“We chose this track as the third single taken from our new album ‘Viscera‘ due to it’s almost cinematic take on the internal and external conflict of existence. A transformational journey into the bloodshed and horror of the human condition.”

Strigoi (Paradise Lost, Vallenfyre) Premiere New Song “King Of All Terror”

Strigoi (Paradise Lost, Vallenfyre) have premiered a new song titled “King Of All Terror.” This track is from the band’s new album “Viscera,” which will be released on September 30. The group commented:

“‘King Of All Terror‘ highlights some of the more venomous urgency present on ‘Viscera‘. From all out blackened grind to sombre doom in less than 3 minutes. Lyrically, it navigates old testament vitriol, and the inherent hypocrisy of celestial hierarchy…. the worst of the worst.”

Strigoi (Paradise Lost, Vallenfyre) Premiere “Hollow” Music Video

Strigoi (Paradise Lost, Vallenfyre) have premiered a new video for their new song “Hollow.” This track is from the band’s new album “Viscera,” which will be released on September 30.

The group commented:

“We chose ‘Hollow” as the first video single as it lends itself perfectly to giving the listener a broad overview of ‘Viscera‘. It’s dark, brooding yet violent cinematic qualities allude to the delightful misery contained within the new album.

A scathing commentary on human weakness, we feel ‘Hollow‘ typifies the evolution of Strigoi, as a band and as a concept. It was also a perfect fit for the amazing videography work of Dehn Sora, who has presented a remarkable visual interpretation of the track.”

Strigoi (Paradise Lost, Ex-Vallenfyre) Premiere “Carved Into The Skin” Music Video

Strigoi (Paradise Lost, ex-Vallenfyre, etc.) have premiered a new video for their song “Carved Into The Skin.” This track is from the band’s debut album “Abandon All Faith,” which was released today (November 22).

Chris Casket commented:

“The production of the video was totally DIY including the ‘practical effects’ and filmed in studio and on location in Yorkshire, Suffolk and Milan. Initially, we wanted to gather background footage for a lyric video, but these sessions quickly escalated into a full video production, and the end result is a combination of performance, eerie locations, creeping insects and self mutilation.”

Greg Mackintosh added:

“This, the grimmest track on the album is about depression, despair and self-harm. Musical asphyxiation.”

Strigoi (Paradise Lost, Ex-Vallenfyre) Premiere New Song “Nocturnal Vermin”

Strigoi, the band featuring Greg Mackintosh (Paradise Lost) and his former Vallenfyre bandmate Chris Casket, have premiered a new song titled “Nocturnal Vermin.” This track is from their debut album “Abandon All Faith,” which will be released on November 22.

Mackintosh commented:

“‘Nocturnal Vermin‘ is a short and vicious little song that blends elements of grindcore and OSDM with industrial touches to create an overall nasty yet ominous feel. Lyrically it is about having the life drained out of you by other people purely out of malice and self interest, to the point where the mere thought of their skin and scent makes you want to be physically sick.”

In other news, the band have also recruited guitarist Sam Kelly-Wallace (Vallenfyre) and drummer Guido Zima Montanarini (The Secret) for live shows. Kelly-Wallace said the following about his new role:

“It is an absolute honor to be asked to play in Strigoi. I spent 5 years in Vallenfyre, it was an amazing experience and getting to be a part of Greg and Chris‘s grim new venture is something I am very grateful for. I’m really looking forward to taking Strigoi to the stage and performing alongside friends that I have a great musical history with and huge respect for.”

Montanarini added:

“I had the pleasure to meet Greg and Chris on a European tour supporting Vallenfyre with my previous band Implore, and we got along instantly. I’m flattered they asked me to join their new killer project and I’m excited our paths crossed again in this unexpected way. The new material sounds very dark and intense, and I can’t wait to hit the stage with my mates. It’s gonna be ace!”

Strigoi (Paradise Lost, Ex-Vallenfyre) Premiere “Phantoms” Music Video

Strigoi (Paradise Lost, Ex-Vallenfyre) Sign With Nuclear Blast

Strigoi, the band featuring Greg Mackintosh (Paradise Lost) and his former Vallenfyre bandmate Chris Casket, have signed a new deal with Nuclear Blast Records and are planning to release their debut album “Abandon All Faith” through the label on November 22. The effort was recorded at Mackintosh‘s Black Planet Studio and it features guest drummer Waltteri Väyrynen (Paradise Lost).

Mackintosh said the following about the new project:

“With Vallenfyre, we went down this path where it got more and more crusty. I thought we couldn’t take it any further, so I needed to put in some new elements. With Strigoi, there’s a bit of spookiness, even some subtle elements of industrial and even black metal. The goal was to switch it up a bit. I was perfectly content with what I was doing in Vallenfyre, but for Strigoi to stand on its own, I wanted to try new things to separate ourselves from the pack.”

A press release also added that the band’s name was taken from “the troubled spirits in Romanian mythology who could rise from the grave and assume an entirely different form.”
