Soulburn released their new single and music video for Shrines Of Apathy yesterday. Watch the video created by Maurice Swinkels / Younique Film (Legion Of the Damned, Exodus, Kataklysm, etc.) .The track is off the band’s fourth album Noa`s Dark, which is set for release on Friday via Century Media Records.
«It is with great honor we hereby present to you our latest video: Shrines Of Apathy. Recorded and compiled by the notorious Maurice Swinkels (aka Sephiroth – dark horned ruler from the abyss) It was a great joy collaborating with him on this, and are more than pleased with his craftsmanship! Shrines Of Apathy is the 3rd single we spit out from our upcoming album Noa`s D`ark, which will be happily aborted in the viral magnitude of 2020’s November 13th. This song as well, might just remind you all of the unstilled hunger of our death magnets! The time is NOW, and however you want to fill this in on your behalf, make it count! Mors Vincit Omnia (Death In Silence)», states Soulburn front man Twan Van Geel about about Shrines Of Apathy.
Dutch blackened Death Doom Metallers Soulburn have a lyric video entitled From Archaeon Into Oblivion,
«A symbiosis of the biblical tale and the mayhem of the currents inherent each present; a mirror of realities. Yes, a play of words, and even more so, a decay of births. So please indulge, feel free to dare wrapping your own mind around, for it for sure is, in the very core of its essence, a vessel in honor of the strength and the art, of chaos and freedom: Noa`s D`ark».
«Applied with the pleasure of pressure, a Satanic gesture if you wish – a clash – a crash of narratives of mundane hollowness, of empty parasites sucking on the big nothing. A lucid statement in praise of the ever-lurking darkness that surrounds us, drinking it, eating it, in triumph over boredom – to thrive. To exist through meaning brought to the surface by one’s own revelations rather than just by leaning into traps of false acceptance or flat expectations. To grow some horns that is, an existentialist beast – come feast!».
Enter Noa`s D`ark, a tale of life, and even more so, of the uncountable death’s ahead. Dig your teeth in its flesh, just like I did, and absorb. Noa`s D`ark is yours as much as it is ours. And there is Magick, lots of it to salvage, it can be yours too, and hell yes, black as night it is!
Soulburn added the following description for From Archaeon Into Oblivion: «An ode to the never ending most admirable force of self-destruction that only mankind takes credit for, states Soulburn frontman Twan Van Geel about Noa`s D`ark».

Forged amid the temporary demise of legendary death metal crew Asphyx in 1996, guitarist Eric Daniels, alongside drummer Bob Bagchus and frontman Wannes Gubbels (Pentacle) swiftly established themselves with Soulburn as masters of stripped down and doom-laden black metal with seminal debut album Feeding On Angels in 1998. Initially influenced by Bathory, Venom and Celtic Frost. Soulburn have been an intermittent but devastating musical force ever since, weathering numerous line-up changes along the way but never losing that deathly focus and fury on the next albums The Suffocating Darkness (2014) and Earthless Pagan Spirit (2016).
Now consisting of founding member Eric Daniels (ex Asphyx, Grand Supreme Blood Court), vocalist/bassist Twan Van Geel (Legion Of The Damned), second guitarist Remco Kreft (Graceless, ex Grand Supreme Blood Court) and newest addition Marc Verhaar (Graceless) on drums.
