Local black metal outfit Anicon have released their new album Exegesses, and if you're a fan of this kind of thing, it's definitely worth seeking out. They just shared a video for the song "The World As Will," a scary, nature-is-Satan's-church type of clip for the classically Norwegian-style black metal of the song. The album as a whole is a decidedly low-frills, riff-forward approach to a genre that often seems to get mired in atmospherics at the expense of songwriting. Check out the video and listen to the whole album below.

Anicon also have an Acheron-presented (RIP) NYC album release show coming up with fellow local kvltists Belus. That goes down on July 30 at Union Pool, and tickets for that are on sale now. Other than that Anicon have a show coming up in Washington with Bell Witch, and that's it for now.

All dates listed, along with a stream of Exegesses and the video for "The World As Will," below.
