Two years after the release of their previous chart-topping offering, A Dying Wish, black-death metal frontrunners THULCANDRA celebrate the release of their brand new, critically-acclaimed studio album, Hail The Abyss, out now via Napalm Records!
"With ‘Hail The Abyss’, we count the 5th album within 20 years of Thulcandra“, guitarist/vocalist Steffen Kummerer recently said. "A banger, and a diverse record that shows a unique blend of black and death metal, combined with classic heavy metal twin guitars. ‘Hail The Abyss’ undoubtedly turned into a highlight of our long lasting career.“
Indeed, Hail The Abyss proves yet again why THULCANDRA are atop death metal’s malefic vedette - showcasing their affinity for dark, aggressive and mellifluous metal while the entire album rips and terrorizes with the intensity of hell! As always, THULCANDRA's about a vibe - there's always a unique "feel" that's distinctly old-school, but without the tired trappings of it.
In support of today's record release, the band just unleashed a new visualizer video for the final, crushing mid-tempo album single, "On The Wings Of Cosmic Fire"!

THULCANDRA’s rise to power ignited when the band unleashed their debut album, Fallen Angel’s Dominion, upon metaldom in 2010. The group, fronted by founding member and visionary, Steffen Kummerer (also of Obscura fame), have since tightened their hibernal grip on blackened death metal. The desolate melodic emanations in follow-up studio records Under a Frozen Sun (2011), Ascension Lost (2015), and the chart-topping, 2021 album, A Dying Wish, dedicated to late bassist Chris Kratzer, solidified THULCANDRA as a superior force, expertly thrusting the magic and mystery of mid-’90s melodic black-death metal into the modern era.
Hail The Abyss was produced and recorded by Steffen Kummerer at Klangfabrik, Germany, and was mixed and mastered by renowned producer Dan Swanö (Dissection, Opeth, Katatonia). The album is out now on Napalm Records, and available in the following formats:
- 1CD Digipak, incl. Bonus tracks
