Atlanta-based blackened heavy metal outfit, Cloak, are ready to set the scene ablaze with their upcoming third full-length album, Black Flame Eternal, out May 26th via Season of Mist. To give a taste of what’s to come, the group has dropped their new single, “Invictus,” accompanied by a blistering music video co-directed by Nic Adams and Cloak frontman Scott Taysom. Additionally, the group has announced a special hometown album release performance at The Earl in Atlanta, GA, on June 10th, where they’ll be playing tracks from the new record live for the first time. 


Cloak drummer Sean Bruneau comments:

“No composition written by the band has so perfectly captured our essence to date. The time spent in isolation allowed not only personal growth, but tremendous reflection on a lifetime of inspiration. The song came together aggressively once we started working on new material, and it was clear that we were approaching things differently this time around. Anger and empowerment were much more evident as opposed to the more melody driven material in the past albums. To us, ‘Invictus’ is a thesis of sorts. It’s everything about who we were before this band and where we are headed together moving forward.”
