The official lyric video for the song "Catharsis" from the German Melodic Death Metal band BURIAL VAULT can be seen below. The track comes off the band's second full-length album Incendium, which will be released on May 24 via Apostasy Records.
The album is designed as a closed concept which is heavily inspired
by parts of the classic dystopian novel "Fahrenheit 451" by Ray
Bradbury. Here, the quintet uses both the music as well as the texts as
a medium to tell the transformation of a man in a near future from a
blind follower to a critical opponent in four action-packed chapters.
Recorded at the Soundlodge Studio with producer Joerg Uken
(Dew-Scented, Nightfall, God Dethroned a.o.) the listeners get melodic
Death Metal with appropriate technical and progressive influences and
also subtle Black Metal-esque and acoustic moments.
Chapter I: 01. The Stench Of Burning Thoughts 02. A Blind Follower And A Watchful Hound
Chapter II: 03. Soil & Green 04. Peculiar 05. The Nightly Horror 06. Prelude To Peripety 07. Fatal Accident
Chapter III: 08. Struggling Doubt 09. Moment Of Truth 10. Awareness

Vault was founded in 2006. The musical direction can be described as
Melodic Death Metal spiced with Black Metal, Thrash Metal and some
progressive influences.The band refers to many different atmospheres
and topics within their music. Abysses of humanity and history are the
lyrical background of their tunes which have a great balance between
brutal, melodic and atmospheric parts.
Vault has made appearances at "Legacyfest 2009" and "Metalfest
Germany 2010" and has shared stages with the likes of Drone, Jack
Slater, Lay Down Rotten, Cripper, Torture Squad and Sinister (o.a.).
After two EPs: - There Is No Resort and Come To Grief - Burial Vault released their full-length debut, Ekpyrosis (Periodic Destruction), on Apostasy Records in 2012. A year later the band returns with Incendium.
