Our new album 'Descent Into Genocide' will be released by Candlelight records in July.
Recorded and produced by Danny B (Lock Up/Pentagram/Criminal) 'Descent Into Genocide' (The title track inspired by the Babi Yar massacre of 1941) follows on directly from 'Blood On Snow' in its brutal intent while expanding the band’s musical and lyrical range to include varying vocal styles, musical instruments and a guest vocal performance from Zingultus (vocalist of Endstille) to produce their most visceral and heartfelt release to date. Eastern Front formed in October 2006 with a view to taking a new approach to Black Metal, which has been subsequently been labelled “War-Torn Black Metal”.
Musically, they retain a traditional Black Metal sound while encompassing elements of Doom, Death, folk and classical to create an atmosphere deemed essential when exploring the history of WWII, through music. Writing from a historically, subjective and personal standpoint, each track evokes an emotional experiences of battle, encompassing hope, pride, comradeship, misery, sorrow and victory. After 3 years of touring and building a loyal fan base Eastern Front signed to Candlelight Records in 2010 and released their debut album ‘Blood On Snow’ in September that year.
The first chance to hear live tracks from the new album will be July 26 at The Black Heart, Camden for the ‘Descent Into Genocide’ album launch show. All details are on the Facebook event page. Support comes from fellow Candlelight Records act Ethereal, among others.
Speaking on the forthcoming release founding member Holocaust stated: "It's been a very arduous battle, with many losses on the frontlines to get this mission completed but with a reinforced group and supply of much heavier artillery, this album has progressed extremely well from the debut and has a lot more heart and soul from all the members within it. Everything on this album strikes with more brutality, misery and depth and we are extremely happy to finally be unleashing these songs to the world via our comrades at Candlelight."
The tracklist for 'Descent Into Genocide' is:
The Hanging Of Faith
Descent Into Genocide
Die Reise in Den Tod Pt. 1
Ghouls Of Leningrad
In Memory Of The Fallen
