Swedish black metal masters DARK FUNERAL release the second single, “Nightfall,” from their highly anticipated seventh album We Are The Apocalypse, which will be released on March 18th, 2022 via Century Media Records. While the first single “Let The Devil In” was an introvert journey, contemplating the darkness within, “Nightfall” is the diametral opposite. “Nightfall” is a display of blistering fury, invoking the seven witches, Lamashtu, to bring forth the eternal night. Watch the video, filmed, directed and edited by Grupa13, below.
“With ‘Nightfall,’ we continue to push the boundaries and go faster than anything we have ever done before. I wanted to create the feeling of levitating above the soundscape and into my own dark and twisted world. At this speed, it was also a challenge to find a good balance and dynamic where melodies and atmosphere did not disappear in a noise, but I think we really nailed it! ‘Nightfall’ gives epic a whole new meaning. Enjoy,” Lord Ahriman states about the track.
Heljarmadr adds, “Sometimes I am quite glad that I am not a drummer. I think Jalomaah outdid himself here and it was like standing in a wind tunnel when we recorded it in the studio. But through all the high tempo hammering shines great detail and I think this song has a lot of dynamics. I’m eagerly looking forward to seeing the crowd chant ‘Nightfall’ the day we bring it to the stage.”
On March 18th, DARK FUNERAL will release their long-awaited seventh full-length album We Are The Apocalypse (Century Media Records / Sony Music Sweden). On the same day, the band invites all fans to the Sound Pollution Store in Stockholm for a signing session and meet and greet. The following day, March 19th, they will be in Gothenburg and Bengan’s Record Store to do the same.
