POISONBLACK’s captivating new video for “Rush” will make its Headbangers Ball debut this Saturday at 10PM EST/7PM PST. The track is from their new acclaimed album, Lust Stained Despair, and features ex-Sentenced frontman Ville Laihiala on lead vocals and guitars. This offering is a voracious hard rock assault laden with mesmerizing gothic overtones and is definitely a must for Amorphis, H.I.M. and Katatonia fans. For those who can’t wait until this weekend click on the link below to check out the video now.
In the spring of 2006, POISONBLACK headed back into Tonebox Studio in its hometown of Oulu, Finland to complete work on Lust Stained Despair. Laihiala states: “We added additional feelings and frustrations to the already existing ones and it’s what the songs required from each individual in order to make us sound as poisonous as we do. All three words in the title, ‘Lust Stained Despair,’ are individually giving a picture, a feeling about the music and lyrics. Enough said.” The effort was mixed and mastered at Antfarm Studios by the acclaimed Tue Madsen (Himsa, The Haunted).
With Sentenced put to rest, Laihiala’s main priority is now Poisonblack, and with a more focused lineup in place, the group are poised to deliver a release that should add a glimmer of hope to an otherwise bleak world.
