German melancholic death/doom metal band Décembre Noir premiere a music video for the new single »A Swan Lake Full Of Tears« featuring Mick Moss of Antimatter.
The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming new EP, »Pale Serenades«, which will be released on September 30th, 2022 via Lifeforce Records. »Pale Serenades« is a very special release with rearrangements of classic Décembre Noir tracks featuring Mick Moss (Antimatter), Aaron Stainthorpe (My Dying Bride), Michelle Darkness (End Of Green) and Matthew K. Heafy (Trivium).
01. A Swan Lake Full Of Tears (feat. Mick Moss)
02. Barricades (feat. Aaron Stainthorpe)
03. Small.Town.Depression (feat. Michelle Darkness)
04. The Forsaken Earth (feat. Matthew K. Heafy)
»A Swan Lake Full Of Tears« is the first single off the band’s forthcoming EP »Pale Serenades« – out September 30th on Lifeforce Records and up now for pre-order as Ltd. 12″ Vinyl, CD Digipak and Digital: orcd.co/dn_pale_serenades
The four songs of »Pale Serenades« come from very different creative periods of the band from Thuringia – at least the original versions. Chronologically descending, Décembre Noir’s new EP offers one track from each of the albums »The Renaissance Of Hope« (2020), »Autumn Kings« (2018), »Forsaken Earth« (2016) and »A Discouraged Believer« (2014).

On the realization of »Pale Serenades« participate renowned greats: Mick Moss (Antimatter), Aaron Stainthorpe (My Dying Bride), Michelle Darkness (End Of Green) as well as Matthew K. Heafy (Trivium). Together the musicians develop a dark, touching sound. Death and doom metal take a back seat this time. Décembre Noir and their guests change the stylistic framework. They stage the songs acoustic and rocky, in other places electronically enriched or modern-metallic.
