Dutch symphonic metal band Blackbriar unveils the second single off of their upcoming debut full-lenght album “The Cause Of Shipwreck”. Listen to “Deadly Diminuendo” below.
After successfully releasing three EPs “Fractured Fairytales”, “We’d Rather Burn” and “Our Mortal Remains”, Blackbriar have chosen to continue the independent route. The band would like to take you into our fantastical gothic world bolstered by addictive hooks, magnificent arrangements, and dark beauty with their debut full-length release: “The time has come for us to give you our very first full-length album called “The Cause of Shipwreck”! We are filled with pride and excitement about how well the songs fit together on the album and we can’t wait to share them with you, but first, we are kindly asking for your support.”
With songs about primeval forces of nature, mythological creatures, bygone times, ghosts hoping to be noticed, darkness and love, “The Cause of Shipwreck” features 10 new songs and is scheduled for release on April 23.
“Deadly Diminuendo” is the second single from the album and the vocalist Zora Cock mentions mountains as the main source of inspiration for the song. She says: “I wrote it after I took a trip to the Alps and after reading Thomas Olde Heuvelt’s book ‘Echo’.” There’s also a music video on the way, and the band intends to shoot it as soon as possible: “The pandemic has made it difficult to film this specific idea we have in mind.” Meanwhile, listen to the audio:
