More Info:

The release which sanctioned Apostasy's definitive return and majestic transformation into an imposing dark speed metal beast. After having briefly existed in the late 80s and early 90s as a pioneering thrash band in Chile's early extreme metal scene, Apostasy returned in 2018 after thirty years of silence as a changed entity, almost as if it's 30 years of dormancy had been lulled and nurtured by mysterious dark forces. While the 2018 comeback LP "The Sign of Darkness" marked Apostasy's return from a dark past to even more malevolent ways, it is 2020's "The Unknown Path" EP, with it's heightened production and daring songwriting, which consecrated the legendary Chilean thrash legion as an unstoppable force of darkness. Across the EP's 10+ minutes of pitch-black weaponized thrash domination Apostasy set the tone for their future reign and re-evoke the wrath and brilliance of early Slayer and Sepultura, Sodom and Destruction, mutating that glorious past of thrash metal's darkest hour through the ominous and evil aura of black metal and reinterpreting it through an occult and esoteric form of prog-derived songwriting to reveal themselves as an absolute beast of thrash metal's darkest fringe.
