Taken from their forthcoming album ‘Mournography’, UK goth rockers Her Despair have unleashed a new video for ‘Blaspheme With Me’. The track has a pinch of metal, but the over-riding mood is a very retro one, with the band carrying more influence from Bauhaus and Sisters of Mercy than HIM or Type O Negative.
Combining a busy and melodic tune with a slightly darker vocal, mournfulness rarely sounded so good and if you still love gothic music from the 80s, there’s something for you to enjoy.
The full press release and video can be found below.
British goth metal band HER DESPAIR have just released a haunting new video for their track “Blaspheme With Me”. The song is taken from their upcoming release Mournography, which will be released in July.
The band commented “For us, “Blaspheme With Me” represents the very essence of HER DESPAIR. It combines gothic rock with flashes of punk and metal, and glides between our two predominant lyrical themes: the erotic and the theologic. Mourning has broken.”
About Her Despair
Her Despair, formed in 2015, began as a solo project with the release of debut album “Hymns For the Hopeless.” Showcasing the melodramatic sound and aesthetic of gothic music with the accessibility of punk and the stylings of heavy metal, the solo studio project has subsequently evolved into the current full line-up. With nods toward fellow countrymen The Sisters of Mercy and Paradise Lost, to bands such as HIM and Rammstein, the band create their own unique twist on the styles that they are influenced by.
“Mournography,” the brand new follow-up EP and first as a full-fledged band, was recently completed by the band with Matt Bew at Whitehouse Studios (Reading, UK), and is described as such:
“Mournography is an exploration into the mysteries of tragedy, blasphemy, death, and love; both literally and figuratively. The mourning of some, the lust of others. These songs praise and pervert the Word of God simultaneously: providing a deeply unsettling spiritual experience set to a bleak backdrop of melancholia.”
From their location in Berkshire UK, the band is set to unleash new convocations upon locations which have included London, Oxford, Bournemouth and Reading. Continuing to expand their fan base throughout live performances, clouds of smoke and lights theatrically immerse the audience, providing a perfect setting to experience the compelling material.
