Haunted Premiere New Music Video For “Mourning Sun”

Last friday the international doom promises HAUNTED unleashed their new studio album, “Dayburner” via Twin Earth Records.

In celebration of the album release, the band revealed the video of the second single ‘Mourning Sun’ streaming below:

Cristina Chimirri, vocalist, tells about the song:

“When I wrote the lyrics of Mourning Sun, I thought about the “feeling of Death” which sometimes comes over us inexplicably. It’s a kind of call to the other side, that a lot of people live like a halluciation in a dream. Then there’s a will to generate the nightmare, the darkness, the night. Aim to the sun and turn it off.”

The drummer Dario Casabona adds: “The ‘incipit’ of a journey that only lasts a day, to the dark.”

The creation of the video has been entrusted to the Canadian artist, resident of Glasgow, Teresa Elizabeth Lobos.

Cloak Releasing New Self-Titled

On Samhain of 2015, Cloak entered Rising Tide Studios with Anthony Lunn to record a self-titled debut EP, which is being released via Boris Records on June 20.

“In the Darkness, the Path” is a crushing mid-paced track that is by far the band’s heaviest, while “The Hunger” presents an eerie, ghastly sound to close the record off. The lyrical concepts for each are just as important as the music itself, focusing on the spiritual transformation that opposes what most would deem as earthly truths. The result of the recording is one of pure chaos that haunts you well after the music is over.

Cloak invites the listener to destroy your perception, open your hearts to the darkness, and venture to venomous depths!
