Philadelphia’s DEVIL MASTER’s roots in ritual magick have never been more prominent than on their highly anticipated new album, ‘Ecstasies Of Never Ending Night’.

If we were to say to you “Lo-Fi Blackened-Punk Metal” would you be interested? Well, you should be.

Devil Master encapsulates the golden era of tape trading, with all the thrill and grotesque excitement of a gripping live show [from what we’ve heard].

Recorded live to analog tape by Pete DeBoer (Blood Incantation, Spectral Voice), Ecstasies expands on the warped riffing and dark atmospheres that have already propelled DEVIL MASTER as one of the underground’s most unique and unfettered bands.

From the band’s blackened punk maelstrom of “Acid Black Mass” [listen below] to the spiraling deathrock of “Abyss In Vision”, and the layers of refined atmosphere on the closer, “Never Ending Night”, lead guitarist Darkest Prince of All Rebellion shines across a collection of fiery, tumultuous riffs – Lyrically, vocalist Disembody Through Unparalleled Pleasure laces Ecstasies with life-affirming blasphemy and existential dread.

Ecstasies of Never Ending Night witnesses DEVIL MASTER at its core. Vocalist Disembody Through Unparalleled Pleasure has assumed the role of bassist, strengthening the songwriting alongside Darkest Prince and founding member/rhythm guitarist Infernal Moonlight Apparition. Fresh blood was required and found in drummer/keyboardist Festering Terror in Deepest Catacomb (a.k.a. Chris Ulsh of Power Trip and Iron Age).

Ecstasies of Never Ending Night, is released on April 29th via Replase Records, and proves to be a crucial addition to the pantheon of evil satanic metal. In the end, magick reigns!
