DREAD SOVEREIGN - Unveils First Details About Upcoming Album, New Video Released

Irish doom act Dread Sovereign revealed first details about the upcoming album entitled Alchemical Warfare and have launched video for the first single "Nature Is The Devil's Church". Alchemical Warfare is the third studio full-length for Dread Sovereign and will hit the stores on 15th January via MetalBlade Records.

Dread Sovereign was formed in Dublin, Ireland in 2013 by Primordial vocalist Nemtheanga to give praise to filthy cult old doom, black and heavy metal. Their first EP - 2013's Pray To The Devil In Man - came out on Roadburn/Burning World Records to coincide with the band's live debut. Soon after, two full-lengths were released by Van Records: All Hell's Martyrs (2014) and For Doom The Bell Tolls (2017).

Vocalist/bassist Nemtheanga explains: "Our motto when we started was 'The World is Doomed'…and it seems life is imitating art… as we are looking like filthy prophets! Several years in the making, the new Dread Sovereign is ready for the End of the World, which might be next year in case you didn't know! A bit more reckless and up-tempo than the previous releases, yet the template remains doom, Alchemical Warfare just has a bit more Venom and Motorhead thrown into the mix. If it's the end of days we might as well go out with middle fingers raised right?"

Since the pandemic began, Alan/Nemtheanga has also started a podcast, entitled 'Agitators Anonymous'. Well over 30 episodes with almost 75 000 listens, Agitators Anonymous is a mixture of tour stories, politics, the occult, culture, history, travel, black humour, special guests, deep dives into books, events, writers, and characters from the past - and of course, metal. Fans can listen to it at this location.

Now listen and watch to the video for Dread Sovereign's "Nature Is The Devil's Church". The band also unveiled the album cover artwork and tracklist. Link
