Previously demoed on Bandcamp, Reverbnation and similar sites, “Whore’s Wings” has been completely re-recorded for the new album. The track shows a more dynamic and aggressive side of Apostle of Solitude’s sound, and together with the previously released track “Luna”, gives a better idea of what to expect from “Of Woe and Wounds”. Unlike many doom bands, Apostle of Solitude in fact prefers using a multifaceted approach which mixes their trademark granitic, oppressive sound with many other elements of traditional metal. In other words, you won’t just be doomed by Apostle of Solitude!
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.“
