Deserted Fear release In Flames cover “Artifacts Of The Black Rain”

With “Artifacts Of The Black Rain”, German death metallers Deserted Fear launch a next new digital single after the recent release of “Funeral Of The Earth”.

Originally written and released by Swedish melodic death metal pioneers In Flames on their 1996’s album “The Jester Race”, the track “Artifacts Of The Black Rain” was now covered by Deserted Fear and was also featured as B-Side on the band’s exclusive, limited (500x copies) 7inch, which was recorded, mixed and mastered by Deserted Fear’s own Fabian Hildebrandt at Eisensound Studio.

Deserted Fear commented about the decision to pick this classic tune:

“For the B-Side of the EP we wanted to cover a song from another band, something we did live all the time in our early days because we didn’t have enough own songs to play a full set, haha. And in the studio we also didn’t cover a song in a long time!”,

Fabian states.

Further Mahne comments:

“We chose an old In Flames song, because not only for us, but also for many other bands our age, the early In Flames albums were very influential and we learned a lot from them, especially on the guitar!”

Deserted Fear’s latest, 4th studio album “Drowned By Humanity” was released in February 2019 worldwide via Century Media Records and achieved to enter the official album sales charts on position # 20 in Germany upon release.
