Blackened Death Metal Trio NEVALRA To Reissue Debut EP;New Video For 'Groom Lake' Unveiled!

The extreme/melodic blackened death metal trio NEVALRA – whose 2019 debut full-length “Conjure The Storm” was hailed by Decibel Magazine as “riff-centric, complex death metal with pristine production” – will reissue their acclaimed 2015 debut EP “The Black Flame” across all major digital platforms on Aug. 28. To celebrate its forthcoming launch, the band has released a new video for the EP's closing track, “Groom Lake.” Designed by Raf Ortega of Ecliptic Visions (Hecate Enthroned, Nightfall), the clip – which premiered yesterday via No Clean Singing – can be seen HERE.

Says vocalist/guitarist Scott Eames, “'Groom Lake' was influenced by the rumors and secretive nature surrounding Area 51. The subject has always piqued my interest. Are we alone? Or are we not alone? Either thought is astounding. 'Groom Lake' was written in three segments, structurally building the song both musically and lyrically. It is truly one of my favorites to perform live on tour and has been mentioned a lot as a fan favorite. NEVALRA felt it was time to create some new visuals to articulate 'Groom Lake' for 'The Black Flame' reissue, and we are excited to now share the new official video with the world (worlds?)...”

The reissue of “The Black Flame” features an updated treatment of the original cover artwork by noted horror artist Brett Gray. While the five-track EP earned NEVALRA extensive praise at the time of its original release – MetalSucks described the band's sound as “(like) Behemoth with some high shrieks that would give even Trevor Strnad the chills” – Eames is excited to now introduce its material to a wider audience. Pre-order now.
