NACHTBLUT - Presents Another Single And Video From Forthcoming Album

German dark/gothic metallers Nachtblut released the second single "Leierkinder" (engl. Children Of The Lyre), taken from their forthcoming album entitled Vanitas, scheduled to be out on 2nd October via Napalm Records. The band also released a music video for it and you can watch it in the player below.

Starting off with an intoxicating, folk-influenced melody and an addictive rhythm, the new single  carries its listener to days of yore, while the dark lyrics create a cynical contrast that shapes the overall ambience. Lyrically, the song refers to a fictional village reigned by a god who dictates the citizen's state of knowledge. Paired with the fleet-footed, folky main melody and Askeroth's gloomy, invading vocals, the new single "Leierkinder" sends frightening shivers straight to everyone's core!

Nachtblut on their new single: "We are more than proud to present our new song "Leierkinder": the catchy melody and chorus features a driving force, that will cause a lot of energy in front and on stage. But there is more than just a happy melody, as the lyrics come with a deeper meaning. It's about how you define happiness referred to your personal surroundings and experience. Another issue concerns our understanding of satisfaction and our perception of things, which is also controlled by significant outside influences. Maybe you will take a pause and think about this... or not, but "jeder muss nach dem Liede tanzen, das gerade auf der Walze steht" (engl.: "everyone needs to dance to the tune on the roller")."

The new album Vanitas draws the listener into the band's musical maelstrom in a classifying Nachtblut manner. More album details and previously unveiled first single "Das Puppenhaus" can be checked out over HERE. Link
