DEN SAAKALDTE Stream New Song

Norwegian black metal act DEN SAAKALDTE launch a debut track from their upcoming album Kapittel II: Faen i Helvete, set to be released on May 27 in Europe and June 10 in North America via Agonia Records. The song is entitled Din Siste Dag and is available for listening at YouTube: http://youtu.be/Xwz2GyBIeOA

DEN SAAKALDTE steps out of the shadows after five long years of strengthening their dark musical identity and defining a more grim musical approach. Built upon intense and heavy emotions and featuring members of Gorgoroth, 1349, Koldbrann and Nidingr, Kapittel II: Faen i Helvete feels as the band’s most complete work to date. The album combines doom and black metal elements with clean vocals, spoken parts and obscure atmosphere. Eldur (Fortid) replaced Niklas (Shining) on vocals.

The successor to All Hail Pessimism (2009) was recorded in Strand Studio in February 2014. The album will be available as a 3 panel digipack CD, digitally and on vinyl (in three versions: black, blue and red).

Pre-orders are available: https://www.agoniarecords.com/index.php?pos=shop&lang=en

Tracklist:
1. Din Siste dag
2. Forbanna Idioter
3. Du Selvproklamerte Misjonær
4. Endeløst Øde
5. Djevelens Verk
6. Som Ett Arr på Sjelen
7. Ondskapens Nødvendighet

Line-up:
Sykelig – guitars
Tjalve – guitars and backing vocals
Seidemann – bass
Eldur – vocals
Tybalt – drums

KOLDBRANN Album Available Now

Black metal threat KOLDBRANN are streaming their new album, Vertigo in it’s entirety here.

KOLDBRANN have been spearheading the Norwegian underground black metal scene since their founding in 2001. Together with compatriots such as 1349, URGEHAL and others, the band remained true to the early spirit of the genre. Their brand new full-length sees KOLDBRANN drawing deep from their cold, raw black roots, while simultaneously exploring new, vintage sonic territory.

On the album, the band states:

“While KOLDBRANN has always paid tribute to the early pioneers of nordic Black Metal, the band has throughout its existence strived to retain a distinct identity. Spending our formative years in relative isolation in Drammen, away from the interference of any metal scene, we learnt to do things our own way from the get-go. In that respect, our third album, VERTIGO, represents a brand new chapter in the band´s history. While retaining a substantial share of uncanny groove, the album also explores more doom-ridden, and progressive soundscapes than on our earlier works. It still sounds very much like KOLDBRANN, but with a fuller, more complete flavor. Rest assured: Never have we put so much work and personal investments into an album. Never have we gone to greater lengths to chisel out each composition to suit our aural visions. It has been a long and winding road, and countless hours of tribulation. But that is now of the past. VERTIGO is here!”
