You can check out the album opener over here. Band founder Antti Klemi commented on the album as follows: “Musically, this album sprung from an idea of totally bleak and monotonous Industrial / Black Metal hybrid, driven by simple, repetitive drumbeats and cold synth / guitar riffs. With time, these songs took many twists and turns, layers were laden one after another, and the labyrinth grew more complex and serpentine. So, “The Third Level Of Decay” is play between two elements – blunt, primitive, and ‘physical’ core and spectral, unconscious, and ‘spiritual’ details. And that third level, death of deaths, humming over this all.” ABSOLUTE KEY will be making its live debut at this year’s Invicta Requiem Mass festival.
