MERRIMACK premiere first song and reveal details of new album


MERRIMACK are now revealing the first sinister song taken from their forthcoming fifth full-length, which bears the title 'Omegaphilia' and will be released on June 9th.

The pitch-black track "Apophatic Weaponry" is exclusively streaming via Metalitalia

MERRIMACK comment: "For this song, as on the whole album, we wanted to come back to something more rooted in the 90's. With a less complex structure, and a sound not as modern and claustrophobic as on our latest albums, 'Apophatic Weaponry' still has our characteristic moody atmosphere with some crawling mid-tempos riffs. This is especially noticeable on the second half of the track. Our lyrics are dealing with the special connection between beings and their faith, even though it is constructed on a void trying to fill in another vacant space of nothingness. The divine cannot be observed, demonstrated, except by its consequences. In the end, this is the definition of faith as opposed to reason. This concept of negative theology is a mystical approach towards the divine that attempts to describe it through the impossibility of describing it. Eckhart. Jacob Böhme and most of the German mystics tried to increase their faith with such notions."

MERRIMACK are furthermore unveiling the cover art by Dehn Sora and track-list of 'Omegaphilia', which can both be viewed below.
