With their second album Veneration, VIRCOLAC are balancing on a razor's edge... confidently and with combat boots... creating their best release to date. The album encompasses the whole world of Death Metal, but it also adds another world, a much darker one. The Wolves have managed to create an album full of anger and tragedy. An album full of doom and conviction and they spit it out into a world that is obviously choking on generic, soulless and technically „perfect" standard „Death Metal" releases. You can hardly write and play Death Metal in a more personal and emotional way. Although the album does not reveal it's entirety on first contact, it will be generous to those who fully engage in it. Veneration meanders between choleric outbursts and epic arrangements with an eerie, deeply funereal atmosphere that apparently only Irish bands are capable of writing. Veneration is bloody, it is epic and it is timeless. It combines tradition and Zeitgeist and consciously rejects everything that is polished, fashionable or blatant. The result: VIRCOLACīs black is darker and their fire is brighter. And this is what you can feel when it creeps under your Skin.
