Dark singer-songwriter act THE DEVIL’S TRADE is now streaming a brand new live video for the highly emotional track ‘Dead Sister’, taken from the album ‘The Call of the Iron Peak’. The video was recorded during the very special release show of the one man’s act in Budapest (HU) last month.
THE DEVIL’S TRADE comment on the video: “After a seven months long hiatus in playing live especially in these times of uncertainty and resignation stepping on a stage was such a moving experience! I know I am amongst the luckiest musicians to have the chance to do what I love the most and can’t thank enough the people who made this possible. The venue Dürer kert is one of the last independent underground facilities in Hungary that is home for so many musicians and music lovers since 2008. It is now the next victim of the greed of our government. Not only do we have all these beautiful memories of the concerts of the bands we admire or our own shows but a few hundred bands had their rehearsal places and studios here. Both of the last two The Devil’s Trade albums got recorded here. This place was a shelter for us but we have to move out and the venue has a hopeless future too. The release show of ‘The Call Of The Iron Peak’ was the last one for me there.”
The Iron Peak; a mystical place where one once found his long lost peace total silence and home. Where he would return when his time to come to pass away. A place that has became a materialization of everlasting freedom cut from society and all earthly struggles. As ancient beliefs says heaven is a place where we found peace with our loved ones in life the Iron Peak is some kind of heaven.
Listen to the call of the Iron Peak as it is calling for you to find your true self in a world you want to be isolated from. It is calling for you to make peace with yourself, with the inevitable end. It is calling for Hungarian singer-songwriter Dávid Makó, who redefined himself as THE DEVIL’S TRADE a few years ago, embarking on a long journey with his deeply personal and dark, sometimes doom infused folk songs.
Be it the folk of the Appalachians, the tales of Hungarian and Transylvanian traditionals, THE DEVIL’S TRADE fuses his past of metal and his roots laying deep in the folk songs of his immediate surroundings.
Very much like how the Iron Peak, a mountaintop both metaphorical and literal is calling for Makó, he is calling for you to share his rituals of loves and hopes lost and found along the pilgrimage of his. It is after all, the journey itself that matters the most, and how you adapt. From basements in his hometown of Budapest, to all corners of Europe, stages small and big, THE DEVIL’S TRADE has been relentlessly walking on his path finding his voice and calling, and that is to let listeners to glimpse into himself through his heart wrenching songs.
His new album, and his debut for Season of Mist, titled ‘The Call of the Iron Peak’ will be released on August 28th 2020, preceded by a tour in April 2021 alongside UK singer-songwriter Darkher and Swedish neofolk/ambient artist Forndom.
