Italian black metallers Stormcrow will release their third album, Path to Ascension on May 31 via Time To Kill Records. Now, the band has shared their new single, “Dark Existence”, which you can listen to below.

Formed in Northern Italy in 1997, the band is no secret to genre enthusiasts thanks to a couple of well-received albums and European tours with Dark Funeral, Enthroned, Shining and many more. But now their big moment in the spotlight has arrived – Stormcrow are ready for the final breakthrough with their new album “Path To Ascension”.

The Italian outfit has kept the black flame burning for over 20 years simply out of worship and respect for the genre. Undoubtedly, they share some of the same DNA as the iconic black metal bands that came before them, and while their technical prowess adds a more than impressive flourish, they operate by the rule of “don’t overcomplicate for the sake of overcomplicating”. Keeping the theatrics to a minimum has resulted in a lean, sharp album that embodies the blueprint of old-school black metal, embracing both melody and epic narrative.
