Denver tech death unit Vale of Pnath recently announced that they will drop their new album, Between The Worlds of Life and Death, on May 24th via Willowtip Records

Along with the album announcement, the band shared a music video for their latest single, "Burning Light."

Vale of Pnath are hoping to continue the trajectory set by their last EP, Accursed, mixing their tech death sound with a blackened metal approach. 

The band says:

It's been 5 years since our last release, Accursed. The EP really was a new avenue for the band as we leaned further toward a more blackened approach stylistically. Having more of a tech death background, this EP was a way to lead our fans into the next era. Between The Worlds of Life and Death is an album that really is just a continuation of what we started with Accursed. It captures the band's core sound, but also brings a newer and bold take on this brand of metal. We want this to be the most approachable album we have made for metal fans. We want people to put this on and be sucked in immediately, yet keep coming back for more.

Between The Worlds of Life and Death tracklisting:

  1. The Forgotten Path (Intro)
  2. Silent Prayer
  3. Soul Offering
  4. Shadow
  5. Uncertain Tomorrow
  6. Beneath Ashen Skies
  7. No Return, No Regret
  8. Echoes Of The Past (Interlude)
  9. Burning Light

The lineup features Ken Scorceron on vocals/guitar, plus Vance Valenzuela on guitar, Gabe Seeber on drums, and Austin Rolla on bass. The album also features guest appearances from Michael Wilson, Donny Burbage (Cradle of Filth, Aether Realm), Miles Dimitri Baker (Interloper), Matthew Brown (Demon King), and Christian Muenzner (Necrophagist, Obscura, Alkaloid). 

Additionally, Vale of Pnath recently announced they will hit the road in May for a U.S. tour alongside co-headliners Abigail Williams and special guests Summoning The Lich

I hate to say this as a fan since their first EP....the band peaked with The Prodigal Empire (2011). It is not a perfect album. But, it is super f*cking dope regardless and it's best tracks are why I keep going back to it. I've never felt a strong desire to put Vale of Pnath - II on. I got it early as a reviewer. I spun it a lot of times. Wasn't the same music. The last EP was a similar failure. Just lean into Behemoth-Worship. They've lost the plot. The new single is crap as well. It's sad. Because I really feel strongly that their debut album, The Prodigial Empire, was and remains....a gem.

Band has almost completely turned over since their last release. This just sounds like Ken's Abigail Williams project now.
