“‘Loathed Be Thy Name’ was inspired by Cthulhu Mythos and written from the perspective of a disciple praying to the Dread Lord. H.P. Lovecraft has always been a huge inspiration for me. His writing seems to have a way of expanding your consciousness and taking you somewhere new. Absolute genius.” – Bestialord
We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Bestialord’s new song “Loathed Be Thy Name” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming debut album Law of the Burning, which is scheduled to be released Symbol of Domination (a sub-label of Satanath Records) and Cimmerian Shade Recordings (US) on January 1, 2018.
Bestialord was formed in Wichita, Kansas by Mark Anderson (Manilla Road, Sanctus Infernum) and Chris Johnson (Sanctus Infernum) in October 2016. Rob Harris was soon added on bass and after several months of writing the band entered Red Cat Recording Studio in early 2017, ultimately emerging with their debut album Law of the Burning. Their style of occult horror doom is inspired by a blend of influences including Black Sabbath, Celtic Frost, Candlemass, Morbid Angel, Cathedral, and Mercyful Fate just to name a few.
Law of the Burning offers nine menacing tracks shrouded in darkness and Lovecraftian atmosphere. Bluesy solos and thick dreadful riff structures authenticate its doom foundation, whereas the spirited vocal, incorporating the ghoulish energy of David Vincent and ancient caveman like tone of Lee Dorrian at the same time, acts as the harbinger of ghastly death metal atmosphere.
