STORMRULER - Reveals Scorching New Track And Its Lyric Video

  • Print

The USA fast-rising black metal export Stormruler will release their infernal, fantasy battle-inspired full-length debut offering, Under The Burning Eclipse, this Friday, 28 May via Napalm Records, and are gracing fans with a special early surprise - a brand new lyric video for the track "At The Cliffs Of Azure City". Combat-ready standout "At The Cliffs Of Azure City" proves exactly why Stormruler has turned heads in the underground with their grim attack. The track incorporates ruminations of classic heavy metal combined with scorched, war-torn percussion to create a blackened offering for the modern age. Stormruler says about the track: "'At The Cliffs Of Azure City' is a track that demonstrates a bit of an off-kilter approach, with the first riff in 5/4 and a bridge section that has a traditional heavy metal feel. Lyrically it describes a city under siege by a powerful sorceress and her army of mages."

Stormruler – featuring the dark lyrical genius and deft skill of guitarist/vocalist Jason Asberry and drummer Jesse Schobel – have built a noteworthy subterranean following since their formation, leading to their recent signing with Napalm Records. Combining unrelenting black metal atmosphere and vision from varying metal genres with a brutal, modernized twist of inspiration, careful listeners may just be able to identify themes from some of their favourite stories, games and more... Featuring 19 tracks alternating between ominous instrumental ambience and incendiary black metal riffs and fury, The Burning Eclipse album tells harrowing tales of war, death, victory and defeat, and delivers an unmatched, hellscape auditory experience.
