With the release of ILLUM ADORA' upcoming EP MIASMA OF A DAMNED SOUL drawing near, we want to give you a little insight about the project!
Since seven years now, the band releases at least one underground gem per year, after a full length traditionally an EP follows - and this time MIASMA OF A DAMNED SOUL shows once again progress in songwriting and arrangements, even though the songs on the EP are rooted in old greek scene with influences of very old Rotting Christ, Zemial, Necromantia and Varathron – combined with their very own style that is called NON SERVIAM BLACK METAL.
The German band unleashes another quality release that refuses to bow down to nowadays listening habits and still goes on with their very own special sound, not that sterile and same sounding one that everyone seems to produce these days. This is imperfect perfect, just like all the old 2nd Wave black metal bands that brought us closer to this music and ideology. If you cannot take the 2nd wave seriously anymore because it is old and rusty and not contemporary, you will not find comfort in Illum Adora. But if you still appreciate the musical direction once forged by the old BM Heroes from around the globe, you will definitely appreciate MIASMA OF A DAMNED SOUL.
ILLUM ADORA are still these two maniacal scythe-wielders, Hurricane Hellfukker (founder, vocalist, ex-ZARATHUSTRA/CRUEL FORCE, in the picture) and Mortüüm (drums and percussion, COUNTESS) and once again they worked with the same session-line up from the Netherlands and Italy that also recorded the previous album OPHIDIAN KULT, which was highly anticipated by the fans and sold in different pressings on MC, CD and LP since then. Vinyl reissues are already released or in the works for their earlier material.
Within almost 23 minutes you will get the most varied stuff that one can imagine, from the northern sounding opener that is raging like a beast from Hades, to the almost Death Metal like "Κέρβερος" which is a tribute to the Hellhound of the greek Netherworld himself: the three-headed Kerberos. This song will be premiering first with a nice lyric video in early May. "Miasma of a Damned Soul" is the third song on this EP and will be the official blasphemous video clip, that will be released on Youtube in Early June! Usually Cover versions are at the end of an album, but this time "Sleeping under Tartarus" (Zemial) is song number 4, because it fitted so much better and gives the EP are pretty great kick and ultimate just to end the EP with the epic "Ancient Nekromanteion", a tribute to Hecate and her necromantical sorcery!
The EP can be already preordered here:

"DIVINITY'S FALL is a really strong record that doesn't get boring even after repeated listening. Malphas - CH deliver cold Black Metal with a certain recognition value and effortlessly manage the balancing act between bickering dissonances and powerful melodies. An absolute recommendation to every friend of dark sounds!"

"Melodic, varied, cleanly produced and mixed, so that you can even hear the bass (!) from time to time - this is what black metal in 2022 should sound like. So it falls, the divinity. And Malphas deliver the perfect soundtrack to go with it. Great piece!"
Brilliant 14/15 score for DIVINITY'S FALL by Malphas - CH from Folkmetal.at! Thank you very much!

"Interludes with nocturnal noises, the eerie whistling of cold winds and occasional acoustic passages contribute greatly to the successful atmosphere and evoke the image of devil-like figures in chains dancing through icy nights. The chosen theme and Black Metal fit together perfectly and if you have a heart for both, you should join this dance of the devils."

"My only advice in front of a work like this, is just to listen, many times, with attention to all the songs to grasp, at each passage, a different nuance or a detail that, all together, paint this TUIFLSRIJTT which, without a doubt, will satisfy the palate of lovers of the Teutonic and epic sound of black metal."

Important message from Chotzä:
"CHOTZÄ will play their last performance as a live band at the Barther Metal Open Air. This decision was made for private and professional reasons.
CHOTZÄ still stands for swiss dialect black metal and will continue to celebrate this as a studio project in the future.
When and if a live band will be put together again is not planned or known at the moment.
Countless liters of beer, sweat, blood and color we have laid down on the stages of europe in the last ten years. In dirty cellars and dusty pubs. As a composer and head of this project, I now devote myself to other aspects of the visual arts, which have top priority for me.
A thank you to everyone who has crossed our path in the last few years and with whom I and my current and former band members have drunk and indulged in black metal.
A huge "fuck you" to everyone who wanted to put obstacles in our way or me or who are still trying today. You have failed!
If you want to experience the band one last time, you should secure a ticket for the barther metal open air.
So, if you want to see Chotzä for one final time, here's your chance! In addition, you get the chance to experience Malphas - CH as well!
