NOCTURNAL RITES Debut “A Heart As Black As Coal” Music Video

Nocturnal Rites will release their first new album since 2007's The 8th Sin, entitled Phoenix, on September 29th. A video for the song "A Heart As Black As Coal" showcases the new lineup in a performance setting for the first time.

“After an almost ten year long hiatus, we figured a stylish yet basic performance video would be the way to go. Even though performing in a music video is utterly different from being on stage, it still shows what we’re all about - playing and having a blast doing so", the band states.

Phoenix will be available as CD, Digipak, clear/blue/black marbled Vinyl (limited to 250 units) and clear orange Vinyl (limited to 250 units). Pre-order Phoenix here.
