Nachtblut Bassist Discusses New Album "Vanitas"

Gothic metal is a strange sub-genre. In one sense, there's a typical sound which make it easy to identify, but in another sense, it defies categorisation, with several bands being labelled with the tag, despite not sounding alike. Whatever the case, it's a varied term which houses some of metal's best (and darkest) bands. One such group who are still going strong after fifteen years of blackness is Nachtblut, the Osnabrück based band which this month released their sixth album, "Vanitas."

"Vanitas" is sure to delight long time fans of the band, yet it also offers new experiences and surprises, perfect for listeners new and old. To find out more about the album, as well as the striking music videos "Das Puppenhaus" and "Leierkinder," the band's outlook on socially distanced show and much more, I caught up with bassist Ablaz, who joined prior to recording the fifth album, "Apostasie." You can listen to the interview in full below. More...

Nachtblut Talks Dark Metal And New Album "Dogma"

Germany's Nachtblut defies the conventions of extreme music, freely mixing electronic sounds with black and symphonic metal, and that melding of opposing musical worlds has reached new heights with the band's latest release "Dogma" (reviewed here).

Vocalist Askeroth recently corresponded with Metalunderground.com to give fans a deeper look into the world of Nachtblut's dark metal, including signing on with Napalm Records and recording the latest album. Check out the full interview below for a run-down on the band's history, an explanation of the some of the lyrics, and to see Askeroth's incredulity when I mentioned that some of the music feels like it would make a great video game soundtrack.

To get a taste of "Dogma" for yourself, check out the album preview, or watch the new "Ich Trinke Blut" music video. More...
