Witherfall Premiere New Single & Video “Moment of Silence”

On November 2nd, 2018, US dark melodic metal outfit WITHERFALL will release “A Prelude to Sorrow”, the follow-up to 2017’s “Nocturnes and Requiems”. Now, the band is proud to reveal another glimpse at this new opus: Check out their new video for “Moment of Silence” below:

Explains the band:

“Like our first single off of “A Prelude to Sorrow”, ‘Ode to Despair’, ‘Moment of Silence’ continues on with our dark tale of the last days of WITHERFALL drummer Adam Sagan. This song deals with the anger we felt towards not being able to control what the eventual outcome could be. The chorus was the first thing that came during the writing of this song. Joseph had chorus melody and progression written and actually showed it to Adam during the last visit they shared. Though the dark irony was not lost on him he loved the idea. ‘Moment of Silence’ went through multiple demo iterations before the one that is found on “A Prelude to Sorrow” was officially arranged and finalized by Jake and Joseph in Florida during the recording of ‘The Long Walk Home (December)’ in November of 2017. In our recent poll you had asked for a track that is “violent with a big chorus” well, here it is.”

New Music Video “To Your Brethren In The Dark” Released By Satyricon

Norway’s Satyricon released the new video clip for “To Your Brethren In The Dark” courtesy of Metal Injection at this location, or even easier – just down in the player below. The song is taken from the band’s latest album “Deep calleth upon Deep,” which was released on September 22nd via Napalm Records.

Speaking about the new video, frontman and band visionary, Satyr tells us, “I wanted ‘To your brethren in the dark’ to be a director’s interpretation of the song, rather than a band performance type of thing. Seeing what we do through the eyes of another artist is always interesting to me and just like the song, the video has become a little bit of a journey on it’s own. ‘To your brethren in the dark’ is definitely one of the flagship songs on the record. It is about emotion, our nature, the spirits, the autumn, the sombre and rainy days, those who we lost and the ones who we have not met yet. You could say it is a tribute to the sorrow in man and to the drama of the nature we surround ourselves with. A song for the dark towers of the past and those who will rise in the future. Pass the torch to your brethren in the dark.”

New EP “Cultus In Tenebris” Announced By Ctulu

German sea storming extreme metal act Ctulu will release the 4-Track EP entitled “Cultus in Tenebris” on October 6th in the U.S. via Static Tension Recordings.

“Cultus in Tenebris” was recorded at the same time as the 2016 selt-titled album. Ctulu wanted to reduce both these works to minimum duration while containing maximum quality. The band has never before filtered so many ideas that didn’t make it on the final release.

“Cultus in Tenebris” is a concept EP that tries to catch the spirit of Necronomicon rituals. It is a gathering of exotic weirdness, of seeing in the dark, of praising the old, capricious, mad and wild gods. This is Ctulu’s first genuine U.S. release.

More information on the EP is expected soon. The artwork can be seen here:
