Twilight's Embrace Set To Release New Death Doom Opus 'Penance'





Nottingham, UK doom trio Twilight's Embrace have emerged from the darkness to reveal details for their new record, and follow up to 2014's acclaimed debut By Darkness Undone.

"After a couple of years that saw some members leaving and little in the way of live performances, we decided an EP was a good way to ease back into things and to let people know we're still alive, comments band leader and guitarist Ben Sizer. "Musically, the new tracks deliberately continue the path of previous releases, attempting to take classic doom-death recipes and add other influences to taste."


Entitled Penance, the self-produced EP is set for release 23rd February and spans 4 epic death doom soundscapes, reminiscent of genre pioneers including Katatonia, November's Doom, Agalloch, Insomnium, Primordial, and more. There is also a not so subtle hint towards Paradise Lost, with a cover of 'It's Too Late' from 1999's Host.

"For Twilight's Embrace to cover a Paradise Lost song is a natural move, given the classic Peaceville act's obvious influence on the band. But by picking a softer song from the largely electronic album, there was both a greater opportunity to both put Twilight's Embrace's personal stamp on it, and maybe give fans a taste of what Paradise Lost might have sounded like in those days had they not gone so deeply into the lands of synthesisers."






Penance will be available on CD and on all major download and streaming platforms and is available to pre-order here: https://twilightsembrace.bandcamp.com/

1. Dying Earth

The trio have been hard at work since, creating their anticipated debut album 'This Is The Sound' which was released June 30th via Nuclear Blast Records and have impressed fans and press alike with their fresh and unique sound which has been dubbed as "the new wave of folk rock“.

REVIEW: Spreading The Disease - Insurrection

Modern metal quartet Spreading The Disease from Kent, UK formed in 2014 and then earlier this year in September 2017 they finally unleased their debut album ‘Insurrection’ which shows they are ready to infect metalheads and critics alike with their no-nonsense sounds…
Opening song ‘Find My Path’ starts with a melodic and resonant intro before fierce vocals come in with hard-hitting heavy guitars, it then goes on to feature an effective stripped back section towards the end which gives it extra depth. This is a powerful and strong start to the album.
‘Words Unspoken’ is a thumping tune with great rhythms and is very headbang worthy and incredibly catchy, keeping up the momentum is self-named track ‘Spreading The Disease’ which immediately pulls you in with catchy melodies and is all consuming with mighty riffs and a massive aggressive sound.
Latest single ‘Greed’ is frantic and driven and features some of the best guitarwork so far and again is very belligerent and is bound to get the mos…
