Italian mystical death metal conjurors Hadit return after six years of silence from their grandiose "Introspective Contemplation of the Microcosmus" tape EP (released in 2015 by Caligari Records) with their long awaited debut album "With Joy and Ardour Through the Incommensurable Path", an obfuscating spell of dark cosmological death metal destruction that elevates their occult ritualistic divinations of total aural chaos to their most baneful and visionary zenith yet. Inspired by occult and mystical literature and philosophy coming from works by Crowley and Lovecraft among others ("Hadit" was the name of a mysterious Thelemic deity appearing in Aleister Crowley's The "Book of the Law"), as well as from the darkest and most cryptic passages found in ancient monotheistic doctrines and theology, on "With Joy and Ardour Through the Incommensurable Path" Hadit plumb the darkest depths of abhorrent death metal ritualism to distill its primordial order from chaos and unlock passageways to a higher dimension in which supernatural dark forces and cryptic mystical axioms define inaccessible truths on mankind's true nature and existence. With death metal ritualized and used almost as a rite of passage to a higher order, concepts pertaining to time, cyclicality, fatality, and death as the true engine and motivator for life are thus unearthed through submission to the symbolism of chaos and used to access the higher knowledge and order which comes through it. Sonically annihilating and aesthetically majestic, "With Joy and Ardour Through the Incommensurable Path" is an impenetrable and supernatural death metal hallucination shrouded in mysticism and esotericism that Hadit have skillfully distilled and alchemised from the primeval chaos and pestilence conceptualized by founding forebears of dark death metal and black metal entities like Inquisition, Incantation, Morbid Angel, Immolation, and Archgoat, to ritualize a submission to ancient dark forces where complete chaos and ruin become a form of order, discipline, balance and force to harness a higher level of self, knowledge and truth.
