Draconian Uploads New Lyric Video

Today, Draconian, the sovereigns of melancholic Gothic Doom Metal and far-reaching lyrics, release their fourth single, "Moon Over Sabaoth", cut from their upcoming studio album, "Under A Godless Veil," out October 30, 2020 via Napalm Records.

The seventh full-length of the Swedish five-piece and second one with talented Heike Langhans on vocal duties, appears exactly five years after Draconian's latest album, "Sovran," and guarantees a complete immersion into the band’s essence. Starting off with a soft guitar intro, Draconian's new single "Moon Over Sabaoth" soon breaks off into Anders Jacobsson’s ghastly growls paired with a stomping doomy rhythm. Complemented by Heike's angelic voice, the vocals will touch deep inside your soul and interweave with stunning melodies and bone-crushing riffs. An artful conceptualized lyric video underlines these atmospheric tunes of melancholic beauty.

Lead guitarist and main composer Johan Ericson comments:
"Moon Over Sabaoth is a perspective song that crawls in towards its end destination. Monotone doom riffing accompanied by some heavy drums. Together with Anders harsh, desperate vocals leading up to an almost anthemic chorus. We stand tall..." More...

Nachtblut Releases New Music Video

Nachtblut, a flagship of German dark metal, show off with their gloomy new offering, "Vanitas," out October 2 via Napalm Records, and unleash the third single, "Meine Grausamkeit Kennt Keine Grenzen" (engl. My Cruelty Knows No Bounds) to the world, along with a harmoniously conceived music video.

Ever since their debut release, "Das erste Abendmahl" (engl. The First Supper), in 2007, the four-piece has been shaping the dark metal scene with its unique sound. "Meine Grausamkeit Kennt Keine Grenzen" is yet another spine-tingling spawn of the band’s unmistakable work: Nachtblut’s third single quickly enfolds its harsh compelling sound of riff driven blast beats, right after the eerie intro. Completed by Askeroth’s pervasive voice, the song draws the listener deeper into their new album "Vanitas."

Nachtblut on the new single:
"Right into your face - our new single and video 'Meine Grausamkeit Kennt Keine Grenzen' (My Cruelty Knows No Bounds) is unleashed! The song is a hymn to everyone who's full of hate and wants to see the world burning down. 'Meine Grausamkeit Kennt Keine Grenzen' doesn’t take any prisoners, shows no mercy. Screams and growls, filthy riffs and blast beats will be the support for your anger!" More...
