In Europe last Friday was the longest day of the year, followed by a short magical night: Midsummer. It’s the perfect time to celebrate with flowers and plants, lightheartedly and with your loved ones in ecstatic joy. But this year, something dark lurks under the flower wreaths – ready to herald the uprising of the most brutal metal force that Denmark ever unleashed into the world.
Praised as one of the most promising and interesting bands in the Danish deathcore scene, CABAL gets ready to enter a new level in their so-far impressive career that recently has been crowned by pumped liveshows alongside bands like LORNA SHORE or NASTY. CABAL announced their new long-player Magno Interitus that will be released on October 21st via Nuclear Blast.
“The album Magno Interitus – which translates to the great decay, was written during the pandemic when we felt like everything was falling apart right in front of us, both in grand scheme of things but also on a much more personal level. So most of the songs serve as an outlet for all of the emotions we’ve felt during this time, which is also why this might not be the most uplifting album ever produced. The album was recorded, produced and mixed and mastered by our very own Chris Kreutzfeldt.”
The album will be available as Digipak [limited edition], Black Single LP, Crystal Clear with Gold Single LP [limited to 500 units, Mailorder + Wholesale exclusive], Gold + Black Marbled Single LP [limited to 500 units, USA exclusive], Crystal Clear with Red + Black Splatter Single LP [limited to 300 units, bandshop exclusives] and on all streaming platforms.

CABAL is one of the most brutal and promising heavy acts hailing from Copenhagen, Denmark. The band aims to create a visceral and doom-laden atmosphere throughout both their music and visual expression. The production is crystal clear, whilst the songwriting draws inspiration from everything from black and death metal to djent and hardcore.
Since the release of their debut album Mark of Rot in 2018, the young band has managed to make a name for themselves in both Denmark and the rest of the world by playing renowned festivals like Copenhell, Roskilde Festival, Euroblast Festival and Complexity Fest as well as touring in Europe, Japan and North America.
CABAL released the sophomore album Drag Me Down on April 2
020 – a dark descent into a personal hell brought to life by crushing instrumentals, an oppressive atmosphere and dark personal lyrics delivered with relentless intensity, while still leaving room for experimentation and expansion of CABAL‘s signature sound. Add to this guest appearances from metal titans TRIVIUM‘s Matt Heafy, rising metalcore stars POLARIS‘ Jamie Hails and Denmark’s Blackgaze darlings MØL‘s Kim Song Sternkopf and there is no doubt that CABAL is a band with friends in every corner of the metal scene.
