With the release of their fifth single, “Sleepwalkers”, legendary Swedish doom/gothic metal masters DRACONIAN mark the apex cut from their upcoming studio album, “Under A Godless Veil,” out this past Friday October 30, 2020 via Napalm Records.

A haunting doom spirit covers the world underneath a melancholic Godless Veil

Under a Godless Veil” delivers a captivating mélange of dreary doom and contrasting vocals. The first notes of the opener will immediately draw the listener into a void of interweaving beauty, coalescing with paralyzing depression that leaves nothing but the desire of total immersion in the whole record. Under a Godless Veil carries the legacy of gothic doom metal à la My Dying Bride into a new decade of the genre.

DRACONIAN states:
“To DRACONIAN, “Under a Godless Veil” is by far the most diverse album we have created. Inspired by some of the music closest to Johan’s heart; everything from traditional Doom to scaled-down, Gothic rock-inspired pieces and more. Some will perhaps describe the songs as more refined and meditative. Some ambient elements have been added to the mix without overshadowing the traditional characteristics that are DRACONIAN.

Resonating with the compositions, Anders’s lyrical direction is ambiguous and a progression of the first two-three albums, yet more subtle while embracing the Gnostic philosophy more directly. One could say “Under a Godless Veil” is an act of contemplation; About living and dying and remembering who we are in a strange, abrasive world far from home.“
