Empyreal Sorrow PRÆY Release: 20 November 2020

With their second single Source Of (In) Humanity, Empyreal Sorrow are spilling pure hate and scorn - on those false prophets and leaders who are deceiving and blinding us with their destructive egoism. Is there any way out for humanity? Maybe, in the end, we all will stand alone...
Stirring groove, energetic riffing and catchy lyrics that instantly will make you bang your head - another awesome dose of Melodic Death Metal from Empyreal Sorrow.
There is only one goal for Empyreal Sorrow: enjoying the music and the company of those that share the same vision without compromising the own believes. So join the ranks of the „Cult Of Sorrow“ - now!

The debut album PRÆY from the German Melodic Death Metallers will be out on 20 November.

Every track on PRÆY covers the one thing that unites mankind the most - devastation. Be it personal devastation through depression or drugs, be it devastation through senseless wars or blind belief in misleading god-figures. The band took a lot of effort and time to find the right balance between the lyrical and musical content. It surely helps that EMPYREAL SORROW’s members all have a long and solid background as a studio and live Metal musicians. Starting in early 2019, the recordings progressed until the midst of 2020. And it was a real „coming to life“ process as the basic ideas from Mastermind Martin Hofbauer underwent a constant change when each member put its personal stamp on arrangement and content. The outcome: A massive beast of a Melodic Death Metal album, on point in terms of production and individuality.

Inspired by the great Swedish Death Metal tradition of bands like Edge Of Sanity, At The Gates, Dark Tranquillity or In Flames, the band also impersonates a touch of a Black Metal feeling within its melodies, vocals and riffing. The foundation is Death Metal, but there is no rule to what it takes for an EMPYREAL SORROW song to be unique. This simple strategy also led to the implementation of two vocalists - with Martin Szeike providing the guttural, deep grunts, and Sebastian Moser slamming out his more Black Metal-like screams.

There is only one goal for EMPYREAL SORROW - enjoying the music and the company of those that share the same vision without compromising the own believes. So join the ranks of the „Cult Of Sorrow“ - now!

Empyreal Sorrow is Melodic Death Metal with well-known trademarks heeling to a new emotional side. The band takes the Death-Metal-wheel, demolishes it completely and puts it back together again in their very own way, creating an individual sound with a lot of interesting facets. Their musical construct is born out of aggression paired with ear-catching melody and a sometimes Black Metal-like atmosphere; the music is punchy, dynamic and drills directly into your head. Raw energy flows through every single song: boosting the urge to bang your head until total escalation. Definitely a band you should consider listening to.
