Black Metallers CREST OF DARKNESS, whose founder and frontman Ingar Amlien is an acknowledged expert on Vampirism and the Occult, and who is often called upon by the Norwegian media to comment on such matters, are celebrating Halloween with the release of a lyric video for the track “The Noble Art”.

The video, directed and edited by Goffredo Passi for EstremArte videoproduzioni, features the  extraordinary zombie foetus sculptures created by the Italian artist Andrea Falaschi can be seen below and at https://youtu.be/mzwd_AWw8jY

Released in December 2016 on My Kingdom Music, “Welcome the Dead” is the perfect illustration of the kind of wide-ranging appeal that CREST OF DARKNESS has built for itself over the years, with a sound that encompasses the Black, Death and Metal genres.  It is, according to Amlien, an album that has special significance for him personally, having put a lot of himself and his deepest emotions into creating an album that reflects the kind of ritualistic atmosphere that pervades the band’s live performances.

CREST OF DARKNESS’ lineup of  Ingar Amlien (CONCEPTION, ROQUEFIRE,  AMLIEN’s INFERNO) on bass and vocals, Rebo on guitars, Bernhard (ex- PALE FOREST) on drums are now working on what will be their eighth full-length album, and more information about the band can be found at http://www.facebook.com/crestofdarknessofficial

“Welcome the Dead” was released on My Kingdom Music in both CD and Digital and a  double LP, which will feature a special bonus track, will be released shortly in collaboration with Metal Age Productions, Kristallblut Records and Supreme Music Creations.  It is available from all the usual retailers as well as direct from My Kingdom Music at http://smarturl.it/DEAD-CD in CD and 2LP formats and in digital format at http://smarturl.it/WELCOME-THE-DEAD.

Nine tracks tracing the history of CREST OF DARKNESS, can be heard on the band’s SoundCloud page at http://soundcloud.com/crest-of-darkness/sets/crest-of-darkness,  whilst the official playlist, which includes the  band’s entire catalogue can be heard on Spotify at https://open.spotify.com/user/patriciathomas/playlist/7hW4CvcmbBGGriJtJBryx5

With the their seventh full-length album “Welcome the Dead” released at the end of last year, and earning plaudits from fans and critics alike, veteran Norwegian Black Metallers CREST OF DARKNESS have uploaded a new video for a track from the album to their YouTube channel.   The track chosen for this video is “My Black Bride” which makes this a particularly unusual choice for the band, not only because it is an instrumental, something the band has only recorded on two occasions over the years, but it is also a melodic, deeply atmospheric piece, totally different from the band’s usual Black/Death/Metal sound.   The reasons for creating such an “out of character” piece are quite fascinating, and are explained below by the band’s founder and frontman  Ingar Amlien (CONCPTION, ROQUEFIRE,  AMLIEN’s INFERNO).  The video itself can be seen below and at https://youtu.be/niPFDtJgpC4


x
According to Amlien “My Black Bride” was written for his wife Laila, who wore a black wedding dress when the couple married over ten years ago.    “I had wanted to write a special song for Laila for a long time.  She has supported me and my work for so many years, and without her I really don’t know where I would be today, and I  knew right from the start that if I was to create this piece it would have to be totally honest.  Something personal, and not the kind of rose-tinted love song that people tend to expect when you write a song dedicated to the love of your life.

“I tried to capture the feeling of romance and happiness, but at the same time I wanted to touch on something more “forbidden” – the dark side if you like to think of it like that.  Like most couples we have been through many experiences in the time we’ve shared together, both good and bad. But, unlike most couples, my work has always involved being “in touch” with both Life and Death, something  Laila has always been very aware of, so the difficult times take on a darker significance.

“I also knew that this song had to be an instrumental because words could not possibly express what I was trying to communicate with this song.  I played the guitars myself – I felt I had to as these few notes I’m playing are so extremely personal.   To the listener the song may sound like a simple, stripped down piece of music, which is what I intended it to be, but it comes from the depth of my heart ands contains many small details that someone outside of the relationship I have with my wife cannot understand.  It’s a heartbreaking piece, but as with all my music, there is something deeper behind it.  There is my belief that inside all of us there burns a black flame – that special will to survive”.

The video itself was created and edited by Francesco Palumbo at MKM Graphix, using images from the Cappuccin Catacombs in Palermo, Italy, and, given that “My Black Bride” is essentially a romantic piece, the choice of such macabre images might seem strange.  “When I first saw the video I almost choked” admitted Amlien.  “The images were right for CREST OF DARKNESS, but I was a little taken aback at first.  However, the more I looked at it, the more I realised that they were, in fact, perfect”.

“Welcome the Dead” was released on My Kingdom Music in both CD and Digital formats at the end of last year.  A double LP format, which will feature a special bonus track, will be released shortly in collaboration with Metal Age Productions, Kristallblut Records and Supreme Music Creations.  Artwork for the album features  the strange and disturbing Zombie Foetus sculptures created by the Italian artist Andrea Falaschi.

With the release date for CREST OF DARKNESS’ seventh full-length album “Welcome the Dead” having been brought forward to the 25th November, the band has released a video for the title track.  Directed by Anders Børresen for MONITORmeda, the video for “Welcome the Dead” can be seen below and on CREST OF DARKNESS’  YouTube channel at https://youtu.be/4jxLXUPRLyI


x
Commenting on the video, founder and frontman Ingar Amlien had this to say: “We wanted to make a video that offers a glimpse into the dark world of CREST OF DARKNESS.  Perhaps we are just story tellers recounting a fairytale,  and the video can certainly be viewed and enjoyed at that level, but we are also  touching on aspects of Life itself and those eternal questions that people ask themselves about life and death and the meaning of it all.

“We might not have all the answers, and in all honesty we don’t even want to pretend that we do, but what we do want is to make people think for themselves, and find their own answers .  Let’s face it, we are all Gods.  Each of us builds their own universe, and it just happens that the world of CREST OF DARKNESS is my universe”.

Recorded at the at MLP Studio by Nils H. Mæhlum, and mastered at the Kvålsonic Lab by Tom Kvålsvoll, the nine-track album promises to be the heaviest, darkest and most introspective album in the band’s twenty plus year history.    It will be released on My Kingdom Music in both CD and Digital formats, as well as a double LP format which will feature a special bonus track.

With artwork that features  the strange and disturbing Zombie Foetus sculptures created by the Italian artist Andrea Falaschi, tracklisting on “Welcome the Dead” is as follows:

1. Welcome The Dead
2. Chosen By The Devil
3. Scourged And Crucified
4. My Black Bride
5. Borrowed Life
6. The Almighty
7. Memento Mori
8. The Noble Art
9. Katharsis

crest-of-darkness-albumartpr

“Welcome the Dead” includes a guest appearance  by Norwegian actor Espen Reboli Bjerke, well known for his extensive work in films, theatre, radio and Television.  Bjerke, who also won a Spelleman Award, the Norwegian equivalent of the Grammies, performs the  spoken part on “Katharsis”,  the closing track on the album.

crest-of-darkness-reboli-pr2

Amlien, whose illustrious musical history started with the legendary CONCPTION, and includes  ROQUEFIRE and  AMLIEN’s INFERNO,  confirms that “Welcome the Dead” has a particular significance for him:  ” I’ve put a hell of a lot of myself and my emotions  into this album, even more so than usual.  I’ve always felt that when we are on stage, we create a sort of magic, and this time we have been able to transfer that magic to the recordings.  You could say this is my personal Black Mass”.

CREST OF DARKNESS’ lineup of  Amlien on bass and vocals, Rebo on guitars, Bernhard (ex- PALE FOREST) on drums, and Kristian Wentzel on keyboards,  will celebrate the release of “Welcome the Dead” with a show special Friday the 13th show at Retro in Raufoss, Norway in January.

“We really needed someone with a great vocal presence to do the spoken part on one of the tracks, someone who is able to convey the atmosphere”, explained CREST OF DARKNESS founder and frontman Ingar Amlien, “and as far as I was concerned Espen was perfect.  I was delighted when he agreed to do it, it’s never easy to get actors of his standing to agree to perform on a music album.  Of course it did help a bit that he is the brother of our guitarist Rebo!”

“Welcome the Dead”, is set to hit the streets on the 2nd December on My Kingdom Music  in both CD and Digital formats, as well as a double LP format which will feature a special bonus track.   It was recorded at the at MLP Studio by Nils H.

On Saturday 29th October Amlien will give a special performance at the Underjordisk Festival in Gjøvik.    The festival is closely linked with Halloween, and Amlien will take to the stage at midnight whenhe will perform a solo set called “Drink My Blood”, which will include music that is part of a bonus track which will be included on the vinyl edition of “Welcome the Dead”.   Amlien says that the audience should expect a sort of “bloody, horror kind of performance… like a ritual” and knowing the musicians interest in all things vampire and satanic, it’s safe to say that it will be very appropriate to the celebration of Halloween.

Crest of DarknessPR12Fav

Fans of Norway’s  CREST OF DARKNESS will have seen a short teaser video appear on Facebook this week showing frontman and founder Ingar Amlien signing what appears to be a contract, and today Italian label My Kingdom Music confirmed that it was indeed a new recording contract, and that the veteran Norwegian Extreme Metallers would be continuing their collaboration with the label for the release of their next album.  Commenting on the renewal of their long-standing relationship, which started thirteen years ago, My Kingdom Music had this to say:

“We are absolutely delighted to be able to continue with, and build on,  the strong relationship we have always had with CREST OF DARKNESS.  We first started working  together back in 2003, and we have watched the band develop its style and sound over the years, and we are very excited to be releasing their seventh full-length album towards the end of this year.  We have no doubts whatsoever that the new album will push the borders of their take on extreme metal to new limits.  CREST OF DARKNESS’ personal mix of Black, Thrash and Heavy Metal promises to make this the most mature and powerful album the band has ever released”.

Amlien himself gave some hints at what fans could expect from the album, as well as echoing the label’s sentiments about their working relationship: ” Over the years CREST OF DARKNESS and My Kingdom Music seem to have grown side by side, so I’m very happy to be able to continue working with a label that understands both our music and our vision, and with whom we have always been able to have an open and constructive dialogue.  Particularly as the new album is especially important to me as I’ve put a hell of a lot of myself and my emotions  into it.  I’ve always felt that when we are on stage, we create a sort of magic, and this time we have been able to transfer that magic to the recordings.  You could say this is my personal Black Mass.

“We are not going to reveal too much about the album at this stage except to say that it is currently being recorded at the MLP Studio with Nils Harald Mæhlum  at the helm.  We worked with Mæhlum on our first albums, and we recently got together again when we recorded last year’s “Evil Messiah” EP, and it felt natural so we decided to stick with him for the new album, and it’s proven to be a very good decision”.

The Frontschwein 2015 – EUROPA Part III tour will be the first time that the new CREST OF DARKNESS lineup will tour together.  Having appeared at various shows and festivals, the lineup, which comprises founder, frontman and bassist Ingar Amlien (ROQUEFIRE, CONCEPTION, AMLIEN’s INFERNO),  Rebo on guitars,  Bernhard (Ex- PALE FOREST) on drums and Kristian Wentzel  on keyboards, are more than ready to hit the road.
