Kings Destroy reveal a second song from their forthcoming album, Fantasma Nera (8th March, Svart Records). Listen to the stream of “Barbarossa” now –
“This one is definitely a bit of an outlier,” explains guitar player Chris Skowronski. “It’s more up-tempo and melodic than the rest of the record. Lyrically, the song recounts the last thoughts of a soldier dying on a battlefield. I think that contrast between the subject matter of the lyrics and vibe of the music works really well.”
Fantasma Nera pre-orders are available now via Svartrecords.com with physical bundles including coloured vinyl and other merchandise. Digital pre-orders include an instant download of the title track.
The band recently announced performances at this year’s Maryland Doom Fest as well as the New England Stoner and Doom Fest. Kings Destroy previously announced an eight-date east coast tour.
