In Twilight's Embrace announce Sept 22nd release of "Vanitas"
Following their critically acclaimed third album, In Twilight's Embrace announce that their fourth full-length, Vanitas, will be released on 22 September 2017, through Arachnophobia Records.
Vanitas sees In Twilight's Embrace evolve into their own entity; taking a deathly and personal direction. Vanitas is the band's darkest material to date, both lyrically and musically. “Having confronted several deaths of family members and friends, made me realise the true weight of mortality,” confesses vocalist, Cyprian Lakomy. “The realisation paved the way for reflections which would later become the backbone of the lyrics and atmosphere on Vanitas”. This is not just another gimmick to create a death worshipping album. There's far more to it. Cyprian adds: “death is an opportunity to ask questions about the here and now, and what kind of legacy - if any at all - we are possibly leaving”.
Established in 2003 in Poznan, Poland, In Twilight's Embrace took the metal media by storm when they released their third album, The Grim Muse. Featuring the world-famous Tomas Lindberg of At the Gates as a guest vocalist, the album showcased focused songwriting, relentless riffs, a disciplined rhythm section and vitriolic vocals. The Grim Muse was followed by the release of a three-track EP entitled Trembling, which notably saw the band explore their punk roots with a cover of “Opowiesc Zimowa” - a song by legendary Polish act Armia. The quality of In Twilight's Embrace is not only reflected in the studio, as they frequently tour their homeland with appearances at the famous Metalmania Festival, Castle Party, and with future confirmed dates opening for the legendary Immolation during their Polish tour (with more to be announced for 2017-18).
Vanitas was recorded, mixed and mastered in 2017 by Marcin Rybicki at Vintage Records and Left Hand Sounds. CD pre-orders are now available through Arachnophobia Records. LP pre-orders will be available shortly.
