Thulcandra, the German black metal band led by Obscura visionary Steffen Kummerer, have released a music video for “Nocturnal Heresy” from their fourth album, A dying wish, which releases October 29.
The band’s early work was a heartfelt homage to the melodic black metal style first played by Swedish band Dissection and, although Thulcandra’s ethos is largely intact, the band has since developed a stronger individual identity. . “Nocturnal Heresy” brings six minutes of spooky and spooky black metal with subtle traces of death metal dotted around, helping to further establish Kummerer’s accomplishments in extreme metal.
Commenting on the single, which follows the previous “Funeral Pyre,” Kummerer said, “’Nocturnal Heresy’ marks another dirty cut from our upcoming album A dying wish. With the combination of our own sound with a long lasting midsection, we lower Eternal Speed to show you another side of Thulcandra. “Nocturnal Heresy” will be part of our release tour of Germany, Austria and Switzerland later in the year. “
“We come back with an album full of weird cold melodies, icy vibes and over-the-top production by Swedish legend Dan Swanö at Unisound Studios! In the first album in five years, we celebrate the essence of pure black & death metal, decked out with more twin guitars, blast beats and grimy arrangements than ever before. A dying wish with excessive shows and embark on a European tour to perform in front of all our loyal fans and supporters in the months to come, ”said the group of the next feature film.

Thulcandra, “Night heresy”
In our forces, towards a holy war
One for one we tear the night apart
In our eyes, we sculpt the gods
In the night heresy we line up and inhabit
Gather hunger in the night
To hail and kill we come together
Summoning darkness, shining brightly
In silver steel, a shade of light
Beyond horizons, the son of storms
The cry of crows, hated and despised
Truth and lie, in ancient times
The primal ruler takes one last breath
Embraced by the shadows, desperate
Triumph and steel, hard to bear
Black flames burn in my veins
My guide to igniting the eternal flames
