Track Premiere: Filtheater – ‘Unwelcome Illuminated Curiosity’

After a series of EPs and a split, US death metallers Filtheater will finally release their debut full length, awesomely titled Blight of Sempiternal Putrefaction. Spanish label Memento Mori will release the album on April 22nd, and because it is simply Memento Mori’s nature to work with the sickest, deepest dwelling bands, details on Filtheater are somewhat murky. However the leader of Filtheater is total maniac Jared “K.J.” Moran, and he is joined on Blight of Sempiternal Putrefaction by three other musicians only known by their initials. Blight of Sempiternal Putrefaction promises to be a record worth hearing going by today’s track premiere. “Unwelcome Illuminated Curiosity” slithers forth from obscurity, slowly at first, but it’s not long before we begin to hear what a horrific beast of a song Filtheater have wrought.

“When writing this song, I wanted to convey within how the lyrics portray an unknown entity or presence,” says K.J. “How it would invoke itself in this realm and then the aftermath thereof until it relinquishes itself back to the barriers Beyond. Musically, I just wanted it to fucking CRUSH.”
