The German doom metallers Owl shared two new tracks from their upcoming third album "Nights in Distortion". The animated video for the song "Anamnesis", created by the Romanian artist Costin Chioreanu (Arch Enemy, At the Gates, Enslaved, Ivar Bjørnson & Einar Selvik), can be viewed above. The second song, titled "Transparent Monument", is available for listening here.
Commenting on "Transparent Monument", the founder and main songwriter of the group Christian Kolf said the following: "Nobody ever told you how to cope with all the bad memories that fill your brain up the older you get. This is the burden of existence. If you want to live a long life you have to accept the ongoing loss you will experience throughout that. Take life as a miracle, because in chaos, you will never know if anything really matters- There is some 80s Whitesnake — endless summer freedom vibe in the song, especially in the end. Pure Sleaze Emotions. You must live on."
According to the press release, Owl’s forthcoming 3rd full-length record "Nights in Distortion, nearly never came to fruition due to the impact of the death of their bassist René Marquis. Over 4 years in the making, the band’s long-awaited record will finally be realized on September 7th via the Swedish label Temple of Torturous Records. Earlier the band has presented the song "Madness Is The Glory Of This Life", which will also appear on the new album.
"Nights in Distortion" is available for pre-order via Bandcamp. Follow the links to listen to other doom metal albums with a review from Noizr Zine: "Mirror Reaper" by Bell Witch and "The Incubus of Karma" by Mournful Congregation.
