For the second day in a row, we’ve teamed up with France’s Season Of Mist so that you can score an advance listen to brand new music from one of their upcoming releases. This time, we’ve a track entitled ‘Killed And Served By The Devil’ from Holland’s horror metal trio Carach Angren, taken from their new album This Is No Fairytale.
Like it? It’s released on 23 February but you can preorder a copy here!
Carach Angren set out to claim the throne of this dark domain with their fourth full-length This Is No Fairy Tale. Flamboyant orchestral madness contrasts eerily with the icy buzzing of black metal inspired riffs coalescing into haunting melodies. Fiercely rasping vocals and the mercilessly rattling drums whip a terror-filled storyline forward into the waiting darkness. Carach Angren once again step into an even more sinister dimension than before and surpass the war-ridden nightmares portrayed on previous album Where The Corpses Sink Forever. The evil visitations began in the year 2004 with paranormal cases recorded on the demo The Chase Vault Tragedy. Soon after the Ethereal Veiled Existence EP (2005) gave a prelude to the full blown haunting at Lammendam (2008), which was followed by a stormy journey onboard a cruel ghost vessel entitled Death Came Through A Phantom Ship (2010).
With each release Carach Angren developed their unique baroque and unashamedly theatric style, which perfectly fits the cinematic horror concepts of the Dutch. Their eccentric and capturing live performances quickly gained them a large following in Europe with the US catching up in the wake of the release of Where The Corpses Sink Forever in 2012. Now Carach Angren are ready to unleash the demons again in a dark tale of devilish witchcraft: This Is No Fairy Tale is poised to put a spell on you and will continue to haunt your stereo for a long time to come.
