When I picture the black magic cult that rocket scientist Jack Parsons and Scientology creator L. Ron Hubbard facilitated together in '40's LA (yes, that was a thing) at the Pasadena Lodge, this Aevangelist [Editorial note: IO's own Jon Rosenthal performs in the live incarnation of Aevangelist] album is exactly the kind of music I bet they were listening to during satanic ceremonies.

Their 4th full length and first for the label 20 Buck Spin, Enthrall To The Void Of Bliss is also the first record Aevangelist has fully released domestically in the US. Not just blackened death metal, this record has a darkly spirited feeling that isn't easy to shake.

Aevangelist himself described it as such: "And so hear now, for yourself, the familiar voice of the Abysscape rendered in the cadences of your departed family and friends; where the flesh ends and true destiny awaits, forsake all earthbound perception of time and space, of good and evil, of death beyond death, and enthrall to the void of bliss..."

Listen to the album in full below. It will be released on October 9th.
