Autokrator, French harrowing extreme duo’s new LP ‘Persecution’ comes November via Krucyator Productions

French formidable force Autokrator announces the details of the 4th full-length, Persecution, slated for release on 05 November via Krucyator Productions on different formats: CD, Vinyl, and digital. The album serves as a distressing narrative of the persecution of Christians during the Roman Empire.
As the first taste of the album, Autokrator presents the track, “The Great Persecution.” The appalling doomy death/black duo teamed up with Decibel Magazine for the premiere of the single.

With three lauded albums, Autokrator has already become a fearsome name in the underground. Notorious for their unconventional, harrowing, and hazardous sonic power, the French duo has constantly been extending the limits of extreme music, interspersing death metal with pulverizing doom, earsplitting noise, terrifying black metal, or cadaverous dark experimentation.
On the impending album, Persecution, Autokrator continues recreating the violent episodes from the past. Once again, using historical incidents as the album theme, the band recounts the persecution of Christians during the ancient Roman Empire — under the reigns of Marcus Aurelius, Diocletian, Domitian, and Trajan. Make no mistake, the record has nothing to do with glorifying the barbarity; it rather conjures up the cruel and dreadful sufferings of the victims — be it decapitation, execution, lapidation, damnatio ad bestias, dislocation, imprisonment, or banishment.
A trial fraught with danger, the album Persecution sees Autokrator entering into a new trajectory of death/black metal, shrouded by menacing, grotesque atmosphere. Musically, the suffocating 6-track record is the most intense and gnarliest offering by the duo thus far.
Kevin Paradis (Benighted, Mithridatic), who played drums on the previous record, again joined forces with Autokrator to lend his vicious, torrential blasts.
