Laurentian Black Metal band Mavradoxa returns with their second album “Lethean Lament” - an introspective and majestic album that is expansive, atmospheric, and melancholic. Releasing “Sojourners” last September, Mavradoxa’s two members Nival and Lux have quickly returned to Rotten Metal Recording Studio to record their follow-up “Lethean Lament.” The new album is perfect for dreary and rain-soaked days during solitary walks, or in any moment of introspection. Long progressive songs that flow with purpose where the atmosphere dictates and paints vivid stories in its movement and direction, the entire album encapsulates a whirlwind of emotion from raw carnal aggression, nature reverence, despair, longing, and bliss. “Lethean Lament” is honest genuine atmospheric Black Metal that carries on the tradition of bands like Agalloch, Alda, Waldgeflüster, Falls of Rauros, and Obsidian Tongue.
Recorded in the spring of 2017, this album is set for release on June 22 through Hypnotic Dirge in a 4 panel digipack with a booklet. Andy McGirr (Hubris, Ferus Din) contributed violins on the tracks “Cicadan” and “Across the Nival Grove” and Mark Welden (Blurring, ex-Warblade) added guest vocals to “Crimson Waves of Autumnal Flame”.
"Lethean Lament is a remarkable listen, one that should help soothe the ache of those still mourning the departure of Agalloch and satisfy the more patient fans of the genre, along with a few reptile-brained headbangers, too."

" Each song is a musical journey through a wondrous landscape that the band creates with their lyrics and music. You really have to take your time to listen to this one to appreciate it but when you do, it will become a part of you, refusing to let you go from its beautifully complex clutches. This album will definitely show up on year end lists throughout the heavy metal world."
"The music here connects to something primal and lesser-seen in music. It transports back to the early days of black metal’s exploration, while still managing to sound both contemporary and essentially timeless. Lethean Lament is a huge achievement, and I can’t recommend it highly enough."
"I suspect I'll very likely put this band in heavy rotation alongside my favorites from Falls of Rauros and Alcest, and that's pretty high praise from me. "
