Due out March 3rd in Europe and March 18th in North America via Century Media Records, Vampire’s self-titled debut has already taken the metal community by storm with 10 old school, blackened-death metal tracks that “…make the cross-generational/genre mélange unique, menacing in march and venomous in voice” (Decibel Magazine.com). For a preview of Vampire, a new album track, “The Fen”, is now streaming online via YouTube – listen below.

Featuring eerie cover artwork by Mattias Frisk (Ghost, Vanhelgd, Maim, etc.), Vampire is a “vast, rich-sounding record that merely celebrates a moment when metal had no restrictions beyond its authors’ technical abilities” (Stereogum.com). To pre-order Vampire, please visit CM Distro for a variety of physical formats.
