2xLP with heavy gatefold jacket + etched D side on disc 2. Standard color: clear dark red vinyl w/ black haze.
Evil, blasphemous, hideous, and utterly horrific, on their sophomore LP mysterious French black metal abomination Novae Militiae summon total armageddon. In strict adherence to France’s infamous tradition of birthing the most heinous and fucked black metal imaginable, Gash’khalah does not disappoint, spewing forth a wretched swarm of otherworldly aural annihilation that engulfs the listener like a blaze. In an attempt to harness complete and unadulterated ruin, on “Gash’khalah” Novae Militiae meticulously unravel almost an hour of vile and blasphemous sonic trauma that paints a picture of absolutely daunting horror. Through a sapient and unorthodox interweaving of unsettling atmospheres, deviant religious commentary, warped and disorienting instrumental passages, and an absolutely crushing delivery, “Gash’khalah”‘s hideous silhouette takes shape through the same realms of ruin and torment that have birthed masterpieces by other similar French black metal aberrations like Aosoth, Deathspell Omega, Antaeus, etc.
Originally released on CD in 2017 by Goathorned Productions – now reissued on vinyl and tape by Sentient Ruin (US), and by Argento Records (EU vinyl).
