Gothenburg, Sweden death metal band Vampire recently released their brand new track “Skull Prayer (rough mix),” taken from the band’s forthcoming and yet untitled new studio album. So far the album doesn’t have a release date, but the band hope to have it out by late spring 2017. The recording of the album has already been finished with the group hard at work on the mixing and mastering process. If you heard Vampire’s 2014 self-titled debut album or the EP Cimmerian Shade from last year, you won’t be disappointed by what you hear next spring.

Tossing away any form of categorization, the members of Vampire agree that they have never paid much interest to the classic Stockholm death metal scene from the early ’90s. Their musical roots are based in the second wave of black metal that was popular in Scandinavia in the early 1990s. This is most likely where their graveyard-like and at times almost gothich atmosphere comes from.
