Perth’s post-black metal quintet Illyria is set to release their full-length album, ‘The Carpathian Summit‘, on April 26. The band premiered the single “Kenopsia” through triple j’s The Racket this week and dropped the first video for the single in anticipation. 

‘The Carpathian Summit’ is Illyria’s sophomore effort and will follow on from their 2016 self-titled debut release, adding 11 new tracks to their repertoire of diverse styles and symbolic motifs. “Kenopsia” leads the way for the upcoming album, showcasing Illyria’s chaotic cacophony of crafted sounds. 

Inspired by fellow contemporaries AlcestDeafheavenLantlôs and Les Discrets, Illyria’s goal is to captivate on the gracious melodies and pulsating rhythms of their hybrid genre whilst promoting the accessibility of post-black metal to new listeners around the world. The band have already shared the stage with musical acts such as Ne ObliviscarisPliniAlcestCaligula’s HorseLindsay Schoolcraft and Make Them Suffer with the vision of expanding their horizons.

The Perth outfit will be launching ‘The Carpathian Summit’ with fellow homegrown talent DeadspaceYomi Ship and Waste Not at Badlands Bar on May 3rd. 

Illyria’s brand new album ‘The Carpathian Summit’ will be released on Friday April 26 and can be pre-ordered from Friday March 8 at iTunes & Apple Music/Spotify/Google Play and all good online stores and streaming outlets. Single “Kenopsia” is out now, as is the video clip.
