Darkwoods My Betrothed from Finland, featuring Nightwish keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen, have unveiled a lyric video for the track, “Murktide And Midnight Sun.” The band is back with a new album called Angel Of Carnage Unleashed, which can be obtained on November 12 via Napalm Records, and is their first release since 1998’s Witch-Hunts.
The band had this to say about the new single,
“It was very important for us when choosing the singles off the new album to demonstrate the versatility of our sound: how we can put forward a blasting black metal carnage with tortured shrieks and follow that up with an epic anthem with clean vocals — and the two songs definitely sound like the same band. Epic songs and clean vocals have always been part of our trademark sound and “Murktide And Midnight Sun” is absolutely one of the finest and catchiest epic anthems that we have recorded.”
The first Darkwoods My Betrothed single “In Evil, Sickness And In Grief,” dropped this past August 30th.
Vocalist/guitarist Pasi Kankkunen says:
“It was very important for us to have the original lineup on the comeback album. We also agreed right at the beginning of the process to share the songwriting in equal proportions, just as we did on the 1996 classic album ‘Autumn Roars Thunder‘.”
