News: Thulcandra Announce New Album, ‘Hail The Abyss’

Black-death metal force Thulcandra have announced the release of their brand-new studio album. Hail The Abyss will be unleashed on May 19 via Napalm Records and sees the band prove yet again why they’re atop death metal’s malefic vedette.

Thulcandra’s rise to power ignited when the Germany-based outfit unleashed their debut album, Fallen Angel’s Dominion, upon metaldom in 2010. The group, fronted by founding member and visionary Steffen Kummerer (also of Obscura fame), have tightened their hibernal grip on blackened death metal since. The desolate melodic emanations in follow-up studio records Under a Frozen Sun (2011), Ascension Lost (2015), and the chart-topping, 2021-album A Dying Wish, dedicated to late drummer Chris Kratzer, solidified Thu Thulcandra Lcandra as a superior force, expertly thrusting the magic and mystery of mid-’90s melodic black-death metal into the modern era.

Their fifth attack, “Hail the Abyss,” showcases the band‘s affinity for dark, aggressive, and mellifluous metal while the album rips and terrorizes with the intensity of hell. As always, Thulcandra’s about a vibe—There’s always a unique “feel” that’s distinctly old-school, but without the tired trappings of it.

Currently, the four-piece not only continue to gear up for their first ever North American tour, but also have just unleashed a video for their new, fierce album single, “As I Walk Through The Gateway.”

Watch the music video of “As I Walk Through The Gateway” on YouTube:

Guitarist and vocalist Steffen Kummerer says:

“‘As I Walk Through The Gateway’ turned into a catchy, relentless, and melodic exercise of black and death metal that blends the strengths of the band in a unique form. Catch the band on their first North American tour alongside Fleshgod Apocalypse, Obscura and Wolfheart to feel the blistering power behind this composition in a live setting.”


Hail The Abyss is out May 19, 2023 via Napalm Records. Preorder the album here.
