DARKEST ERA “Severance” CD officially released in Europe today along with new videoclip

DARKEST ERA have released a new video for the track ‘Beyond the Grey Veil’ on the same day that the band’s new album ‘Severance’ receives its European release via Cruz Del Sur Music. The video can be seen here:

Speaking about the new video, Guitarist Ade Mulgrew said: “Beyond the Grey Veil is the thematic centrepiece of the album. All roads lead to that song in some ways and it’s pretty representative of the kind of atmosphere we wanted to conjure up  on Severance. Even Costin Chioreanu based the album artwork on it.  The video was directed by Angus Mitchell, an extremely talented guy who was instantly on the same page as us in terms of the aesthetic we wanted to achieve.

DARKEST ERA sophomore album “Severance” Compact can be purchased here.

“Severance” features the remarkable artwork of Costin Chioreanu, and was described by Last Rites webmagazine as “the sound of a remarkable band, wholly at peace with itself“. Indeed, all fans of the “Last Caress of Light” will find in Darkest Era‘s latest work a matured band that really feels comfortable having reached the top of their game. With a sound described as “a collision between Iron Maiden, Thin Lizzy and Primordial” – thanks again Last Rites!-, the band is ready to hit 2014 like a storm, first with the release of “Severance”, and then with a UK tour planned for late September 2014.

Northern Ireland’s Darkest Era have released a lyric video for ‘Sorrow’s Boundless Realm,’ the first track from the band’s forthcoming new album ‘Severance’ which is due for release on June 3rd (US) and June 13th (Europe) via Cruz Del Sur.

Guitarist Ade Mulgrew said: “It’s quite a dark song and probably reflective of how some of us saw the world around us when this album was being written. There was a lot going on in the band at the time and it certainly came out in the music. We also recorded it in the middle of winter against a backdrop that moved from being immensely beautiful on the rare occasions when the sun shined, to very bleak and desolate when the clouds rolled in. That definitely helped shape the vibe on this song. We’re looking forward to letting people finally hear it.

‘Severance’ will be released on June 13th in Europe and June 3rd in the US on Compact Disc/ Vinyl / Digital.

The track listing is as follows:
1.Sorrow’s Boundless Realm

2.Songs Of Gods And Men

3.The Serpent And The Shadow

4.Beyond The Grey Veil

5.Trapped In The Hourglass

6.The Scavenger

7.A Thousand Screaming Souls
