The Order Of Israfel Premieres New Track

Swedish doom metal act The Order Of Israfel has teamed up with Metal Underground.com to premiere the lyric video for the new track "Swords to the Sky." The song will appear on the new album "The Red Robes," which is set for release on May 27th via Napalm Records. The album will be available as 6 page digipack with the bonus DVD, as well as 2LP Gatefold edition, with pre-orders available at this location.

The band's first steps on the debut "Wisdom" might have been heavily influenced by genre icons such as Cathedral, Pentagram and Witchcraft, but the four piece has firmly established its very own brand of slow-motion goodness in 2016: folk and the NWOBHM play a big role in The Order Of Israfel cosmos, but these guys also have a knack for Thin Lizzy-isms. The result is a wondrous, mystical piece of art featuring unforgettable vocals and ten-ton riffing that will haunt you for aeons!

The track listing is:

1. Staff In The Sand
2. The Red Robes
3. In Thrall To The Sorceress
4. Swords To The Sky
5. Von Sturmer (see music video here)
6. Fallen Children
7. A Shadow In The Hills
8. The Thirst

The Order Of Israfel Signs To Napalm Records

When Tom Sutton left the doom band Church of Misery, it was to make his long-established grand vision of an epic doom band come true.

To accomplish this, he moved to Sweden and hooked his strings together with Patrik Andersson Winberg (ex Doomdogs), Hans Lilja, and Staffan Bjorck from the band Wildebeest. Using doom, folk music, and the feel of old horror movies to create dark divine music, the group became The Order of Israfel.

The band has now signed a record deal with Spinning Goblin / Napalm Records, and commented on the signing:

"The Order Of Israfel are thrilled to announce that we have signed to Napalm Records, and will be releasing our first album, 'Wisdom,' in the Autumn, 2014. We're extremely proud of the record, and know that Napalm will be the perfect home for it. We are also very excited to be sharing a label with the extremely legendary Candlemass, who have been one of the biggest influences on the sound of the band from the beginning. Cheers!"
