NACHTBLUT announces new album Vanitas,Out October 2!

Three years since the release of their previous album, Apostasie, dark metal pioneers NACHTBLUT return with even more vigor and announce their new gloomy offering, Vanitas, out October 2 via Napalm Records.

The first single “Das Puppenhaus” (engl. the dollhouse) is reminiscent of scene giants such as Rammstein and draws the listener deep into the significant NACHTBLUT sound. Rhythmic guitars weave all throughout this smashing hymn while a steady rhythm underlines the honest lyrics.

The soft, harmonic, yet calm introduction may appear deceptive, but NACHTBLUT is by no means representing their song in a restrained manner. Askeroth’s dark voice effortlessly shifts between whispering growls and clean vocals while authentically smashing the listener’s ears.

NACHTBLUT on the new single:

"With “Das Puppenhaus“ we combined an issue that seems to be outdated, but actually is more up to date than you might think. The title of song sounds nice and harmonious, but if you see behind the curtain you will realize the omnipresent and claustrophobic atmosphere. With the dark video for „Das Puppenhaus“ we substantiate the songs prevailing mood and giving the metaphor we use a strong visual cue.“
