The Skinny: Norwegian atmospheric metal duo Posthum have just released a second single from their September 25th (September 21st – Europe) release Lights Out. The track, “Red,” can be streamed exclusively through the Indie Recordings SoundCloud – listen below! While you’re there, you can also check out their first single “Scarecrow” as well.
Lights Out, the band’s second album, was described by the band as atmospheric and gloomy with a melancholic undertone, even though songs are aggressive and feature progressive elements. The lyrics for the album were inspired by nature, dreams and nightmares, the material and commercial world and the human condition.
Posthum was formed in 2004 in a small town in the east of Norway, and in order to develop a fresh and new sound, isolated themselves from any other musical influences until 2009 when they released their self-titled debut. Their unique sound landed them a spot on a European tour alongside black metal legends Satyricon and Shining (SE). The band is finally ready to release their eagerly anticipated second album!
