In 2004, the song Sinful Decadence was recorded as an attempt to display Matriarch’s virtuosity beyond the confines of the Black Apples demo, marking an evolutionary step to their repertoire. This continued with the recording of the song Profanity in mid 2005, further exemplifying Matriarch’s presence in the metal world. The summer of 2006 saw the departure of co-founding member and guitarist/vocalist Ara when it became apparent of her needs to focus more on her personal life. In the Fall of 2006, Matriarch began recording their debut album, Revered unto the Ages, and finalized the recording process in December after a grueling four month process. The album also sees drummer Shamara stepping in to perform the low/death metal vocal duties that became vacant with the absence of Ara from the band.
Revered unto the Ages was released in 2007. Purevolume Profile Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
