Soulburn:  Launch "In Suffocating Darkness" video-clip; Working on new album!
Dutch blackened Death Doom Metallers SOULBURN are launching a video clip for the song "In Suffocating Darkness", off their current album "The Suffocating Darkness", out on Century Media Records.

The atmospheric clip, which was directed by Twan van Geel and produced by Pim Voormeulen as well as Dennis Wassenburg / dwfoto.nl, can be now seen here: youtube.com

SOULBURN vocalist/bassist Twan van Geel checked in to comment about the clip as follows: "The year 2016 has just emerged from its slumbering decay as we already provide you with our official video for ''In Suffocating Darkness'. We hope you'll enjoy our foul taste of obscured dark art as much as we do! And last but 'satanically' not least: The tarot cards on the table show your future, live up to it and indulge, into oblivion!"

Originally SOULBURN emerged after a first demise of Dutch death metal legend Asphyx in the mid 90's, when founding members Eric Daniels (guitars) and Bob Bagchus (drums) looked for a seperate outlet to unleash their mutual obsession with Bathory, Venom and Celtic Frost. After a demo and the cult "Feeding On Angels" debut album via Century Media Records in 1998, which featured Wannes Gubbels (Pentacle) on vocals/bass, SOULBURN were put to rest when Asphyx returned with "On The Wings Of Inferno" (2000) with the same line-up. SOULBURN was dead, buried, but not forgotten...

And 16 years after their debut album, SOULBURN resurfaced in their new line-up featuring the core of Eric Daniels (guitars) and Bob Bagchus (drums), teaming up with Twan van Geel (Flesh Made Sin, Legion Of The Damned) as vocalist/bassist and Remco Kreft (Grand Supreme Blood Court, Nailgun Massacre, Xenomorph) as second guitarist to create "The Suffocating Darkness". Their sophomore album was recorded with Harry Wijering / Harrow Productions) and mix/mastering duties were taken over by Dan Swanö / Unisound Recordings. The frontcover was designed by Timo Ketola (Watain, Deathspell Omega, etc.) and additional art was provided by Roberto Toderico (Sinister, Asphyx, etc.).

SOULBURN's "The Suffocating Darkness" album is still available as special edition CD (in O-Card packaging and with an enhancement of a full-dynamic vinyl mix in high-resolution MP3 format as bonus) or as 180gr. vinyl LP (either on unlimited black vinyl or as limited transparent red vinyl) from CM Distro Europe here: cmdistro.de

Most recently, SOULBURN released a split 7" EP with Desaster in 2015 featuring the new track "The Lats Monument Of God" and are currently working on new material for the follow-up album to "The Suffocating Darkness", expected to be released later in 2016.
