Cape Town, South Africa: blackened death metal band Nebula Disrupt has often been marginalized for it’s delightful extremity, but the release of the bands new Libations of Omnipotence five-track EP today may likely open up a new chapter.
Offering up a teaser sample from the EP earlier this week with the song ‘Hiraeth Exile’, the showcase represents work being done by Llewellyn Kapp at Worlds End Studios; a production enigma which appeared very suddenly in Cape Town in 2015. The track features a guest appearance by death metal vocalist Pieter Pieterse – the only guest to feature on Libations of Omnipotence – from The Fallen Prophets which, incidentally, released it’s debut album also recorded at Worlds End Studios in 2016, and is recording it’s follow up EP expected in July at the same studio.
“The writing for ‘Libations of Omnipotence’ was an extended process, with some of material coming from as far back as 2015. Parts and structures were molded and modified up until the last minute, until we reached a point where we were all satisfied with the final concept behind each track.” ~ Cornelius Potgieter (bass guitar, Nebula Disrupt)
This twenty-minute needle-time package consists of an atmospheric intro following by four monstrous tracks titled as follows:
1. ‘Mors Orbis MMXII’
3. ‘Heinous Acts of Devotion’
4. ‘Kingdoms of Flesh’
5. ‘Hiraeth Exile’
The EP features artwork and design by Davy Oblivion and the band’s own guitarist Stephan Koegelenberg, and follows only one other Nebula Disrupt release; a self-titled debut EP from 2015.
Libations of Omnipotence launches officially with a live performance by Nebula Disrupt tonight at ROAR, and with the first hard copies reaching hands of fans at the show. The digital release will follow tomorrow morning via the recently created Nebula Disrupt bandcamp page. Support bands include The Fallen Prophets, Nethercyst, and Holo, with a bargain entrance fee of only R30 or a combo deal for a steal at R150 which bundles entry, a Libations of Omnipotence CD, and a Nebula Disrupt T-shirt.
