Hadal released lyric video for “Stormcrow” taken from the album “December”

Italian Gothic Doom Metal outfit Hadal is ready to announce that the new full-length “December” will be released on December, 5th via Planet K Records. The lyric video of the track “Stormcrow” can be seen below.

Hadal was born at the end of 2009 in the depressive Italian town of Trieste. The aim was to merge atmospheric verses and dark metal riffs, creating a slow groove with melodic yet powerful guitars. In ten years of existence, the band released two promos and one full-length (“Painful Shadow” in 2017). December is a compendium of the band history, and a greeting to the first ten years of activity. The band rearranged some old tracks and composed new melodies, keeping in mind one vision: a deeper sounding matter. This is how Hadal conceives metal music: a melancholic and gloomy sound, always linked to the people’s inner tragedies. Despite their inclination for the cold winter season, the overall result is a warm one, with no interest in overproduction. In certain cases, vocal interpretations pay tribute to the Mediterranean lyrical tradition, even if the menacing growl is still there to give a balance to the final result.
