Nachtblut Uploads New Lyric Video

German dark metal pioneers Nachtblut have reached the final countdown, and today, unveil their fourth single "Die Toten Vergessen Nicht" (engl. The Dead Don’t Forget) before their new full-length, "Vanitas," will be released on October 2, 2020 via Napalm Records.

As the closing track and longest song on their sixth full-length album, the German-based unit delivers a haunting ear-catcher and epic climax with "Die Toten Vergessen Nicht". The dark and morbid mood inexorably invades every part of the body while showcasing the band’s essence on point. Nachtblut have never been afraid of coming up with topics that in general may be considered as unpleasant or that others are afraid of - quite the contrary! The new single proves best and is an ode composed for grim reaper himself. The striking growls of vocalist Askeroth are embedded in an instrumental swirl of orchestral melancholy and brutality at the same time, before an atmospheric outro leads the song to its final rest. If only there could be a repeat button for life too...

Nachtblut on the new single:
"In 'Die Toten Vergessen Nicht' we are dealing with the experience of losing a beloved person. Almost everyone knows the tragic of that situation, which makes you aware more than everything else of transience and mortality. This song is breathing the Vanitas theme - a reminder that nothing last forever. It doesn't need many words, the song and the experience speaking for themselves. A worthy last song on an album about the many facets and aspects of life and being." 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...

Nachtblut Posts New Music Video Online

Today, German dark metal torchbearers Nachtblut unveil the second single "Leierkinder" (engl. Children Of The Lyre) along with an official video, off their upcoming full-length, "Vanitas," to be released on October 2 via Napalm Records.

Starting off with an intoxicating, folk-influenced melody and an addictive rhythm, the new single carries its listener to days of yore, while the dark lyrics create a cynical contrast that shapes the overall ambience. Lyrically, the song refers to a fictional village reigned by a god who dictates the citizen’s state of knowledge. Paired with the fleet-footed, folky main melody and Askeroth’s gloomy, invading vocals, the new single "Leierkinder" sends frightening shivers straight to everyone’s core!

Nachtblut on their new single:
"We are more than proud to present our new song "Leierkinder": the catchy melody and chorus features a driving force, that will cause a lot of energy in front and on stage. But there is more than just a happy melody, as the lyrics come with a deeper meaning. It’s about how you define happiness referred to your personal surroundings and experience. Another issue concerns our understanding of satisfaction and our perception of things, which is also controlled by significant outside influences. Maybe you will take a pause and think about this... or not, but “jeder muss nach dem Liede tanzen, das gerade auf der Walze steht” (engl.: “everyone needs to dance to the tune on the roller”)" More...

Nachtblut To Release New Album In October

Three years since the release of their previous album, "Apostasie," dark metal pioneers Nachtblut return with even more vigor and announce their new gloomy offering, "Vanitas," out October 2nd via Napalm Records.

The first single "Das Puppenhaus" (engl. the dollhouse) is reminiscent of scene giants such as Rammstein and draws the listener deep into the significant Nachtblut sound. Rhythmic guitars weave all throughout this smashing hymn while a steady rhythm underlines the honest lyrics.

The soft, harmonic, yet calm introduction may appear deceptive, but Nachtblut is by no means representing their song in a restrained manner. Askeroth’s dark voice effortlessly shifts between whispering growls and clean vocals while authentically smashing the listener's ears.

Nachtblut on the new single:
"With “Das Puppenhaus“ we combined an issue that seems to be outdated, but actually is more up to date than you might think. The title of song sounds nice and harmonious, but if you see behind the curtain you will realize the omnipresent and claustrophobic atmosphere. With the dark video for „Das Puppenhaus“ we substantiate the songs prevailing mood and giving the metaphor we use a strong visual cue." More...

Varg Announces Shows With Wolfchant

Varg will soon be hitting the road with Wolfchant and Nachblut, with dates available after the jump. Noiseart Records also comments:

"Since their founding in 2005, German pagan / viking metal mongers VARG have continuously worked on the perfection of their unique style: the debut Wolfszeit (2007) and the following split EP Schildfront (2008) still boasted black metal influences, whilst Blutaar (2010) and all releases afterwards established ultra-catchy heathen anthems as the main trademark of the wolf pack! Their most recent aural assault Guten Tag (2012) presents the band in finest form that gives the competition a run for their money with hits that defy the genre`s boundaries. The album entered the German album charts at # 25 and brought Varg the well-deserved final breakthrough!

"The best way to indulge in the Guten Tag songs and other classic cuts??? Live on stage of course, with a well-filled drinking horn and hundreds of other fan wolves singing along! Which is why Varg have decided to bring 'blood and fire' to you in October… More...
