“Innerstanding” is the debut full-length album by a mysterious atmospheric black metal project from Cyprus, with the name Tome of the Unreplenished. Sole member Hermes used to play bass guitar with the blackmetallers Necrosadist, but with Tome of the Unreplenished he explores the hidden regions of the soul, abandoning himself and the listener to an emotional roller-coaster of transcendental, cosmic beauty. “Innerstanding” will be released on standard jewel-case edition CD with a full color 8-page booklet complete with lyrics via I, Voidhanger Records on March 30th 2015. It is already available for digital download at their label’s Bandcamp page. The album was mixed at the Temple of Flesh by A. Dictator, mastered at Wormhole Studios by Vladimir Uzelac and produced by Tome of the Unreplenished. Cover painting is by Brian Smith (“By Midnight”, 2010), while art direction and layout is by Francesco Gemelli. In Hermes’ own words “Tome of the Unreplenished is an artistic musical project created as a source of self expression and visualization, combined with a soothing yet dismal form of language and execution. The representation of conceptual philosophy, progression, and elevation through sound“.
