The New Dark Age
“The New Dark Age” is the third studio album by the Finnish Heavy Metal band KIUAS. The album was released through Spinefarm Records on March 12, 2008 for Finland with new dates to be announced for other areas. The song, “Conqueror“, directed by Owe Lingwall was shot as a music video on February 18, 2008. “Of Sacrifice, Loss and Reward” was released on February 20 as a single in Finland and topped the Finnish charts at number 1. The single will include two other songs and a Japanese bonus track exclusively to the single and Japan only. The album cover was designed by Niklas Sundin of Cabin Fever Media, and guitarist for Dark Tranquillity. It is of an original renaissance woodcut illustration with the portrayal of KIUAS‘ band members as the “five” Horsemen of the Apocalypse. A second music video for “The Decaying Doctrine” was again directed by Owe Lingwall.
