Written by Lexi on 7th November 2019
The end is drawing near as STRIGOI are set to release their debut album Abandon All Faith on November 22nd via Nuclear Blast. Today, the duo has launched another trailer giving fans insight into the record’s creative process.
The 12-song-debut was recorded and mixed at Greg’s Black Planet Studio between January and March 2019. The English duo announced the album alongside their haunting first single, ‘Phantoms’. Watch the official video for ‘Phantoms‘:
Named after the troubled spirits in Romanian mythology who could rise from the grave and assume an entirely different form, STRIGOI‘s bassist Chris Casket was also tasked with writing the lyrics for the new project. Mackintosh gave him simple thematic guidelines: attack organized religion, sparingly discuss grief and dive into the countless horrible things that humanity continues to inflict upon itself.
