London purveyors of cathartic existential outrage DAMIM (feat. Nathanael Underwood, ex-Akercocke) have joined forces with Apocalyptic Witchcraft Recordings to unleash their new album, entitled “A Fine Game Of Nil”, later this year.

The forthcoming album was mixed by Neil Kernon (Nile, Cannibal Corpse, Judas Priest, Nevermore etc.), features guest appearances by Ilia of Indesinence/Binah/Necromaniac & Louis Coates of Agonyst and will see a worldwide digital, vinyl & CD release via Apocalyptic Witchcraft Recordings and Czar Of Crickets Productions on 28th June 2019.

The band comments:
“We are privileged to be able to announce that we will be releasing "A Fine Game Of Nil" through Apocalyptic Witchcraft Recordings, joining the ranks of the likes of The Infernal Sea, Skaldic Curse, The Antichrist Imperium and From The Bogs Of Aughiska on their impressive roster and look forward to be working with such a focussed, talented, responsive & exceptionally professional label.”

Check out a playthrough of new song “Beyond The Call Of Emptiness” for a taste of things to come.

"I could do a write-up like that for each of the eight songs on this record, simply because we are dealing with an album that has no fillers and only killers. The heavy sound of Unhold dances, darts, weaves and distorts, constantly showing interesting plot twists, making this album rank high in creativity. But make no mistake, there is no experimentation here just for the heck of it. No. Every piece of every song is excellently well thought out and sounds both flowing and solid. Occasionally Amenra-like scenes unfold before your eyes...ears! But Unhold treads very different pathways, making this comparison superficial at best. The brief addition of keyboards and piano makes sure the sound is complete. I am very much impressed with everything that is going on on 'Here Is The Blood'." 91/100
