DARKEST ERA - New video and full album stream
Darkest Era have released a new video for the track 'Beyond the Grey Veil' on the same day that the band's new album 'Severance' receives its European release via Cruz Del Sur.
Speaking about the new video, Guitarist Ade Mulgrew said: "Beyond the Grey Veil is the thematic centrepiece of the album. All roads lead to that song in some ways and it's pretty representative of the kind of atmosphere we wanted to conjure up on Severance. Even Costin Chioreanu based the album artwork on it. The video was directed by Angus Mitchell, an extremely talented guy who was instantly on the same page as us in terms of the aesthetic we wanted to achieve."
Already receiving positive reviews worldwide, the new Darkest Era album 'Severance' is now streaming in its entirety here: cruzdelsurmusic.bandcamp.com/album/severance-2
The album was recorded at Data Recording Studios in Ballyheigue, Ireland and produced by Chris Fielding and Darkest Era. The artwork was created by Costin Chioreanu.
DESECRATION premiere debut music video ‘Coffin Smasher’ exclusively with Terrorizer
Why is it that a band formed over 20 years ago that has toured in almost every corner of the globe and has released half a dozen albums; the controversial first ‘Gore & Perversion’ being banned immediately upon its release under the Obscene Publications Act leading to the bands arrest, has never made a music video? The answer… who cares? Because today ‘Welsh Death Metal Bastards’ Desecration unleash their debut video ‘Coffin Smasher’, taken from the forthcoming album ‘Cemetery Sickness’.
“We've thought about doing videos for songs in the past” stated the band. “We've sat down with people to bounce ideas across for storylines etc. but they've never amounted to anything. This time we knew it had to happen with everything being online these days. So we collared Adam Edgerley (drummer Mic and ‘Cemetery Sickness’ producer Joe Thompsons partners at Sonic Forge). We knew Adam would do a fantastic job, and also remain patient while we threw more and more challenging ideas at him. Fair play, we couldn't be happier with how it came out.”
Watch ‘Coffin Smasher’ exclusively at Terrorizer Magazine here:
"We chose this song for the video because every time we played it in the rehearsal rooms we knew it was a corker. The lyrical content meant that it was easy enough to think of a narrative for the video too, and we thought it was achievable whilst also being pretty daring.”
“The indoor performance shots were recorded in a church that our friend Chi from Spider Kitten owns up in the valleys, and the outdoor scenes we filmed... locally. I don't want to say much more there, as let's just say we weren't supposed to be there.”
“Shooting the video was exactly how you would expect digging a 6 foot hole in the pissing rain at night would be. We didn't want to cut any corners, so everything you see on the video actually happened.”

Guitarist Ade Mulgrew said: "It’s quite a dark song and probably reflective of how some of us saw the world around us when this album was being written. There was a lot going on in the band at the time and it certainly came out in the music. We also recorded it in the middle of winter against a backdrop that moved from being immensely beautiful on the rare occasions when the sun shined, to very bleak and desolate when the clouds rolled in. That definitely helped shape the vibe on this song. We’re looking forward to letting people finally hear it.”
