Dutch Blackened Death Metal band ONHEIL releases their new single and video for ‘Bloodthirst’. This third single from their upcoming album “In Black Ashes” will be out on all digital platforms on Friday, June 2. The full album will be out on the 23rd of June 2023 and released by Swedish label BLACK LION RECORDS. On that same date, the release of ‘In Black Ashes’ will be celebrated with a special live show at the Bibelot venue, in Dordrecht, The Netherlands. FENRIS (Viking Black/Death Metal) and MASK OF INSANITY (Melodic Black/Death Metal) will be the support acts that evening.
The new single is accompanied by an Animated Visualizer Video. The video uses multiple pieces of artwork that give a hint about the context of the song.
Vocalist/Guitarist Amok says this about the song: “ ‘Bloodthirst’ is a raging Blackened Death Metal track that tries to capture the feeling of the primal aggressive tendencies that humanity can’t seem to lose, with both the horror and sadness that it brings. For this reason the song sounds part furious and deadly, part depressive and damned. I am the warlord… of damnation! I guess that intro sentence says it all!”
‘In Black Ashes’ is ONHEIL’s third full-length album and is mixed and mastered by legendary producer Dan Swanö at the Unisound Studios (Dissection, Opeth, Dark Funeral, Bloodbath, Marduk, Insomnium), vocals and drums recorded by Jonathan Merrelaar at the Red Pack Studios (Picture), and guitar recordings were assisted by Bart Hennephof (ex-Textures.) at the Creative Music Lab.
The visualizer video, single and album artwork was created by artist Lordigan Pedro Seno, who worked before with bands and artists like Amon Amarth, Kreator, Decapitated and Matt Heafy (Trivium). The animation is done by Cloud Music Typography, who has done videos before for Arch Enemy, The Haunted, Mayhem, Napalm Death, Naglfar, Dark Fortress and Archspire.
