SONG PREMIERE: Ov Shadows - Under Dödens Vingar

Posted by Nick Skog on Tuesday, July 14, 2020 Under: Ov Shadows
Here is the first premiere from the forthcoming Ov Shadows album "I Djävulens Avbild", streaming  exclusively on No Clean Singing



"The title of the song is “Under Dödens Vingar” (Under the Wings of Death). Immediately, the music surrounds us with dense waves of tremolo’d riffing accompanied by enormous drum detonations and heavyweight bass pulsations. The music has a majestic but sorrowing resonance that immerses the senses, its wrenching gloom shredded by caustic shrieks and increasingly electrifying drum patterns.

As the vibrating chords rise and fall, their penetrating sounds seem to become manifestations of mourning and weeping, mounting in intensity and growing even more powerfully mesmerizing, with that effect counter-balanced by carefully-chosen dynamic changes in the drumming, whose nuances are well-worth focusing on in subsequent listens. The music really is spellbinding, and as it evolves, it gloriously soars in its expressions of grief-stricken agony, even as the blast-furnace vocals become a flame of pain. It’s an all-encompassing experience, wrapping us in its dark embrace, subsuming us in its lament, carrying us away in its crescendo beneath wings of death."

I Djävulens Avbild will be out August 14.
Pre-orders start next week!
