Acherontas stream new album at

Today, Greek black metal vanguard Acherontas stream the entirety of their highly anticipated fifth album, Ma IoN (Formulas of Reptilian Unification) - released today via W.T.C. Productions - at Terrorizer magazine's website. Since their metamorphosis into a new entity in 2007, these Greeks have staunchly upheld the magick 'n' mysticism of classic, second-wave black metal. Over the course of four, increasingly ambitious albums - capped by Amenti - Ψαλμοί Αίματος και Αστρικά Οράματα, released in 2013 by W.T.C. to international critical acclaim - Acherontas have explored vast vistas of the imagination with a potently kaleidoscopic style of black metal that ably bridges traditionalism and the avant-garde. Now, with Ma IoN (Formulas of Reptilian Unification), the band continue their creative ascent by paradoxically descending deeper into the depths of the occult underworld. Across 11 expansive tracks in a time-evaporating 70 minutes, Ma IoN explores a wide swath of sonic territory, ranging Acherontas' characteristically windswept style of songwriting to twisted 'n' twisting variations of it to, most crucially, ritualistic soundscapes comprising ancient Far Eastern & shamanic instrumentation. Taken together, it's a total sensory experience that effortlessly guides the listener across chilly night skies, barren desert plains, humid marshlands, and the fiery abyss of the unknown. In their never-ending quest to seek the deepest wisdom, Acherontas are here joined by a whole host of incredible guest musicians, including members of Abigor, Malign, Nightbringer, Black Seas of Infinity, Emme Ya, and Tatir amongst others. What results is a shockingly bold, daring vision of black metal: Ma IoN (Formulas of Reptilian Unification).
