IN TWILIGHT'S EMBRACE - A New Special Album Out Now And Available For Streaming In Full

Polish black/death metallers In Twilight's Embrace have now unleashed a spcial release entitled Lawa. Released by the band in cooperation with Left Hand Sounds a year after the lauded fourth full-length Vanitas, Lawa is yet another step into the sonic realm of Metal Śmierci, a rift between the fundamental principles of black and death metal, yet this time taken even further, into more atmospheric, idiosyncratic and surreal directions. It’s an exorcism, during which the spirits are unbound into a November night and dance among the living. The complete album is available for streaming in the player below.
The band states: "In the evening of Forefathers' Eve or All Saints’ Day to others, we are one with our Dead. To honor them and to communicate with the netherworlds, we unleash Lawa, a work of music and word meant to mark the significance of this very day in the culture of our homeland. Sung entirely in Polish, Lawa captures what we think is the essence of the Polish spirit: a boiling mixture of insane passion, belief in the supernatural, death worship and dwelling on the past. Drawing inspiration from both the famous poetic drama “Dziady” ("Forefathers' Eve") by Adam Mickiewicz and its psychedelic movie rendition “Lawa” (1989) by Tadeusz Konwicki, the new work of In Twilight's Embrace is the proof that romantic traditions are still the cornerstone of Poland’s DNA and cultural paradigm. For better or worse. Or bitter, if you will.” Link
