Brotthogg are back with their third full-length album, Epicinium, following the critically acclaimed “Echoes of the Past” (2019) and “The Die is Cast” (2020). With this new album Brotthogg again presents a dynamic display of deathly blackened and thrashing extremity filled with dark and gloomy melodies.
“As always we try to provide a personal approach towards the fine attributes extreme metal has to offer. Our focus is to create something brutal and aggressive, but also melodic and progressive, all interspersed with the freezing cold layers of black metal. Whether you call it back metal, death metal or even thrash metal, we hope we have created an intriguing release well worth exploring”.
