Since 2016, Missouri’s Vaultwraith have combined evil heavy metal with the sleaze of speed metal, the swagger of doom, and the Satanic prowess of black and death metal into a formidable and intoxicating sound. Their debut full length, Death is Proof of Satan’s Power, also stood as proof of their own might. With a sound almost sinfully nostalgic, yet the horrormongering quartet never retread hollow ground, always presenting a new take on arcane ideas.
Now, with the release of their sophomore album imminent, the band says they’re “proud to unleash their 2nd full-length album . . . on Halloween 2019 for Hells Headbangers!”
Regarding Light the Candle In Honour of Devils, the band says “we worked harder to craft a darker, heavier and yet more melodic album while at the same time writing both slower and gloomier songs along with the fastest songs we ever did as well. From the opening moody intro to the final fire cracking sounds, we hope the listener is taken on an atmospheric and morbidly thrilling ride of pure horror metal with catchy and memorable songs with some of the most ghastly death/black metal vocals ever. This Halloween… VAULTWRAITH has returned!”
