Canadian post-rock/doom unit Loviatar have released a lyric video for “Nascent (Stygian Wyrm Part I)”, the opening number of their forthcoming self-titled debut record. The band said of the track:

‘Nascent’ is the first movement of Loviatar‘s ‘Stygian Wyrm’ trilogy. The song relates the birth of a dragon in fire, death and thunder, his formative years in solitude and his experiences among humans. Focusing on human failings, corruption and the inevitable apocalypse, Loviatar‘s debut opus will be released over the coming weeks.”

The group recently signed to Prosthetic Records, who will be releasing Loviatar on July 28th. Pre-orders are available now at this location.

Loviatar track listing:

1. “Nascent (Stygian Wyrm Part I)”
2. “Discordant (Stygian Wyrm Part II)”
3. “Ascendant (Stygian Wyrm Part III)”
4. “Blind Goddes Of The Nine Plagues”
