In the year 2017, a spark was enkindled in the German city of the lion, blazed and invoked the covenant of Flame, Dear Flame. In a time when the significance of words has deteriorated, the endeavor can only be the creation of meaningful music that works purely in conjunction with profound and narrative lyrics. The result is a unique fusing of Epic Doom Metal and Occult Rock with natural and clear female vocals.

Flame, Dear Flame present their first offering on April 5, 2019. Divided into three parts with a total duration of 21 minutes, ‘The Millennial Heartbeat’ is the genesis of the ocean and the thanatography of the land, a testimony of the forces of nature and its frailty alike.

Come autumn, the flame will be spread to a few chosen stages across the country, a smouldering fire to be fostered by the wind.

For those who bow to the might of Hammerheart-era Bathory, early Manowar, Solstice and Atlantean Kodex, but also appreciate the depth of Warning and early While Heaven Wept.

“The vocal melodies carry away, the guitar creates a lot of light and shadow, and the drums set the right accents.” – Götz Kühnemund, Deaf Forever #28
