The mighty Darkenhöld are back with their new album, “Arcanes & Sortilèges”, that will be out on the next 6th of November. Before the release, World Of Metal joined Darkenhöld label, Les Acteurs de l’Ombre Productions, to present the last advance track. So in all its dark splendour, here it is, “Héraldique”, in a exclusive for Portugal.
In 2008, Aldébaran (ex – Artefact) and Cervantes joined their forces to create Darkenhöld with the aim to play authentic medieval black metal. After two split-CDs. Darkenhöld released its first album “A Passage To The Towers”. The band goes then away to defend its music in public, before beginning the writing process of the second opus. With “Echoes To The Stone Keeper”, the band develops its universe, evocative power and sound signature: a melodic black metal made of foggy landscapes, ruins and mysterious medi eval majesty.
To conceive “Castellum” the band plunged into ancient times where legendary castles and fortresses were raised proudly to impose their magnificence. This third album gives a new life to the old stones that are full of history through a personal and imaginative work. “Memoria Sylvarum”, the fourth opus, released in May 2017 (CD version), is an ode to solitary wanderings in the forest and forgotten ruins.
November 2020 sees the coming of “Arcanes & Sortilèges”, an album that emphasizes twelve epic years. This majestic Black metal is a true invitation to a journey in these authentic places where myths and legends live on.
