Fallen Fate announce new album, titled Into The Black

North eastern metal unit Fallen Fate have announced their upcoming full-length release, Into The Black. Following the release of 2011’s The Virus Has Spread, with which the band stormed the UK, Fallen Fate have regrouped and are ready to unleash another lashing of metal onto the masses.

Recorded in part in Stymphalian Productions in York with producer James Stephenson and finished in vocalist Lee Skinner’s home studio, Into the Black retains the Fallen Fate’s signature punishing heaviness but it’s also apparent that the band has moved on musically since The Virus Has Spread. Vocalist Lee Skinner comments:

Dark, Expressive and Heavy… The sound and feel of Fallen Fate has changed quite a bit since the release of The Virus Has Spread. The band has progressed and developed a more solid metal sound while maintaining a unique mix of speed and heaviness in the music.

Based on a horror movie theme around a young girl called Vespa, the concept of Into The Black plays a big part in how the album sounds and how it is visually portrayed through the artwork and upcoming videos. It contributed to the evolving sound of the band as we introduced more keyboards and experimental sounds into the mix, giving it a different dark feel and sound.

Vocalist Lee continues to say:

She [Vespa] chose a life without faith and over time became possessed by a demon. The demon slowly took over her body and ultimately lead her to kill herself and her family. The drive behind the concept is to empower the listener to decide whether she was possessed by the Devil, as she has no saviour in her life, or if she was possessed by God, punishing her for her lack of faith.

The artwork designed by both Photographer Ian Cameron and Skinner through his own Black Venom Designs compliments the album’s running theme. Supported by a release show in The Forum, Darlington, the album is set for release 30th January 2014.
