Blackened Heavy Metal outfit Cloak have partnered with Black Metal Promotion for the advanced stream of their upcoming full-length album Black Flame Eternal, which the band feels is a statement of spiritual empowerment. The record is due this Friday, May 26, 2023.
With more than two years in the making, we’re ready to release the new era of the band into the world with fire and fury! Today we present to you the full stream of our third album “Black Flame Eternal”. Hail to the true supporters, we’ve only just begun…
Cloak will also be hitting the road for a run of live shows in support of the record’s release. In addition, the band will be hosting an album listening party this Saturday, May 27, 2023 in conjunction with their appearance at Hell in the Harbor Festival in Baltimore, MD. The official after party will take place at Angel’s Rock Bar and will be headlined by label-mates TOMBS.
Cloak frontman Scott Taysom says of the record’s underlying philosophy:
All of our albums are created with a spiritual focus, dealing with how we see life, death, and everything in between. I think the earlier records dealt more with the mysteries that surrounded delving deeper into the world of dark spirituality, whereas the new material has taken what we’ve learned and used it to move forward with force. Black Flame Eternal is a statement of spiritual empowerment in every sense. For the first time we want people to grasp on to this sentiment, instead of keeping it completely personal within our world of Cloak. The themes and the sheer power can be felt much more within the songs that this album contains.
