SOULBURN vocalist/bassist Twan van Geel checked in with the following comment about the track: "We are proud to present you the opening track from our upcoming album 'Earthless Pagan Spirit'. This song is a classic ode to the supremacy of the blackest of Metal. 'Where Splendid Corpses Are Towering Towards The Sun' ravishes straight through the high hopes of a self-proclaimed righteous people and their plastic vanity. And at the triumph of their death, scorched by the sun of their own divinity, in the serene mist from their ashen skulls, we dance."

Originally SOULBURN emerged after a first demise of Dutch death metal legend Asphyx in the mid 90's, when founding members Eric Daniels (guitars) and Bob Bagchus (drums) looked for a seperate outlet to unleash their mutual obsession with Bathory, Venom and Celtic Frost. After releasing a demo and the cult debut album Feeding On Angels via Century Media Records in 1998, which featured Wannes Gubbels (Pentacle) on vocals/bass, SOULBURN was put to rest when Asphyx returned with On The Wings Of Inferno (2000) with the same line-up. SOULBURN was dead, buried, but not forgotten...as they resurfaced 16 years later in their new line-up featuring the coremembers of Eric Daniels (guitars) and Bob Bagchus (drums), teaming up with Twan van Geel (Flesh Made Sin, Legion Of The Damned) as vocalist/bassist and Remco Kreft (Grand Supreme Blood Court, Nailgun Massacre, Xenomorph) as the second guitarist for the release of The Suffocating Darkness. A video clip for the song "In Suffocating Darkness" can be seen here: https://youtu.be/rOJwm3q5wSw
Earthless Pagan Spirit was recorded in The Netherlands at Harrow Studio, and alsoDouble Noise Studio. It was then mixed and mastered by Magnus "Devo" Andersson at Endarker Studio in Sweden (Marduk, Ofermod, etc.).
