German Black Metallers PORTA NIGRA Sign to Soulseller Records / Announce January 2020 Release of ‘Schöpfungswut’
The album’s first single, “Die Kosmiker,” is streaming now at the links below.
Schöpfungswut (anger of creation), the band’s third full-length album, goes back to the musical roots of the members of the band, that being traditional 1990s’ Norwegian/Swedish and German Black Metal with a lyrical concept that still would carry traces of its decadent DNA (“Die Kosmiker” or “Unser Weg nach Elysium”), but would also touch upon more traditional metal topics.
To present the lyrics in the necessary manner the band decided to work together with a new vocalist, Tongue, guitarist and creator of the German Black Metal outfit CHAOS INVOCATION.
To find the right way to craft the new songs, that would consist of blast beat drumming and traditional tremolo riffing, the band chose German producer/musician Markus Stock (EMPYRIUM, producer for SECRETS OF THE MOON etc.). A collaboration that would prove rather fruitful.
For the release of the record (CD, LP and digital) the band, after two successful records for Debemur Morti Productions, decided to work together with Dutch Soulseller Records. A prolific label that has released and re-released some of the greatest classics of Black Metal, many of them very important for the individuals behind PORTA NIGRA.
