Tue, May 14 2019: THIS GIFT IS A CURSE

Upcoming release: "A Throne of Ash"

Release date: Fri, Jun 14 2019, US Fri, Jun 14 2019

THIS GIFT IS A CURSE are now releasing the third new track, taken from the band's upcoming album 'A Throne of Ash', to be released via Season of Mist on June 14. The dark track "Monuments for Dead Gods" can now be viewed via Invisible Oranges at the link below.


The band comments on the track:
"'Monuments for Dead Gods' is a dark sludge metal epos that pays homage to the inner destructive forces that seem to inhabit all humankind. A never-ending turmoil that both drives man and in the end, lead him to his inevitable doom. Both on a personal level and as a collective, the lyrics tell about a protagonist who finds himself falling in a complete darkness, not really knowing how or why he ended up there. He then performs a ritual to get free from this captive state, uttering ancient words into the abyss as well as carving old forbidden symbols into the framework of reality. Doing so manages to awake a dead star, creating a black hole and setting in motion the destruction of the world.

"'Life,' he learns, was just a great mirage set inside a cold and crumbling inner universe. The 'dead gods' in this story are the former truths that ruled his life. Among the shattered ruins of his own mind and as everything he knows is breaking apart by the seams, he can finally see it clearly; there is no big truths nor lies, there is no end nor beginning – only a great void as we go into oblivion. The song and its underlying storyline is beautifully interpreted with great passion and perceptiveness by visual artist / video maker Chariot of Black Moth."

The artwork and track-list for 'A Throne of Ash' can be viewed below.

Tue, May 14 2019: DEATHWHITE

Latest release: "For a Black Tomorrow"

Release date: Fri, Feb 23 2018, US Fri, Feb 23 2018

Enigmatic dark metal outfit DEATHWHITE have entered the studio to record their sophomore full-length, 'Grave Image'.


The music is being recorded at Cerebral Audio Productions with producer/engineer Shane Mayer, who also recorded the band's debut 'For A Black Tomorrow' while the vocals are being tracked at Erik Rutan's Mana Studios with Art Paiz serving as engineer. When all is said and done, 'Grave Image' will be mastered by Dan Swano,

Regarding the upcoming album, the band comments:

"We have spent the better part of the last six months fine-tuning and agonizing – for lack of a better term — over the ten new compositions that will comprise ‘Grave Image.’ We have been operating with the benefit of hindsight and perhaps, best of all, more familiarity with one other, which has led to songs that are heavier and superior to our previous efforts. While this may sound like typical pre-album release fodder, we believe it to be true considering the amount of time and effort we have poured into making 'Grave Image' a reality. We are also operating with an expanded lineup — a second guitar player has joined the fold, thus adding a new dimension to the guitar department and subsequently enhancing the DEATHWHITE sound.

We are grateful to once again be working alongside Shane Mayer for the album’s tracking — his attention to detail and meticulous nature is second-to-none. Due to new geographical realities, we will track vocals at Erik Rutan’s immaculate Mana Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida, with engineer Art Paiz overseeing the sessions. Once recording and mixing are complete, the album will be sent across the pond to the legendary Dan Swano for mastering, a gentleman we hold in infinite regard for past musical works and production acumen.

Additionally, we are in discussions for future live shows, something we’d like to do more of during the lead-up to 'Grave Image’s' eventual release. In the meantime, we will be working towards the album’s completion as well as finalizing its cover art, of which will be revealed at a later date."

DEATHWHITE’s debut album 'For A Black Tomorrow' is still available in the Season of Mist shop.
