Dark Sky Burial (Napalm Death) Premiere New Song “Decay Is The Matrix Of Fertility”

Napalm Death’s Shane Embury has shared a new song, titled “Decay Is The Matrix Of Fertility,” from his Dark Sky Burial project. He said the following about that:

“I thought it only Apt on new years eve to once again share a Brand new free download track to those who have helped me thru some trying times and another year in the Labyrinth. A thank you again as we enter 2022. The title of this track for me symbolises the Hopeful Death of old habits – Whatever they maybe – the cutting away of dead wood in the hope of further growth towards the light – looking forwards not backwards! As a last minute thought I asked Tom Dring Of Corrupt Moral Altar to add some saxophone – I love Saxophone! which has given the track more atmosphere and me further thoughts (Like I don’t already think enough) on what will come next on future recordings. Again assisted my Kindred spiritual Brother Russ Russell Love to him and His family on this day especially x”

Dark Sky Burial Premiere “Mind Rat” Video

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

thank you”

“With the COVID 19 pandemic sweeping the globe last year suddenly there was an opening for me to finally take my ideas for DSB and make them a reality – I had been recording loops of music and sounds whilst being on tour for a few years – being away from my family and becoming older life was changing and my quest for making different types of music was constantly expanding through the other different types of projects I was working on. How we deal with the challenges of life and pressure is a concept that runs deep in theme through these albums. To face our shadow and establish balance is a quest for all of us – a perilous journey we can choose or not choose to face – the outcome who knows.”

Napalm Death’s Shane Embury Launches New Project Dark Sky Burial

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.”

He continued:

“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.”
