“Entheogenesis” is the highly anticipated follow up to Swine Overlord’s debut album “Parables of Umbral Transcendence”. The brutal death metal duo who dared to create their own blend of American slam with a slight progressive touch, has returned without any signs of changing paths. With "Entheogenesis," the band goes one step further by formulating their own fresh brand of progressive death metal, and taking their writing to another level. Swine Overlord has crafted a layered concept album which offers a unique look at the development of the human psyche through the lens of western religion and eastern spirituality. This epic story is told over a soundtrack filled with their trademark slams, ominous riffing, as well as mind-bending soundscapes and enough twists and turns to keep fans eager to hear what's coming next.
Featuring album art by renown Chinese artist Yang Guang (Equilibrium, Putridity, Inanimate Existence), “Entheogenesis” was recorded at SO HQ and was mixed and mastered by Andrew Matzenger. The album also includes special guest appearance by Tim Bee (Paroxysmal Butchering) and Jord James (Disentomb).
