Dark Essence Records has inked a deal with Blackgazers AVAST, which will see the label release the band’s debut full-length album in the Autumn.

Hailing from Stavanger, in Norway, AVAST is a band that reviewers and promoters place in a variety of genres, with Blackgaze and Post-Black Metal at the forefront.  But it could equally be said that the band’s roots lie in Punk Rock and Hardcore, given that AVAST’s lyrics are not centred around the usual Black Metal themes, but tend more towards a philosophical and poetical take on Social and Environmental issues.

Whichever genre you’d like to put them in, there is, however, absolutely no doubt that AVAST’s lineup of Hans Olaf Myrvang (AGENDA) on bass and vocals Trond Salte (AGENDA) on guitars  and  Ørjan Lund (NAG) on drums,  skilfully fuses the aesthetics of Black Metal with the atmospherics of Post-Rock to create a soundscape that is both breathtaking and mesmerizing.

Having previoiusly released a two-track EP in 2016, AVAST have spent the past year in the recording studios working on their new album “Mother Culture”, a concept album that examines the myths upon which modern civilization is based.  It is a work that addresses the potential for a global catastrophe, and is based on the philosophical novel “Ishmael” by Daniel Quinn.
