Black-death metal force THULCANDRA has announced the release of their brand new studio album! Hail The Abyss will be unleashed on May 19, 2023 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 THULCANDRA 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.

Give ear, as in support of their upcoming record release, today, the four-piece not only continues to gear up for their first ever North American tour, but has just unleashed a video for their new, fierce album single, "As I Walk Through The Gateway"!

Says band guitarist/vocalist Steffen Kummerer:

"As I Walk Through The Gateway turned into a catchy, relentless and melodic exercise of black & 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."

Cooperation with renowned producer Dan Swanö (Dissection, Opeth, Katatonia) was compulsory, as was the re-invitation to cover-master Lochner.

"With 'Hail The Abyss', we just count the 5th album within 20 years of Thulcandra", Kummerer continues. "A banger, and a diverse record that shows a unique blend of black and death metal, combined with classic heavy metal twin guitars. The album turned out excellent and Dan Swanö delivered a splendid mix - raw, natural and showcasing each individual musician on the record. 'Hail The Abyss' undoubtedly turned into a highlight of our long lasting career."
