“Boiling Heart Of The North”, the new video from Dark Helsinki, Finland-based metallers OCTOBER FALLS, can be seen below. The clip was directed by Håkan Sjödin, who has previously worked with MARDUK and SETHERIAL, among others.
“Boiling Heart Of The North” coms off OCTOBER FALLS‘ fourth album, “The Plague Of A Coming Age”, which was released on March 15 on CD and vinyl via Debemur Morti Productions. According to a press release, the CD sees “the band continu[ing] to explore its exquisitely sonorous world, deeply melancholic, subtly aggressive and always divinely melodic.” Once again, Mikko Lehto gathered gifted musicians around him for the recording: Marko Tarvonen (MOONSORROW) on drums and Sami Hinkka (ENSIFERUM) on bass. A very special guest contributed clean vocals on two songs: Tomi Joutsen (AMORPHIS). The visual art was imagined and painted by talented Argentinian artist Santiago Caruso.
“The Plague Of A Coming Age” track listing:
01. At the Edge Of An Empty Horizon
03. The Verge Of Oblivion
04. Snakes Of The Old World
05. The Plague Of A Coming Age

OCTOBER FALLS‘ current musical style is described in a press release as “a mixture of atmospheric acoustic music and harsher black metal-oriented material and could be compared to early acoustic ULVER, DRUDKH and PRIMORDIAL blended together with a personal touch and strong melodies. Still, the early acoustic side has not been completely abandoned; there have been occasional acoustic releases through the years and there will also be similar releases again at some point on the horizon.”
