Finnish death/sludge unit Black Royal will unleash the debut album "Lightbringer" on March 9th via Suicide Records. Check out the first single and video clip for "Cryo Volcanic" in the player above.
A truly dense and obliterating offering both musically and thematically, the ten-track "Lightbringer" centers itself on mankind's utter failure in finding inner strength and the meaningless trust in fake ideologies. "Faith is, more or less, a consequence of fear and ignorance," elaborates the band. "Mankind's quest for meaning is greater than their ability to understand that we hold the key to our own potential and inner strength. This act against the original plan of The Elders and The Wise has led mankind to the brink of their own intellectual extinction. To survive, mankind must abandon the power of religious dogmas and evolve by the strength from one's inner self. Time has come for the 'Lightbringer' to enthrone and steer man back to the path of free thought and prove wrong their false choices (the reason for current global chaos). Now is time for the new world order. It won't be divine."
"Lightbringer" will see release on CD, LP, and digital formats, with preorders to be announced in the coming weeks.
