Décembre Noir

Danish
Det tyske doom/death metal band Décembre Noir var et af de bands, som desværre måtte aflyse deres optræden på sidste års festival. Vi er derfor begejstrede for at kunne meddele, at Décembre Noir vil spille på Raise Your Horns 2021! Bandets seneste album ’The Renaissance of Hope’ udkom i november på Lifeforce Records, og herfra er den spritnye video til nummeret ‘A Swan Lake Full of Tears’. Videoens dystre og inddragende udtryk passer perfekt til denne mørke og kolde tid, og et band med navnet Décembre Noir kan vist ikke være mere oplagt som årets sidste offentliggørelse.

The Renaissance of Hope er fjerde album fra Décembre Noir siden debuten ’A Discouraged Believer’ i 2014. Albummet byder på seks numre, hvoraf ingen varer under seks minutter. Dette er typisk for gruppens tilgang til sangskrivning, da numrene ofte ligger på 8-9 minutter. Sangenes længde giver plads til variation, hvor et enkelt nummer kan skifte mellem knusende tung doom, blastbeat death og melodiske, melankolske passager uden nogensinde at blive forvirrende eller miste den røde tråd. Denne dygtige tyske kvintet spiller musik, som vil appellere til fans af bands som My Dying Bride, Draconian, In Mourning og Be’lakor, og vi ser frem til at skabe den rette efterårsstemning i selskab med Décembre Noir på Raise Your Horns 2021.

German doom/death metal band Décembre Noir was one of the bands that unfortunately had to cancel their performance at the festival this year. Thus, we are thrilled to reveal that Décembre Noir will play Raise Your Horns 2021! The band’s latest album ‘The Renaissance of Hope’ was released in November on Lifeforce Records with the brand-new video for ‘A Swan Lake Full of Tears’ out now. The sombre and captivating tone of the video is a perfect fit for this dark and cold season, and a band named Décembre Noir could not be more apropos as the final announcement of the year.

The Renaissance of Hope is the fourth album from Décembre Noir since their debut ’A Discouraged Believer’ in 2014. The album consists of six songs with none lasting less than six minutes. This is the group’s typical approach to song writing as their songs often clock in at eight or nine minutes. The length of the songs allows for variation with a single track switching between crushingly heavy doom, blast beat death and melodic, melancholic parts without ever becoming confusing or losing the common thread. This talented German quintet plays music that will appeal to fans of bands such as My Dying Bride, Draconian, In Mourning and Be’lakor and we look forward to creating the proper Autumn atmosphere together with Décembre Noir at Raise Your Horns 2021.
