Annihilius is the unexpected black metal project of Chicago multi-instrumentalist Luca Cimariusti, also of Luggage, Basic Cable, and Heavy Times. Whereas Cimariusti is known around the Chicago scene for his minimalist takes on rock and noise rock, Annihilus is markedly different. A barrage of harsh sound and mournful melodies, the project's debut album Ghanima draws influence from classic "depressive" black metal (think Strid more than Sadness) and speculative fiction alike. Watch an exclusive video premiere of "Destroy the Future," featuring Cimariusti wandering through Chicago's desolate, urban landscapes.
