Philadelphia Black Metallers I AM THE TRIREME Releasing ‘Gnosis: Never Follow the Light’ June 30 on HPGD Productions‏

Philadelphia Black Metallers I AM THE TRIREME will release Gnosis: Never Follow the Light June 30 on Horror Pain Gore Death Productions. New track “Tamerlane (Chapter 1) is now streaming at this location.

Few bands can match the ferocity and sheer brutal combination of melodic death and vile symphonic black metal that I AM THE TRIREME (pronounced “tri’ reem”) has conjured. IATT bring forth a relentless, fast paced, crushing wall of blackened brutality and haunting melodies. Listeners can expect to hear a searing, dark, aggressive blend of brutality and purely sinister blackened metal that is sure to leave them foaming at the mouth.
Gnosis: Never Follow the Light is a poignant Passage through the stages of Enlightenment and Ascension. Each song has its own symbol and is comparable to the metamorphic phases of a Butterfly, or in a more morbid sense the five stages of grief. The album leaves room for the listener to use perception as a tool while reaching a common result. Sonically,Gnosis: Never Follow the Light cannot just be lumped into a generic collective genre, attesting TO I AM THE TRIREME’s struggle to avoid blending into a scene or live line-up. For IATT the album holds the symbol of constant suffocation and deprivation of carrying out a normal life. Indeed, the band has been completely consumed for two years in the creation of this masterpiece.

Conceived in 2008, I AM THE TRIREME quickly began to heave their mass out of the dark abyss and shape themselves into a great leviathan in the world of extreme metal alongside acts such as Rotting Christ, Goatwhore, Suffocation, Exhumed, and literally countless other heavy hitters in the extreme metal community; proving IATT as equals in the genre.

While never claiming to be strictly black metal, IATT hold strong to belief of black metal in it’s purest form – unencumbered and in direct opposition of ALL religious ties and affiliations. In a time where ideals and strong beliefs have shifted into trends and thoughtless practices, leaving the scene littered with hollow shells in the image of our forefathers; I AM THE TRIREME sets a course true to their convictions and shines an unapologetic ghostly light through the fog into the beyond.
