Dark Suns To Release New Album Next Month

German progressive dark metallers DARK SUNS will release their fourth album, "Grave Human Genuine", on February 25 via Prophecy Productions. According to a press release, the CD's "unconventional title was chosen with care and purpose, as it represents the three characteristic elements of this work: 'Grave' signifies darkness, the sinister force, and the inevitable fate. 'Human' is synonymous with the music's inherent soul-depth, while 'Genuine' means 'real' or 'authentic' and hence refers to DARK SUNS' uncompromising approach to music."

On the subject of the new album's musical direction, the press release adds, "DARK SUNS don't merely pick up where the successful predecessor, 'Existence' (2005), left off, they present themselves as many-facetted as never before. A clear nod to doom, complex polyrhythms, unusual and diverse instruments and, last but not least, drummer Niko Knappe's characteristic yearning vocals comprise the album's cornerstones. The variety of sounds stretches from angular metal riff attacks via atmospheric ambient soundscapes and techno reminiscences to avant-garde influences — despite this complexity, an accomplished musical mosaic of enormous expressiveness. Exciting nuances are created by the incomparable bass of PAIN OF SALVATION's long-time member Kristoffer Gildenlöw, and DISILLUSION's Schmidt's guest vocals in 'Flies In Amber'."

The album will be released as a limited-edition digipack CD with a bonus track and as a normal jewel-case edition.
