Fearless voyagers into the unknown and the far reaches of symphonic black metal, north east England’s Necronautical are releasing their second opus The Endurance At Night through resurrected cult label Cacophonous Records on July 15 – and we have an exclusive stream in all its windblown, fist-raising resplendence.

Abandoning caution to all four winds and a typhoon to boot, The Endurance At Night takes on themes of the afterlife, the perils of imperialism and the art of self-mastery with a sweeping, heart-in-mouth momentum, where virtuoso musicianship, epic dynamics and an insane level of blast mastery threaten to shake the very foundations of rationality itself in search of something glorious beyond.

“It is with a great sense of pride and accomplishment that we are able to present our new album The Endurance At Night to you a week before its release via the great people at Metal Hammer,” says frontman Naut. “This is our most accomplished realisation of the Necronautical vision to date, expressed from the blackest depths of our hearts. Journey with us through the limitless emptiness of the omniverse, experience its horrific psychedelic revelations and know your true worth by enduring these seven visions of death and the underworld. Presented with our sincerest gratitude to both Metal Hammer and Cacophonous Records, withstand The Endurance at Night!”

It’s our humble opinion that Necronautical’s presence on the metal scene is going to become as huge as their music itself, so stoke your furnace, set your compass to glory and get on deck to prepare yourself for the orgiastic level of enlightenment that is The Endurance At Night below!
