Minneapolis duo INEXORUM present “Moonlit Navigation” to be released on June 26, 2020 via Gilead Media.
Originally founded as a solo outlet by Carl Skildum (Threadbare, Antiverse, Obsequiae live lineup), INEXORUM is joined by Matthew Kirkwold (RIAA certified producer, also of Antiverse and Obsequiae live lineup) and serves as an outlet for Skildum’s personal compositions that felt connected through similar energies and inspirations all their own.
Although heavily inspired by the sound and tone of those early genres, the lyrical content behind INEXORUM comes from a far more secular and personal place. Themes of struggle and grief carry the torch throughout the album’s duration, focusing far more on the common thread of our ability to navigate the trials throughout our lives and become stronger through that suffering: to heal.
“Moonlit Navigation” is a document of triumph that travels upon a path paved with dense, melodic riffs and pummeling rhythm. Skildum’s powerful vocals, melodic compositions, and intense lyrics coupled with Kirkwold’s masterful production prove to be a combination of considerable force.
“Moonlit Navigation” will be released on CD, LP and Digital platforms by Gilead Media on June 26th, 2020 and features beautifully stunning new artwork by Brooks Wilson (Crypt Sermon).
