Qrixkuor - Incantations From the Abyss - Release Information and U.S. Tour Dates.


By Trevor Proctor.

Press Release Information by Nathan Birk.

Qrixkuor was born of flame and baptised in blood in the year MMXI. Their first utterance was the 19-minute demo Consecration of the Temple, containing the track of the same name and "Morte Datores," which was recorded in the West Midlands in mid-MMXIII and released unto the world at their debut live ritual, on April 26th MMXIV. The demo was continually self-repressed in small quantities until new music became the primary focus, eventually selling around 400 copies. 


As work progressed for 2016’s debut MLP Three Devils Dance for Invictus Productions with The Fires of Samhain: Initium festival in Dublin on Halloween 2015 planned as the eventually overly optimistic release date, a rehearsal for the festival was recorded and released at the festival as the Rehearsal 09/15 demo.
Limited to 50 blood-stained copies, the demo showcased a rough version of a new track entitled "The Divine Architect," a cover of Demoncy's seminal "Winter Bliss," along with a re-interpretation of the title track from Consecration of the Temple by way of exhibiting the progression two years' worth of rehearsals and shows since the original demo’s release.


Now, to further the momentum established by the critically acclaimed Three Devils Dance and more so as a timely release for Qrixkuor's impending North American invasion, Invictus Productions collects both long-sold-out demos on one convenient compilation. 
Set for both CD and vinyl release, both formats have been remastered by Vassafor's VK and features layout designed by SeventhBell Artwork.

In the meantime you can listen to Consecration of the Temple below and pre-order Incantations From the Abyss here.
