Following the release of the superlative debut full-length record from Sheffield based blackened post-metal outfit Ba'al, we decided it was high time to catch up with Nick Gosling (guitarist) and ask some pertient questions about the band, the record and refelctions on a life in the creative fringes.
UK extreme metal beasts SHADOWFLAG will release their fourth album, entitled 'In Asylum Requiem' through Clobber on 19.06.20. They are a band who have forged a strong path on the UK scene and have established themselves as one of the most popular and energetic bands around. This new release sees them take on a more raw and chilling approach and the results are outstanding.This is the first single from 'in Asylum Requiem' - 'From Agony To Cold'.
'It's with great excitement that we begin to unleash our latest offering onto the world. This record is timely - at its heart is the story of isolation in a mad, over-developed, over-populated and selfish world. We have stepped away from everything we once were to become everything we now are. This is the sound of our journey and for all those who have taken that journey with us. Decay stinks. No matter who you have become. In Asylum Requiem.' - JJ Flames (bass vocals)
More information will follow on the release of this excellent record.
