The Lurking Fear Releases New Video

Swedish death metal group The Lurking Fear will soon release debut album “Out Of The Voiceless Grave” worldwide. The album is set to drop next week on August 11th, 2017 via Century Media Records.

A new single entitled “The Starving Gods Of Old” is being launched today via a lyric video created by Costin Chioreanu / Twilight 13 Media, based on the album’s artwork by Stefan Thanneur. Check it out below.

The Lurking Fear’s vocalist Tomas Lindberg commented: “So, for the next video clip we had the idea of letting our old friend Costin work on it, but having him use Stefan’s amazing cover artwork. I think Costin really captured the eeriness of the track 'The Starving Gods Of Old' perfectly. It feels like you are thrown into the darkened void of the starving gods themselves, being devoured by them alive, while getting your ears blasted by another serious dose of twisted death metal madness. The song is like an anthem to what lurks beyond this world. Like watching an old 70´s horror movie on a worn out VHS cassette." More...

The Lurking Fear Signs To Century Media Records

Something is lurking in the shadows...

The newly launched Swedish death metal group The Lurking Fear has signed a worldwide deal with Century Media Records and is currently working on a debut album, expected to be released later this year.

Composed of members/ex-members of illustrious and influential acts like At The Gates, The Haunted, Skitsystem, Disfear or God Macabre, The Lurking Fear isn't just another retro all-star project, but a real band of five death metal lifers, who organically got together in order to celebrate the metal breed closest to their roots as well as their hearts.

The Lurking Fear checked in with the following comment: "We are a Death Metal band. Not your average new wave of old school Death Metal band. We play Death Metal from the heart with pure emotional impact and a focused artistic vision. This is the music we live and breathe. Always have, always will.

"We have all played in various other bands for over 25 years and we just want to spew out the music that we want to hear. When we get together this is what comes out of naturally, because we share the exact same reference points. We love "Seven Churches" and "Mental Funeral" for the exact same reasons.

"We want our death metal ugly, twisted and possessed. We miss the urgency, intensity and 'realness' in a lot of the modern Death Metal, therefore it is natural for us to stray away from the streamlined sounds of today, but rather focus on bringing sheer, natural weirdness and horror back to the table..."

"Introducing, The Lurking Fear. Tomas Lindberg - vocals, Jonas Stålhammar - Guitars, Fredrik Wallenberg - Guitars, Andreas Axelson - Bass and Adrian Erlandsson - drums.

"The Lurking Fear is bringing sheer, natural weirdness and horror back to the scene, as we want our death metal ugly, twisted and possessed.

"Riffs should stir up real feelings of repulsion, and disgust deep down in your soul, and vocals should sounds like hounds of hell howling at the moon. Stay tuned! Art by Branca Studios." More...
