Draconian stream a brand new lyric video for third single »The Sacrificial Flame« from their upcoming full-length album, »Under A Godless Veil«
Swedish gothic doom metal band Draconian stream a brand new lyric video for third single »The Sacrificial Flame« taken from their upcoming full-length album, »Under A Godless Veil«, set to release on October 30th, 2020, via Napalm Records.
Singer Heike Langhans comments: “This is definitely one of the heaviest songs on the album and reminds me of all the old-school riffs and moody atmospheres that got me into Doom Metal in the first place. A dark and confrontational anthem that stirs me inside and silently demands answers from all that is Archonic in this world. Also one of my favorite vocal performances by Anders on the album.”
Almost five years after their sixth long-player »Sovran«, Draconian once again cast their breathtaking veil of melancholy over the world. This second full-length release featuring singer Heike Langhans delivers a captivating mélange of dreary doom and contrasty vocals and mixes Heike’s angelic female voice with Anders Jakobsson’s death growls. The one-hour long album, graced with a haunting cover artwork by Natalia Drepina, is carrying the legacy of gothic doom metal à la My Dying Bride or Trees Of Eternity into the new decade and will drag the listener into a sorrowful cosmos right with the first notes of the spellbinding opener »Sorrow Of Sophia« that interweaves beauty with crippling depression. After crushing slow rhythms and the fragile »Sleepwalkers« that leads through barren soundscapes, the band – founded in Säffle, Sweden in 1994 – rises up to their best in the nine-minute long »Ascend Into Darkness«, which will echo in the listener’s ears long after the final chord has died away.
