Darkwoods My Betrothed Premiere New Song “Black Fog And Poison Wind”

Darkwoods My Betrothed (Nightwish, etc.) have premiered a new song titled “Black Fog And Poison Wind.” This track is from the band’s new album “Angel Of Carnage Unleashed,” which will be on November 12. The group commented:

“This is one of our favourite songs from the new album. Lyrically, it tells the story of the so-called ‘Death March of the Carolinians’ where 3000 soldiers of the Swedish army froze to death when withdrawing from Norway across the fells in the winter of 1718. We chose to approach this topic from an anthropomorphic perspective: the storyteller is the poisonous icy wind which — in the service of the Angel of Carnage — mercilessly murdered the soldiers in the snowy mountains. The story is accompanied with a black metal anthem that combines brutal blastbeat-driven passages with slower and melodic eerie parts featuring choirs and female vocals. We feel that the song captures the atmosphere of the lyric perfectly.”
