WAXGOAT260 Kommodus (Aus) - Kommodus - Double GREEN LP
Rising up from the sun stained plains of ancient Latium, those lands called home by Rome’s great scions: Julius Caesar, Augustus, Pompey, and the Lupine Warleader himself, Kommodus—that warrior emperor of tribal return and martial glory. Released in the age of 2020, many laid claim to incantation of the year, sacrifices bled upon marble in its name; now, for the first time, this Jupiter blessed incantation has been meticulously pressed onto double picture wax disc—as well as raven and transparent cerulean wax—by the ever looming iron hand of GoatowaRex.
Easily the height of the Lupine Warleader’s battle campaign thus far, Kommodus’ debut full-length features its greatest collection of spells to date; all rife and alive with the old glory of Rome and that great empire of crimson imperialism, the poetry of an ancient people evoked in heaves. A relentless assault upon the mind; a whirlwind of infectious tremolo melody, devastating breakdown percussion, howling vocal oration, immersive atmosphere and a dedicated passion for Ancient Rome to complete the ritual full circle.
Those who have yet to experience the complete Kommodus experience through the medium of physical artefact, now is their chance obtain a piece of that history for themselves—an ode to a world of ever marching centurions, fratricidal myth, decadent philosophy, grim heroes and cunning villains. Kommodus brings everything to his war chest that all acolytes, of any black metal persuasion, would be sorely missing out on the dizzying array of valiant weapons at his disposal. Long may Lepidus Plague and his wherlegions span the lands of Latium. Long may Kommodus forever reign.
