Abigail Williams Premiere New Song “I Will Depart”, Reveal Details For New Album “Walk Beyond The Dark”

Abigail Williams have premiered a new song titled “I Will Depart” via Metal Hammer. This track is from the band’s new album “Walk Beyond The Dark,” which will be released on November 15.

“Walk Beyond The Dark” Track Listing:

01. “I Will Depart”
02. “Sun and Moon”
03. “Ever So Bold”
04. “Black Waves”
05. “Into the Sleep”
06. “Born of Nothing”
07. “The Final Failure”

The following was said about the new album:

“Abigail Williams returns with their boldest and most diverse offering to date.

‘Walk Beyond the Dark’ summarizes the band’s previous experiments into one defining statement.

The album deftly wields the forces of light and dark in skilled measure. Icy guitars and bleak atmospheres encircle. String accompaniments burst into rapture. Powerful guitars shift between slithering rhythms and all-out assaults.

The grandiosity of the band’s debut album arrives via intricate string accompaniments. The raw fury of their sophomore effort pummels. A sense of space and clarity evokes the band’s third album. And the gritty darkness and progressive oddity evoke the fourth.

‘Walk Beyond the Dark’ melds all previous efforts into an undeniable force, elevating the result to the next level.

Abigail Williams take their rightful crown as the lords of American black metal.

The melancholic futility of despair. Surrender to the mysterious void.”

Hideous Divinity Premiere “The Embalmer” Music Video

Hideous Divinity have premiered a new video for their new song “The Embalmer.” That track is from the band’s new album “Simulacrum,” which will be released on November 8. The clip was created by contemporary performance artist Olivier De Sagazan.

Enrico Schettino commented:

“Perhaps more than any other song on ‘Simulacrum,’ ‘The Embalmer’ represents the new path in front of Hideous Divinity. We knew it was time for ‘not just a videoclip’. Something more was needed. When Olivier accepted our proposal and came out with the script, the whole thing hit us like a train wreck. We found the Embalmer. With his art, he created a nightmare and invited us into it: half covered in clay, standing like powerless statues, soon we understood to be in the hands of a maniac. Olivier De Sagazan came and embalmed reality in a distorted image, creating a destabilizing simulacrum. You can see us, blind observers, watching the grotesque repetition as he replaces Stephanie on the surgical field. ‘Rise!’, he cried.”

“Simulacrum” Track Listing:

01. “Deleuzean Centuries”
02. “The Embalmer”

04. “Anamorphia Atto III”

Rob Halford (Judas Priest) To Release New Christmas Album “Celestial” In October, Premieres “Donner And Blitzen” Video

Rob Halford (Judas Priest) has announced that he will be releasing a new Christmas album titled “Celestial” on October 18. The effort will feature covers of traditional holiday songs, as well as four brand new tracks. An official video for the first single, “Donner And Blitzen,” can be seen below:

Halford said the following about the album:

“The great thing about heavy metal is it’s got these kinds of multiple dimensions. I think when you look at it from an outside point of view – if you’re not really familiar with the metal scene – it can look pretty intimidating. And it is a very strong, powerful experience. But it comes at different levels.

I think the music that we’ve made on ‘Celestial‘, for example, gives a display of that. Metal maniacs – as we call ourselves – are just as ready for the holidays as everybody else. And what we’ve tried to do with this music is to reach out to as many of those metal dimensions as we possibly can.”

He also added the following about the song:

“‘Donner And Blitzen‘ gets the snowball rolling for ‘Celestial‘ – a song full of excitement, love and hope. You can hear and feel the power of Christmas time – energy roarin’ with rockin’ reindeers haulin’!”

“Celestial” Track Listing:

01. “Celestial”
02. “Donner And Blitzen”
03. “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen”
04. “Away In A Manger”
05. “Morning Star”
06. “Deck The Halls”
07. “Joy To The World”
08. “O Little Town Of Bethlehem”
09. “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing”
10. “The First Noel”
11. “Good King Wenceslas”

In other news, Halford has also announced a signing event at the FYE Arizona Mills location in Tempe, AZ. That event will take place on October 19.
