Kambrium Premieres New Track "Dark Lights"

German symphonic power death metallers Kambrium are on the cusp of releasing the sophomore full length album "Dark Reveries," which drops on October 18th via 7Hard Records. Few younger bands impress more than this exciting band, defying genre boundaries by combining extreme elements with power and symphonic metal. The result is blinding brutality enveloped inside a symphonic wall of melody performed with the precision on par with metal’s most veteran acts.

"Dark Reveries" tells the tale of a man who wakes up into his own nightmares and is unable to escape. It features guest vocal appearances from Amanda Somerville (Trillium/Avantasia), Thomas Winkler (Gloryhammer/Ex-Emerald) and newcomer Melanie Mau. The album was produced and mixed by Flaming Row's Martin Schnella, who also provided background vocals and guitar work. For a review of "Dark Reveries," head on over to this location.

Metal Underground.com is proud to provide the exclusive premiere of the new track "Dark Lights," which features a guest vocal appearance from Gloryhammer vocalist Thomas Winkler (Ex-Emerald) (for a review of Gloryhammer's debut LP "Tales From the Kingdom of Fife," head over here).

Keyboardist/composer Jan Hein describes story behind the lyrics: "Dark Lights is about the person who wakes up in his own nightmare. Everything seems so unreal and he can't run away from the shadows who are hunting him." As for his choice of Thomas Winkler Hein added: "I wanted a strong characterful voice for that song. I discovered the band Gloryhammer and was blown away from Thomas' voice. I asked him to sing the song for us. We are overwhelmed by the result! Hope you guys like it too!"
