"For your first real taste of Hell, a teaser of the new album is now available (see below) that features music from all the songs from 'The Promise of Hell'. Later this month we will also release the new track 'Dead and Dying' as the first official single.
"The new album will be the final part of a trilogy, the closing of a chapter. It will bear the trademark sound of Soulfallen with some new flavours directly from the ever-burning kitchens of Hell. The story will continue where Grave New World left off: at the burial of the world. Something has gone terribly wrong and life has united with death in a way never seen before. Humanity is not allowed rest but trapped in a Hell where even death cannot save those already dead. Expect one Hell of a journey into an inferno of soul tearing sadness, unearthly ires and all the creatures caught in between. More...
