Polish death metal veterans In Twilight’s Embrace recently announced that the fourth studio effort from the band will be entitled “Vanitas.” The album drops on September 22nd via Arachnophobia Records. Today, the band premiered the stunning music video for the new track “As Future Evaporates.” You can check it out at this location, or even more conveniently in the player at the bottom.
“Vanitas” was recorded, mixed and mastered in 2017 by Marcin Rybicki at Vintage Records and Left Hand Sounds.
The video was shot “amidst the woods and lakes of the Western Pomerania region, where I come from,” explains vocalist, Cyprian Lakomy. The band traveled to a desolate island in that region, with no access to electric power and a very weak cell phone reception. Cyprian visits this place whenever he needs to detach himself from people and everyday realities. He confesses that “the solitude and total silence of this place enabled us to capture the mood of the song accurately.”
The video reflects the atmosphere of the entire new album. Cyprian explains: “The video conveys the leitmotif of our entire new album – that death accompanies our whole lives. We encounter it at different stages and its growing awareness should drive us to make the most out of the time we were given. Sadly, few have enough guts to aim at something more than barely surviving.”
The track list for “Vanitas” is:
1. The Hell of Mediocrity (song streaming here)
2. Fan the Flame
3. As Future Evaporates
5. Flesh Falls, No Ghost Lifts
