On August 18th, Horrendous will release Ontological Mysterium —the band's fifth and and well anticipated full-length. Like its predecessors, Ontological Mysterium allows its expansive musicianship to unfold with each passing minute and lead single/title track whets the appetite with an electrifying display that spearheads this hard-hitting effort.

Guitarist/vocalist Matthew Knox comments:

"The album is our love letter to the bombastic spirit of heavy metal from the '80s and early '90s. 'Ontological Mysterium' is an allegorical tale of creation, the formation of organic life, and the inadvertently and ironically destructive fate of unbound growth and uncontrollable reproduction. It represents the wild voracity of youth and inevitable transition into the gradual decay of aging in its various forms, fulfilling the unbroken circle of a biological existence".

Stream Ontological Mysterium below and pre-order the record now.
