The new record is shaping up to be a return to form. Love the interplay between the aggressive harsh vocals(!)/melodies and beautiful folky passages on the new track.

Digging: Empyrium - Uber Den Sternen

Another new track: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=irWk-toPqHs





Description: "The Three Flames Sapphire" is the opener of „Über den Sternen“ and was actually the last song that was composed for this album. It features many an element that Empyrium has always been known for and creates a great opening to the album by evoking a central mood.

I really think this song has the Empyrium DNA imprinted deeply in its very core: The acoustic instruments, the folkloristic vibe, vocals by both Thomas and myself, harsh screams and electric guitars, the yearning melancholy of the multi harmonic lead guitars and lyrically a folk tale of our home region Rhön that is both – incredibly beautiful and tragic.

Proud to present this song alongside the video clip created by Oliver König who masterfully understood to bring to life the tragic tale of the three will o’ the wisps haunting the black moor in images that are Empyrium in their very core. Three blue flames hovering over the moor at night that are the cursed souls of three beautiful, young maiden that now shall haunt your soul…

--- Markus “Schwadorf” Stock

That second single is heavenly. Astounding that a band thirty years into their career can make a song with as much fire and passion.

Heard both singles, they point to a noteworthy album at least.
