The Vision Bleak - New Album In September, Cover Unveiled

Gothic metal duo The Vision Bleak haven't released a new album since 2010's Set Sail To Mystery but this year they are returning with Witching Hour which is coming on September 27th through Prophecy Productions, so mark you calendars! The album has a witchcraft concept and the cover artwork can be seen below.

According to the label, "Schwadorf and Konstanz hark back to their debut The Deathship Has A New Captain, and the slogan 'creepy and haunting entertainment' has not been more topical and fitting ever since 2004. The comprehensive witchcraft concept of Witching Hour highlights the duo as morbid storytellers with a bizarrely brutal, yet also entertaining assortment of fairytales and myths up their sleeves. Familiar elements such as groovy, driving riffs, sublime, melodic lead guitars and Konstanz' unique voice are still the defining characteristics, yet new implementations like the haunting flute or the most versatile and sinister vocals so far are crucial to the fact that Witching Hour in its entirety sounds more dour and unfathomable than earlier recordings."

The pre-orders are available here. The band will also tour in Europe around the time of the new album release.
