Heavy Metal Rockers Crypt Sermon Share New Single “Glimmers in the Underworld”

Their new LP The Stygian Rose is out June 14th

Dark heavy metallers Crypt Sermon have returned with the premiere of their upcoming album’s opening track “Glimmers in the Underworld“—  a song that epitomizes the band’s musical and conceptual prowess. 

Vocalist Brooks Wilson comments, “‘Glimmers in the Underworld’ gives both a broad overview of the musical palette contained in the album beyond, while also introducing the lengths to which our unnamed protagonist will go in order to find spiritual fulfillment as they engage in a fictionalized Abremelin ritual.”

They’ve also recently unveiled details for their bewitching new album, The Stygian Rose, out June 14 on Dark Descent.

The Stygian Rose follows a character inspired by Paschal Beverly Randolf, an early American spiritualist and sex magician. In The Stygian Rose, the unnamed character seeks to reconnect with his now maybe dead, definitely lost (though intentionally left vague) idealized female, embodying the Sophia/Shakti/Persephone divine wisdom/feminine concept. This lost love is believed to be waiting for him, calling for him from ‘the hollow.’ Conceived by Wilson, the protagonist’s harrowing jaunt starts with “Glimmers in the Underworld” and ends naturally with the title track. The story, as unfurled in the lyrics, is directly connected to the album’s artwork and booklet, painstakingly painted and illustrated by Wilson. Clearly, The Stygian Rose and its lyrical and artistic regalia were thought through from the onset.
