Outre – Ghost Chants (Godz ov War / Third Eye Temple / Essential Purification)
Outre (or their labels) haven’t yet made this thing available in full on Bandcamp, and it doesn’t appear to be on U.S. Spotify either. We’ve got a promo, so we can discuss the whole thing, but you’ll have to make do with the third track from the album, “Chant 3 – The Fall” for now.

Coming at your guys later than usual this fine Sunday. Why? Because I finally rolled back into town from NYC and have consumed enough beers to start working again. I hope you guys have had a good week… I know it’s been a busy one for us. Let’s take a closer look, shall we?
I know this was just uploaded, but if you haven’t checked out Episode 44 of the Horns Up Podast, it’s time to do so. This week, the guys come to you from NYC (yes, both of them) and rant about Megadeth, some new releases, and the frustrations behind the Inception button. Because beer.
Well, that will just about wrap up another week. Stay tuned for our thoughts on this past weekend’s Yob/Enslaved concert. I know there was no video review this week, but you’ll get our thoughts soon enough. Until then, catch you guys tomorrow.
In late January, Polish black metal band Outre released “Chant 3 – The Fall”—a terrific, five-minute glimpse at their upcoming full-length, Ghost Chants. [Check out our review here] The song was impressive not just for its effortless melding of a wide range of styles, but also for the fact that the band had parted with vocalist Andrzej Nowak only a month prior and started recording anew with versatile guest vocalist Stawrogin. We’ll save the hyperbole for our formal review, but suffice it to say, it was an inspired substitution that paid dividends all throughout the album.
Ahead of Ghost Chants’ formal release next month, we put forth some questions to Outre guitarist and founder Damian Igielski on that last-minute swap, as well as some of the other key factors in the album’s development. Here’s what he had to say:
Well, this certainly was a nice break in the action at the day job. (Using the term “action” loosely, of course.)
In any case, ahead of their forthcoming full-length debut, Ghost Chants, Kraków, Poland-based blackened deathsters Outre released a new song from the album for streaming earlier this week. And was this thing ever captivating. Check out the terrific “Chant 3 – The Fall” after the jump.
