Enfold Darkness Change Vocalists, Prepare to Finish New Album

If you’re a fan of Enfold Darkness, I’ve got some good news and bad news for you. The bad news: Matt Brown, vocalist and founder of the monstrous death metal group, has left the band that he birthed. The good news: Enfold Darkness already have a replacement vocalist lined up in the form of Andy Nelson, formerly of Abysmal Dawn. Better news: the band is set to enter the studio in February to knock out vocals for the new album.

The news was dropped late yesterday evening via Enfold Darkness’ Facebook page. You can read the whole post below, including Brown’s reasons for leaving and the band’s palpable excitement to have Nelson on board.

Alot of you have been asking about updates on the album. Some of these may not make you very happy, but we are doing what it takes to make sure that you are getting a solid product. Matt Brown – founder of Enfold Darkness – has left the band for personal reasons. He has issued the following statement: “Today is the day a change is made. After grinding away for 11 years with this project, I have decided to set it down on my end in order to pursue other interests in life. I apologize to anyone who was looking forward to hearing my vocals on the new record, but I have a feeling that you will enjoy my successor’s just as much (if not more).Thank you to everyone who has supported me and this band. It was a really fun and interesting ride. Without further adieu, I welcome my replacement to the ‘Fold: the very talented Andy Nelson (formerly of Abysmal Dawn)!”With all of that being said, vocals are the last step to having a completed record. We are set to start recording them in February. Enjoy this short clip of Andy listening to his tryout on the way home from the studio!Thanks for all the support. We are nothing without you all.~Elijah and Enfold Darkness P.S. Keep it 6

If you want to hear Nelson’s tryout, check out that video included in the Facebook post.

If you feel like you’ve been waiting forever to hear the follow-up to 2009’s Our Cursed Rapture, the time of reckoning is almost upon you. If you have no idea who Enfold Darkness are, just think Abysmal Dawn and Black Dahlia Murder-style death metal with just a wee bit more grit thrown in for good measure. I’m curious to see if Enfold Darkness becomes even more like Abysmal Dawn on the new album due to Nelson’s addition. I suppose we’ll find out soon enough. If you still haven’t heard Enfold Darkness, you can check out their most recent track below, 2015’s “The Dirge of the Surrogate Invictus”

Stay up to date with progress on the new record over at the band’s Facebook page. If you’re excited for the new jams, drop them a like and tell them the Toilet said, “Howdy!”

    That logo is very Celtic Frostish.

    • Dubs

      I like the logo. Music is okay. Probably not your thing. Some dudes in the FB group seemed to be pumped though.

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        Is this techy stuff?

        • Dubs

          Kind of.

  • Dubs

    I can see the bandcamp embed isn’t working. Trying to figure out why.

  • Spear

    That kinda sucks, but I’m glad the band didn’t (en)fold.

    ahuehuehuehuehue

    • ME GORAK B.C.™

      NEW SONG ROCKS!!!!!!!!

  • say what you will about Abysmal Dawn (and for many of you it will be negative), but Andy Nelson is a darn good death metal guitarist.

    • Scrimm

      I had an old album I remember liking ok but the more recent stuff I checked out didn’t do much for me.

          • That is what they say!

          • Really? With this weather on the East?

            Thing is very delicate on the north of South América. I have some flu symptons and we are hoping I don’t get the fucking virus.

            We have lived with dengue and chikungunya all these years, but this Zika disease is very delicate because the malformations. I am amazed on how many baby loss has been in these months.

          • Dubs

            And crazy US moms want to stop giving kids vaccines. Can you believe that?

          • Brazil and Venezuela are having a HARD time with this, besides the El Niño crazy weather and our stupid politricks.

            Colombia is having Zika disease, but at least they have a much more stable economy right now.

            Soo much of that crap when I worked at the schools. Had a ton of parents refuse them and sign the exemption forms.

          • Stanley

            It seems so. It looks like Chile and Canada are the only countries that do that have the specific type of mosquito that spreads the disease. I hope you start feeling better but in the meantime, you should probably hold off getting it on with your Mrs as there was one reported case of the virus being spread by semen!

      • there’s a frat guy who only knows “Wish You Were Here” on acoustic guitar ready to take your side

        • ME GORAK B.C.™

          GRANDPA GUITARZ NOT BROOTAL!!!!!!! SMASH FRAT GUY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • Dubs

            I never tire of this. Probably because I knew too many guitar bros in college.

          • It’s a real classic Dubz. One of my all time favorite movie scenes.

          • my first dorm-mate was a frat guy who played acoustic guitar. i would silently shed a tear, whilst he layed with woman; mere feet away from me — a woman whom he cajoled by playing her “Satellite” by Dave Matthews Band

          • JWEG

            Sometimes I’ve thought of becoming a ukulele-wielding parody of the guitar-playing-frat-guy, who exists here on campus even though we don’t even have fraternities (due to long-standing anti-discrimination bylaw).

            I’m not sure I’d be any more – and probably less – appreciated for my bit of performance-art / musical mockery. Especially if nobody ‘got’ my message.

          • the kind of girls who fell for my ex-roommate’s schtick wouldn’t get your message… and they’d all be yours!

          • Waynecro

            This kind of bullshit degrades us all.

        • Treebeard, Father of Fangorn

          I once happened upon a member of the Fraternian race and he regaled me with a rendition of “Wonder Wall.”

        Different kinds of shit?

    • STOP BEING SALTY, ENJOY YOUR ICE CREAMS AND HEMORRHOIDS CREAMS!

    • Treebeard, Father of Fangorn

      Maybe these “commenters,” as your people are known, are a hasty bunch. We ents never make a decision without first considering the options. Throooommmmm.

  • Digging that track, W. Anyone have further recommendations for them?

  • Our Cursed Rapture has never left my rotation. The wait for new stuff from them has almost been as painful as the wait for new Vale of Pnath

  • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

    3:36 is that you Dani Filth?

    • I was going to comment the same. It isn’t that bad, I think.

  • RustyShackleford

    Ooooo never heard this band but I dig it. Also unrelated but really enjoying the chicken pita wrap im having for lunch right now and just wanted to share. Lunch >>>>>>

    Yup.

  • Waynecro

    Enfold Darkness and Abysmal Dawn both kick ass.

  • Phoenix of the House Tendies

    Literally the only band on Sumerian I can tolerate.

    If you can release that new album already guys, that’ll be great.
