Cathartic black metal entity Gaerea will be releasing its third full-length album, Mirage, on September 23, 2022. The album track listing, and other details can be found below. In conjunction with this revelation, the enigmatic band is now unveiling the pummeling first single, "Salve," along with a music video.

Gaerea comments: "Today we finally unleash 'Salve' upon you all, the first glimpse of music which will take part of our new album Mirage. 'Salve' is an excruciating voyage into the Vortex's Abyss. A burning Carriage which will lead us all to the Golden Walls of Mental Catharsis and endless suffocating whispers trapped within our bleeding corpses. The Journey between Reality and Perception is about to begin. Join us."
The band additionally offers this deeper explanation into the track's concept, stating, "'Salve' explores the depths of our most disgusting desires. To be trapped inside a world who seeks to rip your body apart. It tells the story of a man who has been placed in a room destined to destroy his soul and then his body. An automated experiment of his own living condition which will ultimately lead to his final form."
Mirage is now available for pre-orders.
