Nightwraith brings their own unique blackened heavy metal to the table with their new record Offering, which we're streaming in full below. It's an extremely cool listened rife with throat-shredding vocals, classic rock organs, and of course dizzying stringwork.
"We are thrilled for people to hear this album in full! We love the singles, but I think our heavier material lies within the rest of the tracks," said Nightwraith's Benjamin Pitts. "For example, 'Beguiler' has some really driving black-metal passages and the ending contains an epic 4 guitar harmony rock-out section, perfect headbanging material!
"'Shavano' has a lot of really dark riffs, some blast beats, and a bridge full of 'proggy' sounding keyboards/synths reminiscent of classic bands like Styx and Yes.
"'The Snake and the Rope,' which is the album's closing track, leads with a very mellow introduction (featuring guest vocals from Grant Netzorg of In the Company of Serpents) and is juxtaposed with an ending that is probably the heaviest section on the entire record. This album explores some different sonic territory but maintains its heaviness throughout all of its 8 compositions. We are all very proud of what we accomplished with Offering, and hope that everyone enjoys these tracks as much as we do!"
Offering is out March 25. Pre-orders are available here.
