Twilight’s Embrace Set To Release New Death Doom Opus ‘Penance’

Nottingham, UK doom trio Twilight’s Embrace reveal details for their new record, and follow up to 2014’s acclaimed debut By Darkness Undone. Entitled Penance, the self-produced EP is set for release 23rd February and spans 4 death doom soundscapes.

“After a couple of years that saw some members leaving and little in the way of live performances, we decided an EP was a good way to ease back into things and to let people know we’re still alive, comments band leader and guitarist Ben Sizer. “Musically, the new tracks deliberately continue the path of previous releases, attempting to take classic doom-death recipes and add other influences to taste.”

Tracklist:

1. Dying Earth
2. Curtain Call
3. Penance
4. It’s Too Late (Paradise Lost Cover)
