Avichi - The Devil’s Fractal

I don't like announcing forthcoming releases here but the second attack from Avichi seems too promising to be ignored.
Quote from Profound Lore Records :
In what will be seen as one of the more prominent and sinister U.S. black metal albums to surface this year, “The Devil’s Fractal” raises the bar from its successor by not only summoning that ancient black metal aesthetic harnessed by the great classic works of such acts as Mortuary Drape, Rotting Christ, Samael, and Necromantia, but by also offering that forward-thinking, twisted, and progressive black metal aesthetic found in, and forging alongside such luminaries as Deathspell Omega, Leviathan, and Negative Plane.

Masterminded by Andrew Markuszewski (aka Aamonael), who also performs in the bands Lord Mantis and Nachtmystium respectively, and where he essentially handles pretty much all instruments in Avichi (drums are handled by Charlie Fell, also of Lord Mantis and Nachtmystium), with “The Devil’s Fractal” Markuszewski has crafted a modern-day black metal masterpiece, one in which thematically peers into the historical importance and relevance of Lucifer.

To be released July 19th, tracklisting for “The Devil’s Fractal” goes as follows:

1.    Sermon On The Mount

2.    Under Satan’s Sun
3.    Tabernacle Of Perdition
4.    Kaivalya Of The Black Magician
5.    I Am The Adversary
6.    The Devil’s Fractal Part I
7.    The Devil’s Fractal Part II
