Inglorious Darkness


Gothic Metal icons CREMATORY are an undeniable institution. Now, with more than 30 years in the scene, the band continues to showcase why they are heralded as one of the best of the genre with their new album, Inglorious Darkness, out May 27, 2022 via Napalm Records. After releasing 15 studio albums, three live albums, various compilations and splits, and performing hundreds of headliner shows and festivals around the globe, the band returns to their German roots on the album – not only presenting new songs performed in German, but furthermore, releasing a German version of their trademark track “Tears of Time”, now entitled “Tränen der Zeit”. The pioneering track, originally released on the band’s 1995 stunner Illusions, was an allover gamechanger in the Gothic Metal genre, and now makes its triumphant return on Inglorious Darkness. Inglorious Darkness is chock full of dark and resonating hymns, setting off with title track “Inglorious Darkness” – a true Gothic Metal anthem and a worthy opener that sets the mood for what’s to come...
