British ambient metal/post-hardcore band Devil Sold His Soul are gearing up for the release of their forthcoming, just-announced new album Empire Of Light with the first new bit of music we’ve heard from them since 2010’s Blessed & Cursed. The track is called ‘No Remorse, No Regrets‘, and marks a return to the harder, edge displayed on earlier albums, with vocalist Ed Gibbs’ caustic vocals carrying the song right through until a small section of clean singing right at the end.
I’ve always enjoyed the hell out of these guys – both on record and live – as they have a knack for creating epic atmospheric soundscapes with their music – as well as writing some killer riffs.
Of the new album, vocalist Ed Gibb said, in the spirit of Rocky, that “The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows”, and the album is about being strong and persevering through trying times.

Empire Of Light is currently on course for a September 17th release through Small Town Records, and promises to be a raucous bag of fun. In the meantime, the band will be playing Hevy Fest and Pukkelpop in August, and will also be touring this winter.
