Necronautical Share Title Track ‘Apotheosis’ And Release New Album

Necronautical Share Title Track ‘Apotheosis’ And Release New Album

UK black-metal outfit Necronautical who release their new album this Friday through world-renowned extreme metal label Candlelight Records have shared the title track Apotheosis’. The band comment, 
 
“We are pleased to present the title track from our new album, ‘Apotheosis’. When we arranged the album, we treated it’s central song as the climax of its musical and lyrical concept. The lyrics are a reflection on the nature of mortality, and on the journey of a thought from its origin into a belief. The word “Apotheosis” means the highest point of something’s development, or it’s elevation to divine status. To reflect this in the music, the song was constructed to elevate the epic and melancholic melody of it’s central riff, which serves as the musical apex of this record. We hope this track will take you on a grimly euphoric journey!
