Ensnared premiere viciously powerful track from "Inimicus Generis Humani"

Ensnared premiered today on Decibel Magazine a new track from their upcoming full-length "Inimicus Generis Humani", out on Invictus Productions and on Dark Descent Records on February 14th.
The song is titled “The Throne of Transformation”, and right from the beginning it strikes deeply, deploying a powerful, almost doom-driven intro and then shows its vicious twists and turns in a stellar maelstrom of black-infused, piercing death metal swirl.
Like a sinful abomination, Ensnared's sound has undeniably grown in complexity and it builds an oppressive, heavy atmosphere without ever losing its massive death metal grip.
Guitarist and vocalist H.K's comment about the track on Decibel Magazine also faces us with this ominous and interesting question: "To fall victim to the one on the Throne of Transformation, the enemy of humankind, is a most dire malediction, yet how does it come that humans in different remote parts of the world worship its incarnations in misshapen form?”

Differently from what stated on Decibel magazine, "Inimicus Generis Humani" has been recorded by the Ensnared's duo H.K and J.K only, with the addition of leads by C.S. (of Graveyard, Sheidim).

You can stream the new track "The Throne of Transformation" here below; Ensnared's upcoming album "Inimicus Generis Humani" can be pre-ordered on Invictus Productions and Dark Descent Records: see all the available versions on this previous post.
