New album "Cold Soul Embrace" out on June 24th!
In 2019 Cosmic Key Creations issued the long overdue vinyl version of the 1994 ‘Dance The Marble Naked ‘ album by U.K. cult doomsters ENCHANTMENT. This was soon to be followed in 2020 with the reissue of the album on both CD and cassette format by Transcending Records. The renewed interest inspired the band to regroup and to set about finishing their 2nd album that was already written and composed back in 1994/5(!) but never made it to the recording stage. The band dug up the old rehearsal tapes and finished the album 25 years after the initial process. This is the album that was meant to follow up from their debut and the songs are therefore an exciting time capsule that will take you back to the heyday of the U.K.’s Death/Doom Metal scene of the early nineties.
Enchantment are a Death/Doom metal band originating from the U.K. and were first formed way back in 1993 in the midst of the UK Death/Doom metal scene alongside the likes of Paradise Lost, Anathema and My Dying Bride. In that year they released a self-funded demo ‘A Tear for Young Eloquence’ and were subsequently signed by Century Media Records before recording and releasing their debut album ‘Dance The Marble Naked’ in early 1994. The band played alongside many great Death Metal bands from that era including Bolt Thrower, Anathema, Cancer and Cradle of Filth before unfortunately disbanding the following year in 1995. However, all this was not before they had already written (but not studio recorded) almost an entire second album. Fast forward nearly 25 years, and with the reissue of their debut album on vinyl for the first time (and after numerous successful reissues earlier on CD) the band have now officially regrouped. In 2020 the band started the unenviable task of resurrecting all the original rehearsal tapes and lyrical content from that lost second album and started working on demoing the tracks. This caught the attention of both Cosmic Key Creations and Transcending Records with whom the band ultimately decided to sign up to with the prospect of finally recording and co-releasing their sophomore album. It is unknown if any other similar band can claim to have written almost a full album in the heyday of the British Death / Doom metal scene and for it to have never been recorded or released. Yet nearly 28 years to the day exactly that ‘Dance The Marble Naked’ was first released way back in 1994, the band are now about to finally release their long awaited sophomore album ‘Cold Soul Embrace’ in 2022.This release is like no-other and is somewhat of a time capsule! It is the closest representation of Enchantment during the U.K. Death Metal scene circa mid 1994 to 1995 and the scene will finally get to hear it in full, early 2022.
