German death metal band Deserted Fear releases their new cover track “Artifacts of the Black Rain,” originally performed by Swedish melodic death metal pioneers In Flames on ‘The Jester Race’ (1996). The track is featured as a B-side on the band’s exclusive, limited (500x copies) 7 inch, which was recorded, mixed and mastered by Deserted Fear’s very own Fabian Hildebrandt at Eisensound Studio. Purchase and stream “Artifacts of the Black Rain,” HERE.
“For the B-Side of the EP we wanted to cover a song from another band, something we did live all the time in our early days because we didn’t have enough own songs to play a full set, haha. And in the studio we also didn’t cover a song in a long time!,” states Hildebrandt about the release.
Mahne adds, “We chose an old In Flames song, because not only for us, but also for many other bands our age, the early In Flames albums were very influential and we learned a lot from them, especially on the guitar!”
The video for the band’s previously released single “Funeral Of The Earth,” created by Vollvincent / vollvincent.com, can be watched HERE. The limited edition 7-inch release of “Funeral Of The Earth” is also available to purchase, HERE, and can be purchased digitally, HERE.
Deserted Fear’s latest, 4th studio album Drowned By Humanity was released in February 2019 worldwide via Century Media Records and entered the official album sales charts at #20 in Germany upon release. The album as well as the band’s back catalogue can still be purchased, HERE.
