Metal.de exclusively presents the lyric video for »King And Queen« by Italian gothic/death rockers The Sade! The new album of the band, entitled »Nocturna«, will be released on October 28th via Go Down Records!
Says the band: “The album’s most intense track, slow and decadent, is about the relationship between man and woman, elevated to king and queen. Life’s sorrows infect their dark love. Together they will only find peace in death.”
»Nocturna« is a gloomy album, influenced by the pandemic situation of the last two years and it further increases the already dark style of The Sade. This work collects eclectic tracks composed between 2019 and 2020, which move far away from the rock’n’roll vibes of the early days, to turn into a new dark-wave and goth mood.
The cover with the black rooster is emblematic, complex and represents the triumph of the “beast” in a pessimistic and nihilistic depiction of the human condition, which is now more fragile and guilty than ever. It is a visual recall to the Middle Ages as a time of darkness, dominated by ignorance and uncertainty, comparable to what we are experiencing today. The rooster is a symbol of passage between life and death, light and shadow, beginning and ending, fall and rebirth, unstable like the mood during recent lockdowns. It leads us on a musical journey into the deep darkness of this alienation: melancholic moments alternate with massive doses of synthetic sounds, with 80s and post-punk overtones.
