG:style_emoticons/default/metaler.gif) .

Порадовали эти ребята, весьма серьезно. Вот сразу треком Reducto Ad Absurdum, эй, да это просто Скульпторы вот так мелодию сделать в болоте брутальности и примитивизма. Боясь услышать что нибудь упоротое и тупейшее, что любят называть красиво Black\Death, рад был разочароваться в том, что опасения чрезмерной тупости таких коллективов -не подтвердились. О, как же греки могут играть так изысканно и агрессивно! Подобно умелой жрице любви, познавшей Школу Мудрости где нибудь в Японии, они так же могут доставлять этот Импульс трепетного ожидания и приятной неги, когда ты абсолютно усталый и измученный падаешь в ложе, а Жрица делает все(и даже больше) за тебя и за себя. Ты можешь просто лежать, держа бокал и сигару и наслаждаться Процессом, который происходит одновременно и с тобой и где то в другом Мире, мира, без непроходимой упоротости и долботни по мозгам. Этому нужно учиться не один год, потому что сотворить такое -Высший пилотаж! Изысканный . Разнообразный , богемный-похоронный из множества куплетов и смены ритмов. Богемная Рапсодия Греков медленно ползет по костям сажая червоточины в белоснежной пористой ткани. Именно Богемная, как музыка Высшей Знати, а не богемская, как неверно толкуют невежды Вечный Хит Меркъюри. Рапсодия из бесчисленного числа кусочков музыкальных этюдов. Как Соитие из множества прелюдий. Как Одержимость из множества пограничных состояний. Это Эпитафия разврата и девственной Чистоты. Шлюха в образе Невинности.
