THE COMMITTEE: new album out on May the 29th!

The Committee announced that the new album, ‘UTOPIAN DECEPTION‘ will be released by Folter Records on cd and vinyl next May the 29th 2020.

The Committee official statement:

“Our Friends and Supporters. The work on our full lenght album “Utopian Deception” is finally complete. We started composing 3 years ago and the lyrics were completed in 2019. This will be again a fictional story that’s dedicated to the occult world of social engineering technology.

As we are are seing division ( even in the scene ) that borders on hostility and irrationality, we have chosen to remain as objective as possible in order to make this album interesting. As usual no politics, just the story. In the spirit of cooperation we have combined forces with 3 very talented graphic artist, as well as a new guest vocalist. They have our upmost gratitude for trying to immortalize such difficult material.

We will do our best to post the music asap. For now more news will come from our label.

Again we thank you for your patience and support!”

To sweeten the wait, you can have a good taste of the upcoming album, listening to the first lyric video already available: Ossification

Here the band’s statement:

“…And the agonizing wait once again comes to an end.

We’re proud to announce that our seventh full-length album, ‘Under a Godless Veil’, will be out on October 30, 2020, via Napalm Records.

Under a Godless Veil is by far the most diverse album the band has created. Inspired by some of the music closest to Johan’s heart; everything from traditional Doom to scaled-down, Gothic rock-inspired pieces and more. Some will perhaps describe the songs as more refined and meditative. Some ambient elements have been added to the mix without overshadowing the traditional characteristics that define DRACONIAN.
Resonating with the compositions, Anders’s lyrical direction is ambiguous and a progression of the first two-three albums, yet more subtle while embracing the Gnostic philosophy more directly. One could say Under a Godless Veil is an act of contemplation; About living and dying and remembering who we are in a strange, abrasive world far from home.”
