Quote:
"There are also a few concept albums in the can. One of them is in the works since 2012-2013 and this year is going to finally come to completion. It's a project centered on the Tarot: each participant has been invited to compose an exclusive track inspired by the archetypes, the magic, the hidden knowledge and the symbols of the Major Arcana. Most bands have chosen its own card and its personal approach to it. Many have taken inspiration from Aleister Crowley's Thoth Tarot, being Crowley already part of their artistic background; others have chosen different Tarot decks and interpretations, adapting the cards' subjects and themes to their own vision, or bringing out their cultural values. The artists involved are:

The Fool - Dødsengel
The Magus - Dødsengel
The Priestess - Serpent Noir
The Empress - Ævangelist
The Emperor - HEAD OF THE DEMON
The Hierophant - Verbum Verus
The Lovers - Serpent Ascending
The Chariot - Acherontas
Adjustment - Shibalba
The Hermit - YSENGRIN
Fortune - Elysian Blaze
Lust - Serpent Ascending
The Hanged Man - Occultation
Death - Lüüp
The Art - Khanus
The Devil - Lo-Ruhamah
The Tower - Charnel Winds
The Star - MOSAIC
The Moon - Nightbringer
The Sun - YSENGRIN
Aeon - Zemial
The Universe - Midnight Odyssey

Over the years the renowned graphic artist Marko Marov (Vatra i Sumpor) has patiently drawn the cards according to the bands' lyrics, ideas and explicit instructions, or - when not provided - to his own imagination. To give you the measure and scope of this work, here are a few cards that Marov drew for Occultation's "The Hanged Man", Acherontas' "The Chariot", Serpent Ascending's "The Lovers" and Elysian Blaze's "Fortune". The concept album is scheduled for late 2018 and will come with special packaging."


As for the new album, replying to a fan comment, the record label had this to say:
Quote:
"Yes, the band is not done, the guy has just been busy with other musical projects, but a new Elysian Blaze album is in his plans. I guess he already has some material ready. His track for the Tarot project was written a few years ago, and I think it will be one of the firsts I will use for promotion........"


I've spoken to Mutatiis through email once and he confirmed to me early last year that he was planning on releasing one song by the end of the year (which obviously didn't happen) and then the new album would come afterwards. Looks like this is still the plan, but just got pushed back a little. We haven't heard a peep from Mutatiis in almost 5 years, so I believe the wait will be worth it. "Blood Geometry" took 6 years to perfect and it ended up being a masterpiece. I expect nothing less from this new single and new album.

The return.
Elysian Blaze presents a brand new, stand-alone track entitled "The Virtue of Suffering".
"The Virtue of Suffering" serves as a vehicle of re-emergence after years of silence.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Light the way O Spirit,
through Endless night.
Light the way back Morning Star,
lead us beyond the light."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
*NOTE: To be clear, after years of unsuccessfully trying to record the follow up album to "Blood Geometry", I decided to focus my energies on recording and releasing a single track. As you may be aware, the material for the next full length album has been written for quite a few years now; I just need to record it. So instead of starting and re-starting the recording process with nothing to show for it, creating a single track has allowed me to finally share new music with you all. In this period of silence I've had to re-assess the ways in which I create and manifest the multiverse of Elysian Blaze. Being able to finally share new music is energizing and strengthening. The prospect of recording a new album doesn't seem so daunting now, and my focus is now on finally completing that goal. Thank you for your patience. Kindest regards, ~M.

They're worth it, mate. Blood Geometry was a masterpiece. I'm looking forward to whatever he's got going on.

Blood Geometry was a masterpiece of putting me to sleep. 2 hours of utter, profound boredome.

Blood Geometry is a bit of an enigma. I can't imagine trying to give that album my full attention. It's perfectly enjoyable - as background music. I prefer Elysian Blaze's other releases.

This IVH compilation thing looks cool as fuck though.

I saw this announcement today as well, and the Elysian Blaze song was what really got my attention. I look forward to this release, it seems pretty cool.

I'm more interested in seeing this whole collaboration together as a whole. There's a whole wave of styles with Nightbringer, Ævangelist, Zemial, and Midnight Odyssey all participating.

Hopefully the Elysian Blaze piece sounds better than "Black Hole Euphoria" from the last time he did a split. :boring:

Hit the nail on the head. Yet another one of those albums that's just a waste of magnificent cover art.

Haven't heard any of the other stuff, but Blood Geometry is pretty lame. I've heard about half of it and the metal parts were basically riding on washes of reverb rather than actually interesting riffs or music. That and it's bloated for no good reason. Can't wait to see what Bull of Heaven-esque thing the guy's concocted this time around.

I like the band, but it's hard when one of their most incessant fanboys is one of this forum's biggest idiots. Disc 1 of Blood Geometry is better than disc 2 overall, though I really like "Pyramid of the Cold Son". But the longest piece, "Blood of Ancients, Blood of Hatred" is way too long and meandering and kinda pointless. I get more out of listening to Levitating the Carnal and even Cold Walls and Apparitions in their entirety.

I don't know what "blood geometry" are people talking about here because the one I listened to was one monster of an album. I have to admit I haven't listened to it in a long time but I remember it being pretty damn good.

The link in OP's sig is pretty cool. Neat doomy black metal breakdown with Burzum synths. Not sure if it's worth sitting through 2 hours of music though, who has time for that? Couldn't get into that first Midnight Odyssey double album for the same reason.

Done! Hope the full album arrives this year!

Don't care what the bitches say. "Blood Geometry" is a masterpiece.
