about

Danish extreme metal veterans STRYCHNOS reveal their long-awaited debut ‘A Mother’s Curse’ on Colorado Springs’ Dark Descent Records.

Formed in 1997 by Martin Leth Andersen (also of Undergang fame), STRYCHNOS might just be the Danish underground’s best kept secret. ‘A Mother’s Curse’ is the product of a craft perfected over 25-years of toil, a true celebration of extreme metal mastery that surpasses all genre limitations.

“We are proud to finally present eight tracks of pitch-black death metal tragedy as it was always intended to be: Dark, atmospheric, brutal, and tragic!” exclaims Andersen.

The intricately sculpted compositions shift seamlessly between moods of terror, hope, and tragedy, building a momentous atmosphere rarely achieved in this day and age. Add to this the inventive riffing and bone-shattering vocals of the highest order and the result is ‘A Mother’s Curse’.

The truly complete work is wrapped in stunning cover by the inimitable Daniel Corcuera: “The chilling motif is based on Danish sculptor Niels Hansen Jacobsen’s statue ‘Death and the Mother’ from 1892, depicting a young woman in the moment of ultimate tragedy. Jacobsen was inspired by the ending of ‘The tale of a Mother’, a story written in 1847 by famous author Hans Christian Andersen: “And Death walked with her child into the unknown land.”
