‘Look, Here Comes The Dark’, is not only the album name, but quite the fitting description for the song entitled ‘Silent at Last’.

Having a very dark, sinister, almost “suffocating” feel to the music, this song depicts a slow paced story of the suffering of mankind and of life itself. It leaves one with the impression of struggling to breathe, holding on with every last limb and a struggle to fight back.

Giving off an almost trance like feel, this song creates a calm melody with its guitars, bass and chant like, deep vocal screams and growls. This paired with the consistency of the drum beats make this a must listen!

End of times, the disappearance of all life from earth is told through the music without fail. Humankind now hunted and consumed by the nature they very well destroyed. In this haunting video humankind is conveyed as the animal being hunted rather than being the hunter. The hunter has become the hunted. The collaboration between the visual and the music was excellently done to convey the true story behind the music.

The album ‘Look, Here Comes The Dark” will be available from Pelagic Records on the 11th of May 2018. A double record with almost two full hours of music, a must have for those of us that enjoy the heavier side of music.
