GRÀB - Announces A New Album And Releases The First Video Single

The Bavarian black metal outfit Gràb has released the track "Nachtkrapp" for which a sinister video has been dropped earlier this year as the first single taken from their forthcoming album Zeitlang (Yearning), which is slated for release on 1 October via Trollmusic. The band also reveals cover art, tracklist, and further details of their harsh full-length. All information awaits you below, as well as the "Nachtkrapp" video (again).

Gràb, which means "old and grey", is lyrically following this tradition by telling the story of an old man, who has chosen to withdraw from society into an isolated cottage deep in the mountains, where he reflects on his life while his death edges ever closer. The story on Zeitlang begins in his early childhood with the song "Nachtkrapp" (Night Raven) and continues all the way to his end, which is illuminated by the track "A Gråbliacht" (A Grave Lantern).
Musically, Gràb is picking up the Norwegian strands of early Gehenna, Ulver, and Darkthrone as well as being inspired by German Nagelfar and Lunar Aurora. Yet true to their topic, the Bavarians include traditional local elements, which is instrumentally expressed by the use of hammered dulcimer, zither and alphorn.

Zeitlang is the band's harsh debut full-length, featuring founding vocalist Grant. The former Dark Fortress frontman has written the entire concept album in a local dialect of Germany's southernmost Alpine state. Link
