1914 reveal details for next full-length and premiere new song

Ukrainian Black Metal band Ukraine 1914 have just revealed the title, tracklist, cover art and release date for their upcoming full-length. The new album, which is titled "Where Fear and Weapons Meet", is due for release on the 22nd of October via German label Napalm Records.

Together with the announcement, the first single from the album was made in the form of a lyric video. Check out "...And A Cross Now Marks His Place" below:


The label had this to say regarding the new single:

Massive first single "...And a Cross Now Marks His Place" already marks an absolute highlight, as this stamping outburst features none other than Paradise Lost icon Nick Holmes, whose pervasive delivery matches with 1914’s mastermind Hptm. Ditmar Kumarberg’s (9. Westpreußisches Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 176) vocal harshness.

Vocalist Ditmar Kumarberg elaborated on the meaning behind the song:

The story behind "...And A Cross Now Marks His Place" totally captured me: This is the real letter, handwritten by the British officer to the mother of a soldier who died in action. This was not a standard form sent in thousands, but more like a personal message. He describes the way her son died, tells words of consolation, and emphasizes how the Crown is proud of him, another victim of the massacre between Empires.

1914 were founded in Lviv, Ukraine in 2014, and as you may have already guessed, they deal exclusively with the strife, death, destruction and inhumanity associated with WWI. "Where Fear and Weapons Meet" will mark the band's third full-length, and a follow-up to their acclaimed 2018 effort, "The Blind Leading the Blind". The complete tracklist for the new album is as follows:

  1. War In
  2. FN .380 ACP#19074
  3. Vimy Ridge (In Memory of Filip Konowal)
  4. Pillars of Fire (The Battle of Messines)
  5. Don't Tread on Me (Harlem Hellfighters)
  6. Coward
  7. ...and a Cross Now Marks His Place
  8. Corps d'Autos-Canons-Mitrailleuses (A.C.M)
  9. Mit Gott für König und Vaterland
  10. The Green Fields of France
  11. War Out

Here's a closer look at the new artwork, continuing the theme from the previous release:
