IMHA TARIKAT release lyric video of non-album track ‘Son of Ultradevotion’ to be performed at PROPHECY FEST
Only days after announcing their new full-length “Hearts Unchained – At War with a Passionless World” and releasing a stunning first video single ‘Radical Righteousness’, IMHA TARIKAT reveal a new lyric video and the track ‘Son of Ultradevotion’, which the German black metal progenies will perform at Prophecy Fest this week.
‘Son of Ultradevotion’ is an exclusive digital single that will not be released on the forthcoming album.
IMHA TARIKAT comment: “Our surprise single ‘Son of Ultradevotion’ deals with bitterness drowning out sorrow beyond recognition”, Kerem Yilmaz explains. “This sorrow runs so deep and is so full of pain that the battle against darkness has already been lost. This stands in opposition to our new songs on the album, which represent triumph through constructive growth as a person. ‘Son of Ultradevotion’ fails to offer any escape from the voices that whisper solutions like needles stuck into the skin, that twist the stomach, and that break the mind. This is the result of futile decisions. It is a dysfunctional alliance between honesty and the beast. There is no happy end!”
“Hearts Unchained – At War with a Passionless World” has been scheduled for release on December 2.

Prophecy Fest was founded in 2015 and even the first edition was already sold out. This singular event for dark and innovative music takes place in the Balver Kulturhöhle (“Balve culture cave”) in the Hönnetal (“Valley of Hönne”) near the town of Balve in the Sauerland region of the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia.
The naturally formed karst cave has been used by humans already during the palaeolithic age. Is is an important archaeological site that yielded remains from many periods up and until medieval times. According to legend and the old Icelandic Thidreksaga, the mythical blacksmith Wayland learned his magical trade from dwarven masters in this cave.
The gravity of its history and the special acoustics of the Balver Cave provide a unique atmosphere that fits the musical programme of the Prophecy Fest perfectly.
