CALLIGRAM have shared an official music video for new single “Frantumi In Itinere”, from their forthcoming album, “Position | Momentum”, which is set for release via Prosthetic Records on July 14th. “Frantumi In Itinere” is the second track to be taken from the London, UK based multinational black metal group’s sophomore full-length, with an intense thematic focus on human consciousness and death. CALLIGRAM has also recently announced UK tour dates.
The band comments on the track: “This song is about death and consciousness. The limits of human consciousness is the ‘reach of thought’. As humans we naturally strive for reaching and overcoming the limits which means, in this case, taking consciousness beyond the field of human thought into something greater, vaster and incomprehensible by thought and unreachable by intellect. At the same time this is terrifying because that same limit is what defines us and keeps us alive: the idea of ‘life’ lays within its limits.”
Joy can be found in the most unlikely of places. A listen through CALLIGRAM‘s latest offering may not instantly conjure up feelings of immediate joy, but rest assured – between the blistering howls and blackened riffs, there is much to celebrate.
“Position | Momentum” saw the group decamp to The Parlour Studios in Kettering to record with Russ Russell (NAPALM DEATH, DIMMU BORGIR, AT THE GATES) during the summer of 2022. The follow up to 2020’s The Eye Is The First Circle doesn’t ease up on intensity; if anything, giving the chaos a little more room to breathe has shaped CALLIGRAM into something even more formidable than before.
“Position | Momentum” track listing:
- Sul Dolore
- Frantumi In Itinere
- Per Jamie
