Italian deathpunk band HIEROPHANT have revealed new details, artwork, and the first new track from their forthcoming album. The album, titled ‘Mass Grave’, will be their first with Season of Mist, and will be released worldwide on November 4. Pre-orders for ‘Mass Grave’ are available at the Season of Mist E-Shop.
HIEROPHANT are streaming the ferocious title track from ‘Mass Grave’ now, at Lambgoat.com.
Regarding the new track, the band comments, “This song expresses the path we took in the best way. It represents a new chapter for the band. The world is falling apart day by day and we’re all part of this enormous and disgusting mass grave.”
‘Mass Grave’ was recorded at The Pit Recording Studio (NAILS, TWITCHING TONGUES, DISGRACE, XIBALBA, ACxDC, and more) with Taylor Young of NAILS. ‘Mass Grave’ features artwork from Paolo Girardi ( POWER TRIP, BLACK BREATH, INQUISITION).
Regarding the new album, Young adds,
“I was lucky enough to mix Hierophant’s previous album, “Peste”, and I couldn’t be more excited to be able to take it to the next level and help them create a monstrous album. This will be one of the heaviest and most aggressive productions I have created thus far.”
The artwork and track list for ‘Mass Grave’ can be seen below:
1. Hymn of Perdition
2 Execution of Mankind
3 Forever Crucified
4. Mass Grave
6. In Decay
7. Sentenced to Death

Established in 2010 in Italy, HIEROPHANT (feat. former members of THE SECRET) have since cut their teeth in the underground grind and hardcore scenes through the release of three well-received full lengths and several tours across Europe. The band’s aggressive take on extreme hardcore and metal amalgamates massive sonic impact with tinges of sludge, death and black metal, and a visceral punk attitude.
