Lyric-Video for 'Dawnlight Garden'

Follow Night In Gales into the “Dawnlight Garden” where the touch of the dark angel’s hand will separate spirit from life. The song is also the title track of their upcoming album and delivers a first glimpse of the new material by the German melodic death metal outfit while the lyric video allows a close look at the brilliant visual imagery that was crafted by Costin Chioreanu.



Details for 'Dawnlight Garden'

An ominous, red dyed horizon recalls ”Sylphlike”, “Towards The Twilight” or “The Last Sunsets” – the album that lead Night In Gales back to their roots. 2018 marked the return of their initial singer Christian Müller but the year also saw their rediscovered love for melodic death metal in its initial form, which they delivered with overwhelming enthusiasm and a noticeable (re)connection with their own history. “Dawnlight Garden” consistently continues this path and delivers even more multifaceted material which underlines the compositional sophistication of the band. The opener “Atrocity Kings” paves the way for “Beyond The Light” to really explode. But there is always enough space for groove (“Winterspawn”) and semi-acoustic passages (“Kingdom”). The rerecorded „A Spark In The Crimson Eclipse” looks back on the „Razor“-EP which was originally released in 1996 to create another highlight.

The character of the album is perfectly captured in the intense artwork by Costin Chioreanu (At The Gates, Arch Enemy…). While the horizon in the background is a nod to the band’s early days, the garden in the foreground symbolizes the here and the now with all its different aspects.

Night In Gales open the gates of their “Dawnlight Garden” on July 24th through Apostasy Records.



Details for 'Left Unburied'

Every band has a different way to find its own musical identity, to give certain elements a try and to think outside the box. After the recordings of their full-length-debut “Ekpyrosis (Periodic Destruction)”, Burial Vault had to face two line-up changes in 2010 and 2011. Although the band already started writing a concept album based on Ray Bradbury’s “Fahrenheit 451” (which was released as “Incedium” in 2013), the North Germans decided to do a little studio experiment. Within just a couple of weeks, they wanted to write and record three songs to capture as much of the spontaneity as possible. In order to prevent formulas that might have been part of their process after two EPs and the aforementioned album they used a different guitar-tuning and defined a different direction for each song: doom, (brutal) death metal and blackened thrash. They called it the “Left Unburied” sessions and the results were recorded at Soundlodge Studio with producer Jörg Uken (Anvil, God Dethroned, Dawn Of Disease, Sinister…). But it never felt right for Burial Vault to release them as bonus material for one of their albums. Nearly 10 years after they were recorded, the songs fit better than ever to the band’s style. The small experiments that made their way into the compositions also became a part of their sound. Now, these little gems find a way into the light of day in the form an online EP. And the artwork by Chris Kiesling (Misanthropic Art Illustrations) fits perfectly with the character of “Left Unburied”.



Lyric-Video for 'venoMutilation'

Today, Burial Vault unveil the lyric video for “venoMutilation”. It tells a tough story about a regular member of the working class that turns into a drug addict because there seems to be no other way but to work overtime to make ends meet. Jörg Harms (Black Vision Films) did a fantastic job in finding the right pictures to illustrate the lyrics. This song is taken off their forthcoming digital EP “Left Unburied” which features previously unreleased material by the melodic death metal outfit.

Apostasy Records, the band’s label home since its debut, is proud to release „Left Unburied” on May 15th online.

Video for 'Fatal Accident'

The Northern-German melodic death metal outfit Burial Vault decided to create a special gem in these days where everyone has to deal with the situation around the Coronavirus and the Covid-19-pandemic.

“We currently have to face circumstances which have never been seen before. A new type of virus confronts medical research with new challenges and forces us to take care of each other a lot more. The most important thing is to stay home so that the spread of the virus slows down.

To make these days at home a little more enjoyable, we went through our archives and found live-footage that was shot during the recordings of our video for “Awareness” from 2013’s “Incendium”. Together with Jörg Harms who initially helped us with this project back in those days, we finalized the video for “Fatal Accident” and we like to share this with you right now!

We will check our archives for further stuff. Maybe, we’ll find something more?! You are not alone. We’re in this together!
