As Selfmadegod Records prepares to release Degrees Of Isolation – the impending fourth album from Polish death crew BANISHER – the label this week unveils the new single, “Apotheosis.”
Recorded by BANISHER’s powerful lineup including members and ex-members of Decapitated, Belphegor, Vital Remains, Hate, Redemptor, and Shodan, Degrees Of Isolation delivers eight new songs totaling forty minutes of pulverization. The album was recorded at Invent-Sound Studio in Bydgoszcz, Poland and the cover art created by Łukasz Jaszak.
The new “Apotheosis” video clip was made by Rafał “Kvass” Kwaśny. The band offers with its release, “’Apotheosis’ was the first song that was written on Degrees Of Isolation. It’s a hate-mockery hymn against all hypocrites who are pretending to be someone else that they are in real life. This is the only song on Degrees Of Isolation that sticks out from the concept of the album. This is a very raw, furious song, with a motoric verse, catchy refrain, savage blast beat coda, and crushing breakdown at the end. This is also the shortest song on the album, sort of a ‘shot in the face.’ What is also worth mentioning, the opening riff from the verse was written ‘out of the head’ on a sheet of paper during incarceration and adapted on the instrument later on after being released from custody.”
