Nine Records will release Evangelist’s »Ad Mortem Festimaus« December 18, 2020 on CD and limited edition vinyl (300 copies).
In times of doom, Evangelist returns with songs of death and destruction. The band was first started in the spring of 2008, with inspiration mainly coming from the obscure epic metal scene in the U.S., epic doom metal pioneers and metal classics in general. Major lyrical inspiration came from the twisted minds of R.E. Howard, H.P. Lovecraft, history, religion and spirituality of the ages gone by.
Their debut album, »In Partibus Infidelium«, was recorded between 2009 and 2011 and released in June 2011 by PsycheDOOMelic Records. Their sophomore record, »Doominicanes«, was recorded between 2012 and 2013 and released in May 2013 by Doomentia Records. In October 2014, a collaboration with Capilla Ardiente troops was revealed in the form of the infamous Capilla Ardiente/Evangelist 12” split on which Evangelist delivered their own version of Mayhem’s classic »Freezing Moon«. In December 2018, after a short hiatus, their third album, »Deus Vult«, was released by Nine Records.
Almost one year later, recording sessions began on two new songs, as well as a rendition of one of Manilla Road’s finest tracks, »Mystification«. These three songs were paired with another three tracks recorded during the »Deus Vult« recording sessions, and will ultimately be released as an EP, entitled »Ad Mortem Festimaus«.
Recorded, mixed and mastered at JRStudio between Anno Domini 2016-2018 (tracks 3-5) and 2019-2020 (tracks 1,2 and 6) in two separate recording sessions by Jacek “Racek” Gruszka. Cover art drawing by Diego Spezzoni. Cover layout and packaging design by Xaay.
