Apologies for the downtime that started around the end of September, everything should be up and running the same as it was before!
We are still in the process of writing and recording more releases for Manalyth and I have been working on a new set of mixes outside of Manalyth to be finished and released in the near future! Be sure to visit back soon for the next update, and a big thank you to everyone who continues to blast our jams for their support!!
With the ongoing writing of new songs and improving the mix over the past year we wanted to showcase a bit of that huge and crushing atmosphere to expect our next big releases to be sounding like! The lyric video and audio stream have been reuploaded to YouTube and all streaming services will now be blasting the defined and explosive new mix! We hope everyone digs the new sound, looking forward to our next releases!
Check out these latest tracks from Zayvius! He has been putting a lot of work in to these songs and delivering absolutely crushing and dynamic performances that I feel give his music an unique and immersive atmosphere to take the listener for a ride! “What Is Peace? (feat. Undead Papi)” and “I Dream of Great Terrible Things and They Make Me Smile” (mixed and mastered here by Brodee @ManaMix Audio) are his latest releases and he was featured recently on “Ov Tenebris” by @CHXEU.
Working on the mix for “What Is Peace?” was more on the simple side compared to his other releases, taking a more minimalistic approach to the effects and focusing on the expressive deliveries from both Zayvius and Undead Papi while still maintaining an eerie decay in the background to glue the atmosphere into the world they are painting through the lyrics. “What Is Peace” was just released on July 13, check it out below or listen anywhere on your favorite streaming platform!
Released recently before that on June29 was the collaboration on “Ov Tenebris” from CHXEU featuring Zayvius, an extremely dense and pumping track full of thick bass and huge vocals throughout to keep the listener on their toes and hooked for more! The producer Aragoth did a great job creating the apocalypse of distortion and screams to round this release out for anyone to jam out to, available to stream below or on your favorite streaming platforms!
To round out these updates of releases we have “I Dream of Great Terrible Things and They Make Me Smile,” a solo track from Zayvius from earlier this year on February 24. Working on this mix was a tremendous amount of fun to get the different details of vocal layers and fx just right and work through all the layers of the beat from Aragoth to bring the song to it’s final sound, as well as working in that cinematic bit to the intro! Check out the Official Lyric Video below or stream it anywhere on your favorite streaming platform!
More music on the way from both Zxyvixs and Manalyth, be sure to check back here and our social medias for updates on progress and releases! If you like what you hear and would like to inquire about having your own music mixed and mastered take a look here to read more and reach out to me to get things started! Thank y’all for taking a listen, we hope you enjoy the music!
Just released on June 20 2023, this four song EP is full of speed, crushing heaviness, dense ambience, huge impacts and a great variety of influences from different genres that I feel Lich Priest was able to blend together seamlessly and create a unique sound apart from a lot of the more extreme metal that’s around these days. Each song has its own defining characteristics and fit together as a coherent soundscape despite those variations that keep them separated, and after working through them and listening to what is going on in these songs I think this short collection can make anyone a fan of what’s to come in the future from Lich Priest!
The mixing process itself over the past few weeks was a blast as well! Balancing the multitude of elements included in these songs was honestly a lot of fun, and working remotely together to make adjustments and get live feedback was an invaluable aid that I think got the end result sounding just right! Get ready for some chunky riffs, thick bass, and an intense roller coaster of composition with the Tomb World EP and be on the lookout for the next release from Lich Priest!

After almost 3 years since the initial release of “It Lives,” we are excited to present our debut release of “Blood Moon EP” to everyone today! We would like to give special thanks to Christopher Beattie for his master-crafted guitar solos on “It Lives” and “The Light,” to Christina Rotondo for her powerful guest vocal performance on “Eyes,” and to Dystopia Arts for the beautiful and captivating artowrk!! There are a total of 5 tracks on the EP totaling ~40min of heavy riffs, intricate leads, and some of the most brutal vocals around!! We appreciate the continued and growing support for the band and our music and we hope everyone enjoys our debut EP!! If you do, don’t be afraid to leave a comment or send a message, and be sure to spread it around to anyone who likes some long songs and progressive death metal!!
So in simple explanation, we have just a few characters: the Moon Spirit, the Host, and the Cult. The moon spirit is what lives in “It Lives,” as the Cult celebrates the discovery of the Spirit, but also do not know that the Spirit has ulterior motives in its plan to become one with the Earth again. The Moon Spirit uses its light as a way to influence and control the Cult followers so they can enact its plans on Earth. Its first task was to procure a Host body to be transferred into, which is the subject of “Eyes,” being about the many watching eyes of the Cult and Moon Spirit’s influence on the Host until they finally capture her. “The Light” is a switch-up that acts as an instrumental reminiscence that plays on the longing and sad distance between the Moon Spirit and the Earth, which then breaks into the contrasting aggressive “Disgust,” throwing us right back into the present of the Host being secured and a ritual commencing to introduce the Moon Spirit into the Host body, allowing it to walk the Earth and carry out its secret plans. “The Destroyer” is the betrayal of all of the Cult followers by the now-bodied Moon Spirit, where it uses its powers to destroy, torture, and eradicate humans, seeing them as a disease that infects the Earth which was so precious to the Moon Spirit, leaving the listener off at a cliffhanger point of absolute devastation.
