SOULBURN – Announce new album “NOA’S D’ARK”; Launch first single “From Archaeon into Oblivion”; Album pre-order starts today!
Dutch blackened Death Doom Metallers SOULBURN return with their fourth album and follow-up to 2016’s “Earthless Pagan Spirit” release. Entitled “NOA’S D’ARK”, the album will be released on November 13th, 2020 via Century Media Records.
SOULBURN’s frontman Twan van Geel comment about “NOA’S D’ARK” as follows:
“A symbiosis of the biblical tale and the mayhem of the currents inherent each present; a mirror of realities. Yes, a play of words, and even more so, a decay of births. So please indulge, feel free to dare wrapping your own mind around, for it for sure is, in the very core of its essence, a vessel in honour of the strength and the art, of chaos and freedom: NOA’S D’ARK.
Applied with the pleasure of pressure, a Satanic gesture if you wish – a clash – a crash of narratives of mundane hollowness, of empty parasites sucking on the big nothing. A lucid statement in praise of the ever-lurking darkness that surrounds us, drinking it, eating it, in triumph over boredom – to thrive. To exist through meaning brought to the surface by one’s own revelations rather than just by leaning into traps of false acceptance or flat expectations. To grow some horns that is, an existentialist beast – come feast!
Enter NOA’S D’ARK, a tale of life, and even more so, of the uncountable death’s ahead. Dig your teeth in its flesh, just like I did, and absorb. NOA’S D’ARK is yours as much as it is ours. And there is Magick, lots of it to salvage, it can be yours too, and hell yes, black as night it is!”
SOULBURN are releasing a first single for “NOA’S D’ARK” today. Check out the song “From Archaeon into Oblivion” in a lyric video (created by Cloud Music Typography) here: https://youtu.be/

Forged amid the temporary demise of legendary death metal crew Asphyx in 1996, guitarist Eric Daniels, alongside drummer Bob Bagchus and frontman Wannes Gubbels (Pentacle) swiftly established themselves with SOULBURN as masters of stripped down and doom-laden black metal with seminal debut album “Feeding On Angels” in 1998. Initially influenced by Bathory, Venom and Celtic Frost, SOULBURN have been an intermittent but devastating musical force ever since, weathering numerous line-up changes along the way but never losing that deathly focus and fury on the next albums “The Suffocating Darkness” (2014) and “Earthless Pagan Spirit” (2016). Now consisting of founding member Eric Daniels (ex Asphyx, Grand Supreme Blood Court), vocalist/bassist Twan van Geel (Legion Of The Damned), second guitarist Remco Kreft (Graceless, ex Grand Supreme Blood Court) and newest addition Marc Verhaar (Graceless) on drums, SOULBURN are soon to unleash their upcoming, angst-inducing new album “NOA’S D’ARK”. Look out for a true sonic inferno for godless souls!
