NIDINGR Conjure Up New Single

Norwegian black metal conjurers NIDINGR unveilled the second single, Vim Patior from their imminent new full-length, Greatest Of Deceivers.

Notes guitarist, Teloch of the new tune:

“Vim Patior contains all the elements you all love about NIDINGR: blastbeats, shredding guitars, sweet ass bass lines, guttural vocals, catchy riffing without turning your ears to cheese. But at the same time we introduce some of the new elements we are doing all over the new album: riffs that will make you puke blood and cry.”

Vim Patior is currently available for your unholy listening pleasures HERE.

NIDINGR’s Greatest Of Deceivers is scheduled to detonate in North America on November 20, 2012. The recent Indie Recordings signees feature within their illustrious ranks past and present members of Mayhem, Gorgoroth, DHG (Dødheimsgard), 1349 and God Seed, among others, and have become notorious for their efficiently complex songwriting, dissonant, yet infinitely catchy riff onslaughts and maniacal tempos.

G.O.D. was recorded at Crystal Canyon Studios in Oslo, home to a host of prominent Norwegian acts including cult experimentalists Ulver, produced by Teloch, mixed by Anders Møller (Kitchie Kitchie Ki Me O, Euroboys, 120 Days, Turbonegro, etc.) and mastered by Jaime Gomez Arellano at Orgone Studios. Their third full-length continues the theme from Sorrow Infinite And Darkness, based on Enochian texts. As on the previous album, ten Enochian Æthyrs are evoked through the course of the album.

Decibel Magazine recently hosted a premiere of the title track. If you missed it, it’s still available at THIS LOCATION.

Pre-order Greatest Of Deceivers HERE.

GOD SEED Premiere New Video

 Alt Live comes off the recently released full-length GOD SEED album, I Begin. Produced by Mats Willassen in the depths of the Norwegian wilderness, it truly encompasses the ambiance and spirit of the track.

The video is also being premiered at Metalhammer.co.uk in the UK, Metal-hammer.de in Germany and VS-webzine.com in France.

Among the most anticipated black metal releases in recent memory, I Begin was unleashed stateside on October 22 through Indie Recordings and continues to earn hails and horns domestically and abroad.

Revolver commends the album in a 4/5 review saying:

“Rather than put out more Burzum-influenced black-metal backwash, they’ve interpolated elements of gloom-rock, prog, and even experimental electronics into their classic-black collages, and, as improbable as it may seem, the variety works” 

About.com notes:

“The craving to experiment is obvious throughout, with warm vintage tones clashing with icy avant-hues. Yet the album’s adventurousness never obscures its pitch-black heart; GOD SEED ensures the frosty assault of black metal is accentuated in any eccentric diversions”

Blistering adds:

“You couldn’t necessarily find the GOD SEED dudes at fault for wanting to continue down the (left-hand) path walked during their time with Gorgoroth, yet I Begin will enter the win column because of its unpredictable nature. In essence, the ‘70s vibe put out coalesces with the bleak and bloody black metal of Gorgoroth’s ‘00s output, and when you stop to compare the respective albums, is probably better than what Gorogorth was putting out a decade ago.”

Exclaim agrees:

I Begin is an ambitious and powerful debut, which builds on the foundation of the band members’ notable pedigrees, but is also not content to rest on those laurels, pushing beyond the comfort zone of their rasping, bombastic black metal past into something more intricate.”

The album’s first single, This From The Past, premiered via esteemed music portal, Pitchfork. If you missed it, check it out HERE.

GOD SEED is currently on the Creatures From The Black Abyss Tour 2012 alongside Cradle Of Filth.

GOD SEED features within its ranks Gaahl, King Ov Hell, Geir (Dimmu Borgir), Lost (Grimfist), Sir (Trelldom, Djerv) and Kenneth (Motorpsycho) and I Begin is the first studio album King and Gaahl have released together since Gorgoroth’s Ad Majorem Sathanas Gloriam.
