Dark Sky Burial, the ambient project featuring Napalm Death bassist Shane Embury, will be playing their first live show at the Underworld in London, UK on September 12. The set, which will find Embury performing with Carl Stokes (Cancer) and John Cooke (Napalm Death), will also be livestreamed.
Napalm Death bassist Shane Embury has released a new album, titled “Quod Me Nutrit Me Destruit,” from his ambient project Dark Sky Burial. Fans can purchase that on Bandcamp. With this news, Embury has also shared a new video for “The Vertical Labyrinth” off the effort. You can check that out below. Embury said the following about the new record and video:
“This is the second album in a planned Quadrilogy – the title loosely translate to what nourishes me will destroy me! this can mean I suppose many things but perhaps how well we suffer a term I recently heard and makes a lot of sense to me right now. The Vertical Labyrinth Video was again put together by Chariot of the black moth – I am so happy with the result.”
Napalm Death bassist Shane Embury has released a new song, titled “Omisoka,” from his ambient project Dark Sky Burial. Fans can purchase the track on Bandcamp. Embury commented:
“This track is called Omisoka which translates I hope into “Last great day” it was conceived as a sort of Christmas Day theme of mine but then morphed into an end of year theme hence the title. 2020 as we all know has been a bizarre year, for Me I have managed to keep reasonably sane by immersing myself into creating music… In part this composition is my own way of sending love and thanking my family and my friends for putting up with me as I continue to take life’s rocky roller coaster ride and lastly to the followers and fans of Dark Sky Burial who have supported me so far I cannot thank you enough.”
Napalm Death bassist Shane Embury has premiered a new video for “De Omnibus Dubitandum Est” from his ambient project Dark Sky Burial. That song is the title track of the band’s debut album, which was released earlier this year. On another note, Embury has also confirmed that he is already working on a follow-up:
“I am really happy with the response so far to the project and it really means a lot to me. This year has been tough on all of us but also a definitive inspiration for my second album, which I have already finished and just need to mix. The title for the second DSB album is called ‘Quod me nutrit me destruit‘, which translates to what nourishes me, destroys me.”
Napalm Death bassist Shane Embury has launched a new ambient project called Dark Sky Burial. The band’s debut album “De Omnibus Dubitandum Est” was released today (April 7).
Embury told Decibel the following:
“I have been forming the ideas for DSB for a few years now and being a lover of all music that’s ‘out there. As a huge retro horror/sci-fi movie fan, I envisioned DSB as an inevitable and natural progression for me as a composer.”
“It’s my first step on a different path but with the help of my longtime music partner Russ Russell, who mastered the album and added some amazing ambience. I hope some people will find a connection to it and follow me as I embark on this new sonic expedition.”
“The tracks are a strange sort of therapy for me. My mind is relentless and escapist at the best of times. And it’s times like these now in the world that listening back that this album seems like a suitable soundtrack—a chance to sever reality here and there for just a little while is always needed.”
