ABDUCTION have announced a new album!
Titled Black Blood, the upcoming album from the UK black metal band is the follow-up to 2019’s All Pain As Penance, and is scheduled to be released in October this year, via Candlelight Records.
The upcoming album was recorded by Ian Boult at Stuck On A Name Studios in Nottingham, this nightmarish yet entrancing listen intends to push ABDUCTION into new territories without straying from their core sound. Their distinctive qualities have also earnt them a place on the roster of one of extreme metal’s most famous labels, Candlelight Records, a definite milestone.
Speaking about being with Candlelight, band mastermind A|V says, “before this album was recorded, I knew I wanted to step things up a few notches in terms of taking this vision to a wider audience. Candlelight approached me – indirectly, as they didn’t know who I was behind the mask – and offered a deal that more than meets where I want to take this project. Rather than continue to exist in the well-established sphere I’ve grown comfortable in, I decided that now is the time to take a leap into the unknown. Much like the narratives of the songs, there is both trepidation and elation. Time will be the judge…”
Alongside the announcement of the new album, the band have released a new music video for a new song lifted from the upcoming album; Kernos Crown. Speaking about the new song, the band says, “Black Blood is an affirmation of the path that strives towards the balance of chaos and order in an era of disjointed and deliberate distraction. With Kernos Crown, the first track on Black Blood, there is an acceptance of all that is malevolent in the struggle for sleep. The necessity of the darkness and the imperative process that overcomes horrors and demons, by exalting and joining them at the altar of wisdom. To face death and no longer be afraid.”
