Darkest Era: Severance

Celtic metal band DARKEST ERA have released a new video for the track ‘Beyond the Grey Veil’ on the same day that the band’s new album, Severance receives its European release via Cruz Del Sur. The video can be seen HERE.

Speaking about the new video, Guitarist Ade Mulgrew said:
“‘Beyond the Grey Veil’ is the thematic centerpiece of the album. All roads lead to that song in some ways and it’s pretty representative of the kind of atmosphere we wanted to conjure up on Severance. Even Costin Chioreanu based the album artwork on it. The video was directed by Angus Mitchell, an extremely talented guy who was instantly on the same page as us in terms of the aesthetic we wanted to achieve.”

Already receiving positive reviews worldwide, Severance is streaming in its entirety here:

Since their formation in 2005, DARKEST ERA have progressed their special and original ‘Celtic Heavy Metal’ formula, with epic compositions influenced by the darker side of Irish folklore as well as the classic, double twin-guitar dueling of bands like Thin Lizzy and Iron Maiden. The new album shows more of this perfectly balanced formula with a more reflective spirit than in the past, but maintaining the untouched energetic vibe that has been the main characteristic of the band to date. The album was recorded at Data Recording Studios in Ballyheigue, Ireland and produced by Chris Fielding and Darkest Era. The artwork was created by Costin Chioreanu.
