Today we premiere the video for Danish death metal band Shadowspawn’s new single.
After announcing their new album “Blasphemica – Absolution Carved From Flesh” for an October release and having already revealed the first single of the album (“Bonesong”), Danish death metal unit Shadowspawn is now back with the second song from the record, both in digital single and lyric video formats.
The new digital single “Color Me Dead” is tied, lyrically, to the same claustrophobic feeling of “Bonesong”. Both groovy and aggressive, “Color Me Dead” also builds up an afflictive dark atmosphere of horror. No hope – only bleak feelings and heavy thoughts.
Shadowspawn is back with their highly anticipated fourth release, “Blasphemica – Absolution Carved From Flesh”. The new album from the Danes demonstrates the band’s growth and evolution, while still retaining their signature no-frills-death-metal sound. However, “Blasphemica” walks the extra mile for the band and pushes the boundaries of their musicality, incorporating elements of groove, darkness, and brutality into a cohesive whole. The album showcases the band’s maturity as songwriters and their ability to craft intricate, yet headbanging-worthy compositions.
With ten groovy death metal tracks, set in an abstract lyrical world of steampunk and religious criticism in the pocket, the band visited Tue Madsen at the renowned Antfarm Studios, for drum recording and, later, for mixing and mastering, ensuring the best possible sound for their new opus. This will be also Shadowspawn first album with their new drummer Lukas Meier, known from The Petulant and Sacrificial. In addition to Lukas, the band line-up consists of Bue T. Jensen (vocals), Nicolai Cheung (guitar), Oliver Ragnar (guitar) and Kelvin Dam (bass).
Known for their unique blend of groovy and intense soundscapes, Shadowspawn was formed in 2013 by experienced men from the early Danish death metal scene, including well-known forces from, among others, Sacrificial, The Petulant and Cinerator. With their distinct approach to the genre, they have carved a path for themselves in the extreme music scene. From the bands emerging, and with three highly praised releases already, Shadowspawn is a well-known act in the domestic metal scene, as well as abroad.
“Blasphemica – Absolution Carved From Flesh” will be released on LP (black vinyl, limited to 300) and digital formats via Emanzipation Productions on October 27th, 2023.
