Veteran French black metal band MERRIMACK are streaming their new album, ‘Omegaphilia’. The album, an extreme, relentless take on pitch-black metal, is streaming now at Metal Injection.
Regarding the new album, MERRIMACK comment: “The time has come to reveal ‘Omegaphilia’ in its entirety. To give credit where it is due, our opening track features Frater Stephane from NKRT during its ritualistic introduction, while an amateur choral can be heard on the closing song, which was open-minded enough to participate on such an infamous project. We hope that you’ll like this album as much as we do!“
MERRIMACK’s new album ‘Omegaphilia’ releases worldwide on June 9. ‘Omegaphilia’ is available for pre-order across multiple CD and LP formats at the Season of Mist E-Shop.

MERRIMACK were founded by guitarist Perversifier in 1994 with a clear vision to keep the black metal flame burning as an act of aesthetic terrorism – adamantly based in the underground as opposed to any attempts to co-opt or commercialize.
With a number of demo recordings under their belt in the mid 90’s, the French gained recognition and respect in the scene for being true to their words. Following the release of 3 well-received full-lengths, the Parisians remained dedicated to their roots firmly lodged in dirty, grime, and fanatical passion. The band’s daft combination of harsh soundscapes with epic songwriting appealed to critics and fans alike, allowing the band to embark on their celebrated first US-tour with MARDUK and NACHTMYSTIUM in 2009.
Following the recording of last album, (‘The Acausal Mass’, 2012) with the legendary Necromorbus Studio (WATAIN, DESTRÖYER 666), MERRIMACK embarked on a European tour with Norwegian genre icons MAYHEM and accepted invitations to prestigious festivals such as Hellfest in their native France, Germany’s Party-San Open Air and Summer Breeze and Montreal’s Messe des Morts in Canada.
