Spellsword releases second single “A Dark Being In The Shadows”

Extracted from the debut album “Night Of The Grail”, coming out on July 28th, 2023 via Nox Liberatio Records, the Portuguese act Spellsword has revealed the second single “A Dark Being In The Shadows”.

The album will contain ten tracks of modern black metal with exquisite attention to composing details, lyrics and theme.

Alex Mendes, commented:

“In this song, the eighth of the album, one enters a slow forest of distortion that increasingly encroaches on the listener. As it culminates into an ever-heavier hellscape, it becomes too late to turn back. At a certain point, the demonic riffs return to the shadows, and the silence is taken over by atmospheric horror. But the musical violence is sure to return as the song takes an epic turn. With merciless blast beats, crushing palm muting, and tremolo picking, this is undoubtedly the heaviest song of “Night of the Grail.”
