Porta Nigra - Set To Release Fourth Album This Summer

On July 28th, 2023, the German ensemble Porta Nigra will put out their fourth studio album Weltende through Soulseller Records. Pre-orders will go live on May 31st, together with a brand new track.

Vocalist André Meyrink Meyrink explains: "This album transports the very aspects of war and what war causes to you mentally quite perfect. It is shocking, fanatic, dramatic, and depressing in equal measure and almost devoured me. Definitely no easy-listening stuff, but an album that grows and grows like the horrors of martial destruction."

Guitarist/songwriter Tobias (AKA Gilles de Rais) delves deeper: "With Weltende, we did again what we prefer the most - time travelling. Our destination of choice was the troubled period before the dawn of the monstrous sin of the 20th century - the Great War. An art called expressionism gave hints of the abyss that the European continent and its citizens would get thrown into. Especially authors like Georg Heym, Jakob van Hoddis, Georg Trakl, or Gottfried Benn would paint in their poems with drastic metaphors of war, death, and decay a picture of a moribund world overpopulated by lunatic and doomed souls. Many of those young men would not grow old and never be able to live a life beyond their apocalyptic visions. This album, for which we respectfully borrowed a handful of ideas, is dedicated to them and their legacy."

Another WW1 album then, interesting! I assume it'll be more like the first two and not like Schöpfungswut, which was way more of a classical melo bm excursion. At least they previously said they'll return to making crazier music and also this announcement feels like that.
