Hells Headbangers announces the signing of Australia's Eskhaton. The first fruit of this union shall be the band's new mini-album, Horracle, which is currently being recorded and should see release on CD and 12" vinyl formats by the end of this year.
Eskhaton is CYCLONIC DEATH METAL: absolute chaos and total death - psychotic, bestial, raw blistering ferocity and horror atmosphere – from Melbourne, Australia. Eskhaton means Total Death: the end of all things and time.
Formed by Invokocide (vocals/guitars) in 1999, with the addition of Whirwindead (guitars) in 2002, it was not until November 2008 when Hammerkill joined on drums that the lineup was able to record, with bass work done by Whirlwindead and Invokocide until a bassist could be found. Two albums and an EP were recorded and released between 2011 and 2014, with the EP being unreleased until 2018. The lineup changed in 2015 when Militiarkh was possessed to take hold of the drums, who later also did live shows for Hobbs Angel of Death.
Live shows for Eskhaton began 2014 after Abyssnil (Ignivomous) joined on bass 2014-16, and following live efforts of Telesmaniak 2016, Christfallen 2017, Keraborous (Inverloch/Ignivomous) 2018/19. In 2020, Sublimorkunt was possessed for the bass role and the coming Horracle recording plus future recordings.
Eskhaton has now released three albums, with 2018’s Omegalitheos being the latest offering and which sent the band on a barrage of destruction in Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, and twice in Europe between 2018-2019, alongside such bands as Incantation, Cemetery Urn, Impetuous Ritual, Diocletian, Heresiarch, Sabbat (Japan), King Parrot, Nocturnal Graves, Watain, Cult Of Fire, Krisiun, Drawn And Quartered, Funebrarum, Krypts, Interment, Venenum, Mitochondrion, Force Of Darkness, Weregoat, Tombmold, Godless, Nocturnus AD, Full Of Hell, Mispyrming, Inverloch, Beheaded, Altarage, and many more, including two performances at the Brutal Assault fest in consecutive years plus the afterparty show in Prague.
Eskhaton is currently preparing to record the Horracle' MLP followed by work on the fourth album of decaying occultism and tortured extremity of Total Fucking Death! Horracle will feature 30 minutes over five tracks. The record will showcase Eskhaton’s most diverse songwriting, spanning their fastest and slowest tracks. Expect chaos and epic evil, visions of future Total Death, and a dark, ferocious attack with murky, doomed atmosphere.
Says the band, "We are thrilled to be joining forces with Hells Headbangers to release our recorded madness to the savage and sick ones!" More news to be revealed when ready. For more info, consult the links below.
