Lyric Video For New Song “The Dirge” Issued By Nighon

Finnish industrial/symphonic metal act Nighon issued a powerful lyric video for the new song “The Dirge.” The video is the second clip lifted from “The Somme,” the band’s brand new album which is scheduled for release on May 5th via Inverse Records.

Björn commented: “The lyrics I wrote tells us about the consequences of letting our hate spin out of control, and when governments twist lies into truths to justify war!”

“The Somme” is a conceptual release with stories from World War I, World War II and the similarities between those and the crises we see today in our world. It’s track listing is as follows:

1. Marseille 1914
2. The Greatest Of Catastrophes (see music video here)
3. The Dirge
4. Lest We Forget
5. Medic
6. Blow Them To Hell
7. Altafjord

Hukutus Debuts New Single “Metsä ja yö”

Finnish band Hukutus debuts a new song entitled “Metsä ja yö” (meaning “The Forest and the Night”). The cover art for the single was done by Li Virtanen.

Explains the band: “Emotionally, this songs steps into black metal territory, but in ethereal and mid-paced ways. We pursued to capture a feeling of sacredness. The title translates to ‘The Forest and the Night’ and the concept is rather straightforward — on one hand, the song is an ode to our heritage and on the other, it describes a force that is older than our world, from a time before any light was created. Outside laws of nature and beyond all restrictions. And it guides our path through this existence.”

Check out now “Metsä ja yö” below.
