Crimfall premieres video for new single “Until Falls The Rain”

– August 16th, 2017 –

On August 25th, Finnish cinemascope metallers Crimfall will release their new album, Amain, worldwide via Metal Blade Records! Crimfall has now premiered the first video clip in support of the new album. Please visit youtube.com/watch?v=VcTmunax5OE to see the video for the new single “Until Falls the Rain”!

Crimfall comments: “Before we unleash the third storm that is ‘Amain‘, we present you our very first music video. ‘Until Falls The Rain’ is the crushing conclusion for the album, last simmering truths are laid low, throats bared against the unforgiving fall. It was a long day of drowning under homemade sprinklers, shooing away fire brigades and mopping away thousand lakes of water. In the end we are more than satisfied with the forlorn end result.”

The video was directed by Olli Hakkinen and shot by Max Smeds.

For more previews of Amain, both singles “The Last of Stands” and “Mother Of Unbelievers” can be heard at: metalblade.com/crimfall – where the record can be pre-ordered in the following formats:

–bluish gray marbled vinyl (USA exclusive – limited to 100 copies)

Amain is Crimfall‘s most ambitious album yet, combining familiar elements with fresh inspiration, and wreathed in massive crisp production from Fascination Street Studios. Featuring music that spans from monumental orchestrations to songs whispered over fading pyres, Amain contains layers upon layers of grand melodies woven between jagged shadows. On this new release, Crimfall also continues to sing the stories of wars waged in vain, advocating freedom from religious dogmas and the bloody chains of tradition.

Haken Releases “Lapse” Music Video

Haken is set to hit the road in North America later this month for the band’s 10th anniversary tour. In advance of that trek, the band just released a brand new psychedelic and sci-fi animated video for the track “Lapse,” taken from last year’s “Affinity” (reviewed here) and created by Miles Skarin at Crystal Spotlight.

The band comments: “Lapse was one of the first tracks we wrote for Affinity. Now more than a year since the album’s release, it’s great to finally give this song a chance to stand out on its own, as it’s one of our favorites!

“Visually, we wanted to maintain a consistency with our videos for ‘Initiate,’ ‘Earthrise,’ and ‘The Endless Knot,’ so we returned to Miles Skarin at Crystal Spotlight to complete the series. The video incorporates a 3D motion capture technique (previously used on Frost*’s ‘Numbers’ video) to tie in with Affinity’s themes of artificial intelligence/consciousness.”

Ne Obliviscaris Reveals “Urn” Album Cover

Visionary Australian progressive metal crew Ne Obliviscaris will release new album “Urn” on October 27th, 2017. This upcoming full-length release follows 2014’s “Citadel” (reviewed here).

Season Of Mist comments: “The Australian extreme prog stars have honed and re-balanced the key elements of their unique sound to a razor sharp musical edge. Fierce growls intertwine with emotive vocals, while devastating, intricate guitar riffs and thundering drums play against an unleashed violin and gorgeous string arrangements. Ne Obliviscaris innovate the epic, progressive and intense extreme metal forms of expression once again, marking a new peak in the steep rise of the band.”

“Urn” is now available for pre-order across various CD and LP formats at the Season of Mist E-Shop. Regarding the new album, frontman Tim Charles comments: “After almost three years of honing our craft in every way that we possibly could, we finally present to you the first track from an album of which we could not be more proud of. ‘Urn’ feels like the culmination of all our years of hard work; the delivery of everything that we have wanted to create. Music and art as our imaginations see it fit to be. ‘Intra Venus’ is more concise than much of our work and is in fact the only song on ‘Urn’ under ten minutes, but one that we feel is a great introduction to the record. We hope that you will enjoy it.”

1. Libera (Part I) – Saturnine Spheres
2. Libera (Part II) – Ascent of Burning Moths
3. Intra Venus [streaming here]
4. Eyrie
5. Urn (Part I) – And Within The Void We Are Breathless
6. Urn (Part II) – As Embers Dance In Our Eyes
