Dark Sky Burial (Napalm Death) To Release Fourth Album In December, Debut “Mind Rat” Video


Dark Sky Burial, the project spearheaded by Napalm Death bassist/vocalist Shane Embury, will be releasing its fourth studio album on December 10th. That album has been titled “Omnis Cum In Tenebris Praesertim Vita Laboret” and a first single, “Mind Rat“, has newly been launched from it. An official music video done by Chariot Of Black Moth for that can be seen below with Embury having the following to say about it:

“This video concept in some ways portrays how i feel on my weekends alone in the studio! at times i feel i gather energy around me to create the music – Mind Rat in particular reflects the darkest part of me that yearns to take control – i have spent my whole life trying to keep the demon inside – it’s now time to make friends…”

As for the album itself, Embury offered:

“This is the 4th album and closing chapter to the first Phase of the Dark Sky Burial Journey

composing these tracks has been for me very soul searching – at times the sounds seem to me reflections of my personality or rather different shades of myself, especially over the past 2 years where my worlds collided and I didn’t really know where to turn and the obvious be came blurred

composing this album like the other albums was done mainly at my home studio in Birmingham – I would lock myself away like a hermit for weekends and at intervals record pieces of music and add layers

The Heart Warrior‘ is an interesting track as its beginnings go back as far as the first album but as the track eventually developed the end result really came from how I felt emotionally that day as I finished it !

there’s something special about taking time to develop ideas – Dark Sky Burial is very much me laid bare

The timing of all these events can surly not be a coincide!
something from within. is wanting to be heard so perhaps I can be content towards the end of life journeys !

I hope you hear something within that echoes perhaps your thoughts and reflections as we enter a different version of the world we thought we knew

thank you”

Pre-orders are available now at Bandcamp.
