DARKHER unveil upcoming debut album details

DARKHER - Realms

Darkher have just revealed the first details of their long-awaited debut full-length album, entitled “Realms“. It will be released on August 19th, 2016 via Prophecy Productions and it is already available for pre-order in their label’s webshop. Darkher is an intriguing, haunting trip through the mind and spirit of UK artist Jayn H. Wissenberg, a charismatic West Yorkshire-based vocalist and songwriter. Darkher’s first release, “The Kingdom Field” EP (2014), epitomized her broodingly intense music and created a stir across scenes, being hailed as “beautiful, teeth-edging horror” and “utterly brilliant”. Her debut album, “Realms“, impressively proves that the fire of great expectations raised by the debut’s spark were more than justified. The album features nine distinctive, dynamic and dramatic tracks that are impossible to resist. Songs such as the sternly imploring “Moths“, the driving “Wars“, with its signature drum march, or the sinister, unfathomable “Buried” or “Foregone” may be mentioned as cornerstones of an album that, due to its quality and diversity, bears the potential earmarks of a future classic.

Lyrically, “Realms” mirrors the ominous, awe-inspiring character of the music; the tales on the album lie somewhere between this sphere and the unseen worlds before and beyond. Darkher songs reveal Wissenberg’s relationship with fear, death and spirituality and question how love can connect souls from past, present and future. “At times, I witnessed happenings“, Wissenberg points out with respect to the title. “Amidst the immense sadness brought upon by grief, these signs were both uplifting and magical, and this compounded my belief in other ‘Realms’“. If you have listened to and explored “Realms“, you can begin to sense what Jayn is talking about. ‘Realms’ draws you in so well that you won’t realize its creators have been broadcasting exactly where they’re taking you…
