Norwegian Black Metallers SVARTELDER have today revealed details of their second full-length album “Pits” which is set for release on Dusktone in January 2019.

Founder and frontman Doedsadmiral (NORDJEVEL, DOEDSVANGR, ENEPSIGOS) shared some information about the album:

“Despite there being a theme running through the lyrics of its seven tracks,  “Pits” is not a concept album.  Nor was it ever our intention to make it one. It  is an album that explores ones deepest pain and misery.  That difficult battle to crawl out of the pit of despair and back to the world, only to find that the world has deteriorated into something lifeless and miserable. So much so, in fact, that you just want to let go and once again fall back into your pit .

“With our previous releases, the debut full-length “Pyres” and the “Askbundet” EP, we felt that SVARTELDER was still finding itself, and with “Pits” we have pushed ourselves even further musically.  As an album “Pits” is more, aggressive and more melancholic than its predecessors.  In fact, you could say that “Pits” is more of all that makes SVARTELDER what it is”.

To give fans a taste of what they can expect from “Pits”, SVARTELDER have debuted a track from the album, which can be heard below and on  YouTube at  https://youtu.be/w9oyjXDQDdc

“Pits” was mixed and mastered by Patric at the WSL Studios in France,  whilst much of the recording itself was done in the individual studios of band members Doedsadmiral on vocals,  Tjalve on bass and guitars, Renton on synth and Spektre on drums.

Tracklisting  for “Pits” is as follows:

Recorded in Norway at the Woodscave Studio. and mastered by WSL Studio in France,   “Pyres” is the follow up to SVARTELDER’s  “Askebundet” EP, which hit the streets last year, also on Dusktone.

Aside from founder and frontman Doedsadmiral SVARTELDER’s lineup comprises of Maletoth on bass and guitars, AK-47 on drums, and Kobold on keys.  There is no doubt that the band’s sound  is firmly rooted in black metal, but SVARTELDER’s strength lies in the fact that not only is its lineup vastly experienced, it is also able to draw that experience from a variety of different musical backgrounds and influences.  And this is something that allows the band to mix different elements together, bringing a fresher, more varied,  approach  to the overall sound.

More information about SVARTELDER can be found on the band’s Facebook page at  https://www.facebook.com/Svartelder

The CD version of SVARTELDER’s 2015 EP “Askebunded”  is available from https://dusktone.bandcamp.com/album/svartelder-askebundet-dusk029cd whilst the digital version is available from http://svartelder.bandcamp.com/album/askebundet-ep  .

Originally formed several years ago by frontman Doedsadmiral (NORDJEVEL, DOEDSVANGR),  Norwegian Black Metallers SVARTELDER have hit the ground running after a lengthy hiatus.  With a freshly inked two-album deal with the Dusktone label, and with a new lineup that includes members of CARPATHIAN FOREST, IN THE WOODS, DEN SAAKALDTE, PANTHEON I and OLD FOREST, SVARTELDER are gearing up to bring their particular take on Norwegian Black Metal  to a wider audience.

As well as the two full-length albums, the first of which is set to appear in early 2016, Dusktone will also physically release the band’s “Askebundet” EP, which has so far only appeared in digital format.  The CD version will include an additional bonus track that is not available on the three-track digital version, and will hit the streets later this year.

Aside from Doedsadmiral on vocals, SVARTELDER’s new lineup is comprised of Maletoth on bass and guitars, AK-47 on drums, and Kobold on keys.  The inclusion of these highly skilled and experienced musicians  into SVARTELDER’s ranks  has expanded the band’s original sound, which is firmly rooted in Norwegian Black Metal, into something much more fresh and varied, with each member bring with them  their own set of influences and a variety of different elements.

It’s no mystery as to where the musicians come from, but who each individual musician actually is still remains a mystery to some.  “We really did want to be judged on our output with SVARTELDER as opposed to being compared to the various members’ previous work,” explains Doedsadmiral.  “To that end most of the band members have used different names, but from what we have seen on the internet  and the messages we’re receiving, most people are already guessing who it is that’s doing what!”

The band is currently working on their debut full-length album and more  information about SVARTELDER can be found on the band’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Svartelder

The track “Ingen Vet Jeg Var…”  can be heard below and on the band’s BandCamp page at https://svartelder.bandcamp.com/track/ingen-vet-jeg-var 

Alternatively it can be heard on YouTube below and at https://youtu.be/SUys5Xwjlnc

With a revitalised lineup that includes members of CARPATHIAN FOREST, IN THE WOODS, DEN SAAKALDTE, PANTHEON I and OLD FOREST, and following the release of the “Askebundet” single, Norwegian Black Metallers have bowed to the pressure from fans eager for more material, and self-released a three-track  digital EP.

The EP, which is titled “Askebundet” and comes in at just under 25 minutes, is available from the 10th July on the band’s  BandCamp page.  It is currently being offered at a “name your price” at https://svartelder.bandcamp.com/

Artwork for “Askebundet”  is by Kobold, and track listing is as follows:

1.Askebundet
2.Bleeding Wounds
3.Ingen Vet Jeg Var…

Whilst the calibre and provenance of SVARTELDER’s musicians is no mystery, their individual identities are.  Formed and fronted by Doedsadmiral, the rest of the lineup comprises Maletoth on bass and guitars, AK-47 on drums, and Kobold on keys.  “It’s probably not that hard to work out who is who” commented the band, “but hopefully there will remain a bit of doubt as we really wanted people to judge SVARTELDER’s music  for itself, rather than comparing how one or other of us played or sounded with other bands” .

SVARTELDER also recently posted a teaser video for the “Askebundet” EP which can be seen below and on the band’s YouTube channel at https://youtu.be/sRJ7WGGFHp4

The band are currently working on their debut full-length album and are in search of a label.  More information about SVARTELDER can be found on the band’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Svartelder

Norwegian Black Metallers SVARTELDER, whose lineup includes members of CARPATHIAN FOREST, IN THE WOODS, DEN SAAKALDTE, PANTHEON I and OLD FOREST, have today released a teaser video that gives a taste of what to expect from their upcoming digital EP release.  The EP, which will be titled “Askebundet” is set for release on the 10th July via SVARTELDER’s BandCamp page at https://svartelder.bandcamp.com/  where the title track of the EP is currently available as a single.

The video, by Kobold, can be seen below and on the band’s YouTube page at https://youtu.be/sRJ7WGGFHp4 

Artwork for “Askebundet”  is also by Kobold, and track listing for the 3-track EP,  which comes in at just under 25 minutes is as follows:

1.Askebundet
2.Bleeding Wounds
3.Ingen Vet Jeg Var…

After an initial flurry of activity, SVARTELDER largely remained dormant until founder and  frontman Doedsadmiral, decided to reactivate the project with an infusion of new blood in the shape of vastly experienced musicians who have taken the band’s original old-school Norwegian Black Metal roots and contributed their own individual styles to broaden the whole sound and take it in new directions.

Interestingly, the musicians themselves have chosen to use different names for their work in SVARTELDER,  something that allows  them to explore new avenues without any of the pre-conceptions and expectations from fans that may arise because of their previous bodies of work.  Aside from Doedsadmiral on vocals, the rest of the lineup comprises Maletoth on bass and guitars, AK-47 on drums, and Kobold on keys.

The band are currently working on their debut full-length album and are looking for a label.  More information about SVARTELDER can be found on the band’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Svartelder

Having allowed it to remain dormant for a few years, founder and frontman Doedsadmiral has given his Black Metal project SVARTELDER a considerable infusion of both enthusiasm and talent by bringing in members of CARPATHIAN FOREST, IN THE WOODS, DEN SAAKALDTE, PANTHEON I and OLD FOREST to form a new lineup.

Whilst SVARTELDER’s roots were initially planted in Norwegian Black Metal, it is obvious that an influx of musicians with this kind of experience brings with it a whole different set of influences, as each of the members contribute their own skill-sets and style to the overall sound. So much so, in fact, that the band’s newly debuted demo track “Askebundet” clearly shows that SVARTELDER’s music is expanding outwards from straight Black Metal to include more varied elements.

As to the actual lineup itself, the musicians have kept their identities a secret by changing their usual names.  Aside from Doedsadmiral on vocals, the rest of the lineup comprises Maletoth on bass and guitars, AK-47 on drums, and Kobold on keys.

The band are currently working on their debut full-length album and will be looking for a label.  More information about SVARTELDER can be found on the band’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Svartelder
