Melodic progressive metal powerhouse NOTHNEGAL has unveiled the brand new video trailer for their new album, Decadence, with MetalInjection.net today. The trailer samples new music and teases the album’s concept. The video’s graphics and animation was created by Muart/Oto (a Maldivian company) and was directed by Shamheed. Head to MetalInjection.net now to watch the trailer, and to listen to a full track, head to MetalSucks.net to stream ‘Janus’.
“The trailer is showing a human trapped inside an enemy drone. She is helpless and her brain is connected the drone and is using her intelligence (first scene) but she has no control of her own mind. The drones have somehow crashed and are trying to get back into the air (the last scene),” states guitarist Hilarl.
“Decadence is based on a post apocalyptic story that Fufu and came up with, where there is no land left due to the sea level rise so artificial islands are built and everyone (not all of them) are moved to these islands,” continues Hilarl. “The humans begin to depend more and more on the machines, the machines become more intelligent by the day and finally they go against the humans. A war takes places between both races. The machines take power and enslave the humans. A small group of humans escape and they are the last hope for the human race.”
Decadence is set to release on January 24th, 2012 in the U.S. and in other major international markets four days earlier on January 20th, 2012. The album is mixed by Greg Reely (Fear Factory, Machine Head, DevilDriver) and Ahti Kortelainen (Sentenced, Sonarta Arctica). Decadence marks the first official full-length release from NOTHNEGAL.
Decadence is currently available for pre-order on Season of Mist’s e-shop as a limited digipak edition. Each copy from the first pressing of the album will come with a unique code that can allow you to win a trip to the band’s stomping grounds… the Maldives! The 5-day journey will take place at the Fihalhohi Island Resort in Summer 2012. The winner will receive one return flight to the Maldives, an all-inclusive stay (including scuba-diving and other water sport activities) for two people and a meet and greet with the band. More details can be found in the booklet of the album.
NOTHNEGAL boasts a dark melancholic streak flowing through their modern melodic death metal sound, also weaving in very subtle touches of industrial and progressive elements. NOTHNEGAL was founded by guitarists (and cousins) Hilarl and Fufu on the capital island Malé in 2006 after leaving their previous group Mortuary. The cousins are supported by Six Feet Under, Dååth, ex-Chimaira drummer Kevin Talley and Finnish keyboard player Marco Sneck (Kalmah, Poisonblack). Decadence demonstrates a quick evolution of NOTHNEGAL from their previously released, self-produced four track EP. Mixed by Finnish producer Anssi Kippo (Children of Bodom, Norther), Antidote of Realism (2009) catapulted the Maldivians into the international scene, who successfully supported Finntroll and Samael during their 2010 European tour covering 25 cities in 12 countries.
Decadence is poised to position NOTHNEGAL above fan’s expectations for just another exotic, eclectic, foreign act, offering a melodic, yet crushing door into the minds of the men behind the helm. This may be the first time you are hearing about NOTHNEGAL, but it certainly will not be the last.
