Black/Death metal band DUNKELNACHT will release their last EP, “Sombre nuit”, on 16 MAY 2022 via Non Serviam Records. The band went back on its roots, re-recording 4 songs of their first full-length “Atheist Dezekration” (M&O Music, 2010)!
For the past two decades Heimdall & Alkhemohr have been playing Black/Death metal in various representations. They share a great passion for the extreme genres and that’s what keeps them moving forward as a project. They strive to create an extreme music that they want to listen to. Fast, brutal, aggressive yet melodic with lyrics focusing on a relentless anti-monotheism manifesto, “Sombre nuit” represents the perfect mix between hatred, revulsion & hope. The band spreads its message through their native tongue: French. This EP is a tribute to one of the true origins of extreme music as well.
The 2022 EP “Sombre nuit” track listing reads as follows:
- Les ailes clouées du sionisme
- Étau chrétien
- L’antichambre des âmes torturées (Acoustique)
“Weaponize the wisdom, convert the passive as an ally. Don’t be nostalgic for anything and then… disappear. Stay there for a lifetime, huddled in the shadows. At last, reborn.
We are no longer the same, the spirit forged by the scars. Eloquence, on the other hand, remains close to the most pure convictions. This dark night (“Sombre nuit”) inspires us, our spirits heat up and the corpus stirs in creative form. So here is the light…
And it is upon reading these words that our opponents begin to tremble, because they know very well that, behind the conflagration, we are back.”
DunkelNacht was formed in 2004/2005 (Lille/France) by Heimdall (guitar, music, programming, mix) as one-man-band project, joined later in 2007 by bassist/lyricist Alkhemohr. The combo went through several line-up changes but kept their flame alive and toured in EU, Russia & UK supporting acts like Belphegor, Gorgoroth, Entombed AD… Despite the musicians moving forward in their art/discography, they plan to evolve/grow their dynamic Black/Death Metal; however this “off-track” EP is necessary and gives the songs back a better well-deserved production. In 2020, amist the COVID-19 pandemic, Heimdall re-located to Canada, the group recorded their last single with former main vocalist M.C. Abagor entitled “Biss Der Engel”.
