Thraenenkind Reveals New Album "The Elk" Details

Post-black metal act Thraenenkind, which features bassist Nathanael from Heretoir, has announced the band's new album will be titled "The Elk." Nathanael commented:

"Besides the new singer Nils (Fäulnis, Ophis), Torsten of Agrypnie and myself have done vocals on this great release - expect something different from the older material but yet something very melodic, mature and absorbing."

The track listing is as follows:

1. Monument
2. Just another way of expressing defeat
3. The king is dead
4. My transparent heart
5. Today, the sea (Anja's song)
6. Deleting those three words
7. Eternal youth
8. Silence is everything
9. Seven dead horses
10. Forest
11. This story of permanence
12. The elk

The following press release was also issued about the album:

"The upcoming Thränenkind debut album will be a concept album with about an hour running time. It will tell you the story of two siblings, who are on a roadtrip to the funeral of their father. On this trip they meet friends of former times, old memories, tragedy, hope, death and a mysterious 'stranger.'

"The story is set in the northwest of the USA. But it is a methaphorical story and could take place everywhere on earth and everyone could be a protagonist. What counts is what the heart says.

"Concerning the music there will be some changes and alterations compared to older Thränenkind releases, but still atmosphere will be the main point of Thränenkind's music. Some songs are really slow and have a little touch of crustcore in them. Some are fast and unfold the power of black metal, while others are completely instrumental songs with a lot of atmosphere.

"Around the end of this year the album will be released and you will have the possibility to buy this record, which is made of heart's blood and contains everything Thränenkind stands for. Check out our Facebook page once in a while and you will get the chance to listen to some songs before the album is released."
