Robert C. Kozletsky Epic and fucking MAJESTIC!! It's like the heavens are shivering, only to fall in smoldering ash when the final track commences. Swedish black metal is always high in quality, but Mephorash's new album is almost criminal in how perfect it is. Thank you for this curse. Favorite track: Shem Ha Mephorash.

puncakethethird On the lengthy side for a black metal album, but if you can get past that it's an absolute must have. Sanguinem is absolutely spellbinding. Favorite track: Sanguinem.

sp0res This is one of the few albums this year that gives me chills from start to finish. Passages that are beautiful and hateful simultaneously. Spiteful and angry, yet mesmerizing.

Arrogant Bastard Strong Album of the Year Contender

Shem Ha Mephorash is infested with remarkably eerie passages and hair-raising chants/hymns malevolently painting a hellish landscape. Infernal blackened crescendos serve to shatter the vile tranquility and give way to vicious double-bass work, infernal howls and haunting chorus lines.
Mephorash have forged a blackened gem worthy of AotY. It will take a monumental album to claim this year, Mephorash just might.

His Infernal Majesty is pleased – as am I.

Blaine Ooksgiver AOTY already for me. Shem Ha Mephorash is the band's strongest album in their discography. Occult Black Metal that boasts itself above other releases in the genre with its heavy atmosphere and deep immersion. The slow build ups lead to monstrous choruses with deadly siren songs, explosive double bass drums, haunting guitar work. The album uses it's mid to downtempo style wisely. Sanguinem lures you in immediately with its siren song and commands your attention with its heavy tom drums. I eagerly await my mega bundle.

10/10 HAIL MEPHORASH Favorite track: Sanguinem.

about

SHADOW RECORDS (distributed & marketed by Regain Records) is proud to present Mephorash´s highly anticipated fourth album, Shem Ha Mephorash, on double LP, CD, MC and digital. format on the 18th of April

Since their formation in 2010, MEPHORASH have been a study in patience and persistence. Every step of the way, their moves have been tactical and decisive, with each work breathing a totality of vision consistent with the band's deeply occultic/esoteric beliefs. Granted, the name MEPHORASH may not be the most recognizable - yet - but with last year's The Third Woe 7" on SHADOW RECORDS, a glorious new epoch has begun.

With their current lineup including past and present members of Malign and Ofermod, MEPHORASH have deep roots within Sweden's esteemed black metal underground - the same underground which spawned the now-worldwide "religious"/orthodox black metal movement - but with Shem Ha Mephorash do they boldly separate themselves from standard tropes. A literally MASSIVE album at 74 minutes, the eight songs comprising Shem Ha Mephorash are each a corridor, an entire sprawling landscape, unto itself. Naturally, the way MEPHORASH weave all these various, virulent fibers together bespeaks a grandiose vision: an esoteric journey through the concepts and ideas behind the Shem Ha Mephorash system, the 72-fold explicit name of god. Wisely utilizing all the tools in their generous arsenal, the quartet take a largely mid-to-downtempo approach, lumbering forward with molten might and a more mystical aspect - in some senses, one could label it "ceremonial" - judiciously maximizing each construct's potential before subtly weaving a new tale. Of course, bouts of cryogenic speed do crop up, but do so with malicious excitement. You never quite know where these corridors will lead... Or, simply, each track of Shem Ha Mephorash is a journey; taken together, they create a unified, endlessly fascinating journey to the beyond and back.

The time of reckoning is at hand. The second decade of the millennium is nearly over, and Swedish black metal is in sore need of unshackled invigoration. Confidently striding forward, ready to claim their throne, are MEPHORASH with an album for the ages. Explicit on the tongue, it bears the name Shem Ha Mephorash, and is graced with suitably ceremonial artwork courtesy of José Gabriel Alegría Sabogal.
