Dutch Blackened Death Doom Metallers SOULBURN have announced the completion of their new, third studio album release, to be entitled "Earthless Pagan Spirit", for a release on November 18th via Century Media Records.
Following up 2014’s "The Suffocating Darkness", the new album was recorded in The Netherlands at Harrow Studio as well as Double Noise Studio and then mixed and mastered by Magnus "Devo" Andersson at Endarker Studio Sweden (Marduk, Ofermod). The album’s cover artwork can be seen below.
SOULBURN vocalist and bassist Twan van Geel checked in with the following comment about the upcoming release:
"SOULBURN’s "Earthless Pagan Spirit" marks the band’s third full-length album since the 1996 debut album "Feeding On Angels". As people often say about a band’s third album is that it should show the bands ‘true’ face. Well, "Earthless Pagan Spirit" melts the rough elements of the past in perfect balance with the corrosive taste of the new. Showing a band who have set out a delicate blend of old-school breathing Black Metal that strengthens its venom with a poisonous twist of Doom and Death Metal. Where its predecessor "The Suffocating Darkness" already wandered, "Earthless Pagan Spirit" sets its sails further down the blackest of seas. Lyrically. "Earthless Pagan Spirit" is breathing a Nietzschean storm upon this narrow minded religious plague this world is infested by. A serpent’s tongue spreading fear to some, yet a glorified temptation to others. Those who read between the lines may illuminate in its satanic glare and find new meaning in them.”
