At the Announcement is the grand culmination of the classic COMMUNION archetype firmly established during the EP/demo era. Here, you shall find their WITCHING METAL in its rawest and wildest state, rearranging their unapologetic influences - Venom, Sodom, Sarcofago, Samael, Slayer, Mayhem, Treblinka, Agressor (France), Pentagram (Chile), Mortem (Perú) - into a swirling, cacophonous cauldron that sounds quite like none of them but only as COMMUNION. All the stink of the dungeon, all the sulfur of the ritual lair, all the moss and mildew of realms long forgotten, the diabolism and debauchery and decadence of ancient devil worship: they are all laid bare across At the Announcement. Within its quick-hitting runtime of 28 minutes, COMMUNION explode with a fury like no other, bewitched into being and utterly possessed by each of these 11 conjurings. And yet, for however overwhelming all this fury may get, ghastly and gibbering and forever in thrall, there's an acutely clear-headed vision at play At the Announcement; COMMUNION are certainly no strangers to the studio nor the stage, where their performances in legendary regard.
Before The Communion, you must stand At the Announcement - attack with spell with COMMUNION!
