Swedish black/death/goth troupe Tribulation have announced a new EP, Hamartia, for April release via Century Media. The EP features the already-released title track, a cover of Blue Öyster Cult’s “Vengeance (The Pact)” and two new songs, “Axis Mundi” and “Hemoclysm.” You can hear “Axis Mundi” today as part of the EP’s announcement.
“Axis Mundi” is the first song written by new Tribulation guitarist Joseph Tholl, who previously played with Enforcer. The band issued the following statement:
“‘Axis Mundi’ sees Tribulation entering The Machine Age through the lens of dystopian fiction in a journey to the centre of the world, and beyond. Being the first composition by Joseph Tholl (guitars), it offers the listener and the viewer a new set of flavours and hues to the palate, and from the palette that constitutes the egregore that is Tribulation. A new year calls for a fresh start, so please consider making this a part of the soundtrack to yours.”
The new tune definitely captures the Tribulation sound and fuses their gothic leanings with the progressive black/death sound that the band became known for.
