AORTES (ex-Autism) dark and chaotic post-metal band from Vilnius, Lithuania are proud to be back with a brand new album, titled, Devouring Gloom. After four years, a lineup change and pandemic woes occurred. 

AORTES says,

“We are really excited to finally put out a new album. It has been quite a rough time for the band: the lineup has changed which led to the change of the sound of the band, which led to the change of the band name completely. The pandemic took over the world and put all of our plans in slow motion. At times it felt like it had been one step forward and two steps back, so it took us almost four years to make Devouring Gloom”. But it is finally finished and it seems that with this release we have finally managed to properly channel our creative vision. This darker, more dissonant and chaotic sound felt like a natural evolution of AORTES.

The central themes of the album deal with the struggle of the overwhelming feeling of despair, hopelessness, loneliness - or as we thought of it - a gloom that surrounds and devours you. Sometimes you find the strength to fight it off, other times you admit defeat. But there is always hope.”

Devouring Gloom is available on limited edition LP and digital. Orders are available now via AORTES Bandcamp.
