Swedish blackened doom metal act DER TRAUERSCHWAN has revealed more details for the upcoming debut full-length, “Sanguinare Vampiris“.
The album will be released via Soulseller Records on November 25th 2022 on CD, vinyl LP (black & grey) and digitally.
The whole production and artwork was conducted by sole composer and mastermind Tristan Moreau.
Parting ways with HETROERTZEN in late 2021, bassist Ham continued down a path of his own and, as Tristan Moreau, founded DER TRAUERSCHWAN the same year in the Swedish town Västerås. “Sanguinare Vampiris” is the completion of poetry & song that was written during the past two pandemic years. Inspired by the English poets of the romantic era, lyrical themes explore the naked diary of a vampire, and while musically a bleak conjunction between 90’s black- and doom metal, the harmonic teachings of classical musical theory also have a certain impact. With influences reaching from Summoning to My Dying Bride, DER TRAUERSCHWAN provides a unique blend of somber doom- and black metal, with vampiric-themed lyrics expressed through haunting songwriting.
