Dutch blackened death doom outfit SOULBURN have announced they have completed their third studio record!
Titled, Earthless Pagan Spirit, the band have been hard at work working on their new opus in the two years since their last record, The Suffocating Darkness. The new album was recorded in The Netherlands at Harrow Studio as well as Double Noise Studio and then mixed and mastered by Magnus “Devo” Andersson at Endarker Studio Sweden (MARDUK, OFERMOD, etc.).
Speaking about the new record, bassist and vocalist Twan van Geel says, “SOULBURN’s Earthless Pagan Spirit marks the band’s third full-length album since the 1996 debut album Feeding On Angels. As people often say about a band’s third album is that it should show the bands ‘true’ face. Well, Earthless Pagan Spirit melts the rough elements of the past in perfect balance with the corrosive taste of the new. Showing a band who have set out a delicate blend of old-school breathing Black Metal that strengthens its venom with a poisonous twist of Doom and Death Metal. Where its predecessor The Suffocating Darkness already wandered, Earthless Pagan Spirit sets its sails further down the blackest of seas. Lyrically Earthless Pagan Spirit is breathing a Nietzschean storm upon this narrow minded religious plague this world is infested by. A serpent’s tongue spreading fear to some, yet a glorified temptation to others. Those who read between the lines may illuminate in its satanic glare and find new meaning in them.”
Alongside the announcement, the band have also revealed the album artwork for the upcoming record, which you can view below:
Earthless Pagan Spirit is set for release on November 18th via Century Media Records.
