Dark Sky Burial, the ambient project featuring Napalm Death bassist Shane Embury, have premiered a new video for their new song “Mind Rat.” This track is from the band’s new album “Omnis Cum In Tenebris Praesertim Vita Laboret,” which will be released on December 10.
Embury said the following about the song:
“This video concept in some ways portrays how i feel on my weekends alone in the studio! at times i feel i gather energy around me to create the music – Mind Rat in particular reflects the darkest part of me that yearns to take control – i have spent my whole life trying to keep the demon inside – it’s now time to make friends…”
He also added the following about the album:
“This is the 4th album and closing chapter to the first Phase of the Dark Sky Burial Journey
composing these tracks has been for me very soul searching – at times the sounds seem to me reflections of my personality or rather different shades of myself, especially over the past 2 years where my worlds collided and I didn’t really know where to turn and the obvious be came blurred
composing this album like the other albums was done mainly at my home studio in Birmingham – I would lock myself away like a hermit for weekends and at intervals record pieces of music and add layers
‘The Heart Warrior‘ is an interesting track as its beginnings go back as far as the first album but as the track eventually developed the end result really came from how I felt emotionally that day as I finished it !
there’s something special about taking time to develop ideas – Dark Sky Burial is very much me laid bare
The timing of all these events can surly not be a coincide!
something from within. is wanting to be heard so perhaps I can be content towards the end of life journeys !
I hope you hear something within that echoes perhaps your thoughts and reflections as we enter a different version of the world we thought we knew
