German melanholic death/doom metal act Décembre Noir presents their new EP »Pale Serenades«, out now via Lifeforce Records!
German melanholic death/doom metal band Décembre Noir presents their new EP, entitled »Pale Serenades«, which was just released on September 30th, 2022 via Lifeforce Records.
Says the band: “Finally we can present you the complete »Pale Serenades« EP and from now it is available everywhere. We are very happy to hold this very special release in our hands and thank all the artists involved. First and foremost Alexander Dietz for his tireless commitment.
This EP is very important to us and fulfills a dream. This EP will have a very special place with us. It is also available in our store here!”
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)
»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). 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.
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).
