INNER SANCTUM Announce New Album "The Great Odd Ones"; Release Intense First Single "Abgott Death Kult"!

Freiburg, Germany-based Death Metallers INNER SANCTUM have announced the release of the band's fourth album "The Great Odd Ones", which will be out on March 22nd. This concept album delves into the eerie realm of sea gods known as "The Great Odd Ones", weaving a narrative that explores their terrifying influence on our world.

Since their formation in 2004, INNER SANCTUM has been forging a unique path in the Death Metal scene. Combining dynamic death riffs with heavy and heroic parts, the band has created a characteristic and individual sound and with three independently released full-length albums to date and two decades of live experience, INNER SANCTUM has established themselves as a force to be reckoned with.

The upcoming output "The Great Odd Ones" pushes the boundaries of the band's sound, taking a turn towards a more death metal and heavy focus while skillfully retaining the distinctive roots that define their music. Drawing inspiration from non-related personal experiences encountered by the band members and delving into the realms of Lovecraftian horror fiction, this album immerses listeners in a nautical, dark, and cryptic theme.

The album's first single "Abgott Death Kult" showcases the band's relentless energy and growth as musicians. With its visceral intensity and haunting melodies, the single sets the stage for the captivating journey that awaits the listener in "The Great Odd Ones". Furthermore, the brand new track is accompanied by a music video, which you can watch BELOW!

INNER SANCTUM comments: "After 8 long years, we couldn't be happier to finally present our newest creation, especially because “Abgott Death Kult” is such a personal and special song for us. Not only does it push the limits of the INNER SANCTUM sound to the extreme, but it is also a prime example of how our personal and private experiences can be interpreted creatively to fit the lore we created for "The Great Odd Ones". The song’s origins were rather experimental in nature, so it came as a surprise, even to us, how it grew to become the flagship of our new musical path. The subtle integration of real-life incidents into a somewhat obscure lyrical theme surely played its part in that. We hope you will enjoy the song as much as we do."
