THE DEVIL’S TRADE releases live video for ‘Dreams from the Rot’

Dark singer-songwriter act THE DEVIL’S TRADE is now releasing a brand new live video for the track ‘Dreams for the Rot’! The video was shot during the live performance at the prestigious Roadburn Redux festival last year, and celebrates the upcoming live performances with DARKHER which are scheduled for April. The video can now be viewed via the official Season of Mist YouTube channel HERE.

The full performance of the show will be released on all digital platforms on April 15, 2022.

Mastermind Dávid Makó comments on the video: “Roadburn Redux got me in a period when you could not really complain as everyone was hurt in a way and we all had to face the same or similar struggles and losses. It happened to be the lowest period of my life so far where dark and sad meant nothing anymore I just got completely empty hopeless and finally I got to a point where I had to find professional support to be able to get up and move on. Roadburn Redux was one of the very few things that could give me a reason to try to act like everything was normal while inside I was completely dead. I am so grateful for this opportunity and so glad to be able to share this concert with you all! Keep on going!

The Iron Peak; a mystical place where one once found his long lost peace total silence and home. Where he would return when his time to come to pass away. A place that has became a materialization of everlasting freedom cut from society and all earthly struggles. As ancient beliefs says heaven is a place where we found peace with our loved ones in life the Iron Peak is some kind of heaven.

Listen to the call of the Iron Peak as it is calling for you to find your true self in a world you want to be isolated from. It is calling for you to make peace with yourself, with the inevitable end. It is calling for Hungarian singer-songwriter Dávid Makó, who redefined himself as THE DEVIL’S TRADE a few years ago, embarking on a long journey with his deeply personal and dark, sometimes doom infused folk songs.

Be it the folk of the Appalachians, the tales of Hungarian and Transylvanian traditionals, THE DEVIL’S TRADE fuses his past of metal and his roots laying deep in the folk songs of his immediate surroundings.

Very much like how the Iron Peak, a mountaintop both metaphorical and literal is calling for Makó, he is calling for you to share his rituals of loves and hopes lost and found along the pilgrimage of his. It is after all, the journey itself that matters the most, and how you adapt. From basements in his hometown of Budapest, to all corners of Europe, stages small and big, THE DEVIL’S TRADE has been relentlessly walking on his path finding his voice and calling, and that is to let listeners to glimpse into himself through his heart wrenching songs.

His new album, and his debut for Season of Mist, titled ‘The Call of the Iron Peak’ will be released on August 28th 2020, preceded by a tour in April 2021 alongside UK singer-songwriter Darkher and Swedish neofolk/ambient artist Forndom.
