Despite ENEPSIGOS’s 2017 debut album “Plague of Plagues” having been enthusiastically welcomed by fans of traditional Black Metal, the band itself always felt that the album did not really go far enough in establishing what ENEPSIGOS,  and its music,  was all about.

But now, with Osmose Productions set to release ENEPSIGOS’  sophomore full-length album,  “Wrath Of Wraths”,  on the 27th March, all that is about to change.  Because, according to the band, “Wrath Of Wraths” is “a manifestation of  what ENEPSIGOS really is, and will be.  Dark, disgusting, twisted, ritualistic and violent”.

And today Osmose have released a single  from the album to give fans a taste of what to expect.  The track, “Cups Of Anger”  is available from https://open.spotify.com/album/0e7KhfWWta7YuSZP3hH9Qs

Formed in 2016  by  V.I.T.H.R, otherwise known as Doedsadmiral, founder and frontman of bands such as NORDJEVEL, SVARTELDER and DOEDSVANGR,  and drummer Thorns,  known for his work with BLUT AUS NORD, DEATHROW, FIDES INVERSA, FROSTMOON ECLISPE and DARVAZA,  the band parted company with bassist Straff upon completion of the debut album and were consequently joined by Rituul on bass and guitars, and it is with this lineup that “Wrath Of Wraths” was recorded.

Originally conceived as a studio project, and demonstrating a brutality and darkness imbued with with ritualistic undertones, ENEPSIGOS recently inked a deal with the Flaming Arts Agency to bring the band’s  sound, which is is unashamedly rooted in early, and some would say “true”,  Black Metal traditions, to live audiences.

Hymnr PR

HYMNR, who describe themselves as a Black Metal band from unknown parts of the world, have inked a deal with Saturnal Records for the release of their debut full-length album “Far Beyond Insanity”, which is set to hit the streets on the 8th May.

With artwork by David Thièrrèe, “Far Beyond Insanity”  will be available in CD, Digital and LP formats, as well as a Limited Edition Vinyl , limited to 50 copies, which will contain a poster and a patch, and will be signed by the whole band.  For Old School fans, Elderblood Productions will release a Tape version, limited to 100 copies.

Hymnr Album Art PR

The band has given absolutely nothing away as regards who exactly HYMNR’s members are, simply announcing that the lineup is composed of V on Vocals, V1 on Guitars and VII on Drums.  They have, however, issued this statement regarding the band, its formation, and what to expect from its music:

HYMNR is an entity, a formation that spawned itself.  The music, the story, and the concept of HYMNR is its own tale, charting the tragic path that has led the world, humanity, and religion on a downwards spiral.

 HYMNR is a not so much a band as a concept that sets forth the old anguish-filled tales of how it all ended up where it did.

 What HYMNR is, no one can say, except maybe the induvidual minds of the ones who are willing to embark on this journey.

 HYMNR  needs to be heard and seen, and, above all, felt.

Nattverd PR1

With their sophomore full-length album “Styggdom” set for release on Osmose Productions on the 31st January 2020, fans of Norwegian Black Metallers NATTVERD get their first taste of what to expect from the album with the debut of the track “Dragsvoll”, which can be heard below and at https://youtu.be/02P3z2u_zU4


A
Formed two years ago, and with a lineup of extremely experienced and talented musicians, comprised today of Serpentr  on vocals, Ormr on Vocals and Guitars,  Atyr on Guitars, Sveinr on bass. and Anti Christian on session drums,  NATTVERD has always sought to keep the actual identity of those musicians private, preferring that the band be judged  purely on its music, as opposed to any former, current, or future, bands or releases its members may be involved in.

NATTVERD’s extremely successful debut album “Vi Vet gud Er En Løgner”  showed a band that played Black Metal in the traditional way – cold and nasty and filled with fury and hate. But with “Styggdom”, NATTVERD have grown and expanded, to  come up with a much more varied, atmospheric,  album. An album that shows just how versatile this band can be when it comes to delivering Black Metal.

Drums, Bass, Guitars and Vocals for “Styggdom” were recorded at Velvet Recording, Spydeberg, Norway and engineered by Nattverd and Christer Krogh. Mixing and mastering was handled by Tore Stjerna at the Necromorbus Studios.

With artwork, layout and design by Khaos Diktator Design, “Styggdom” will be available in CD, Digital and Limited Edition LP formats.  Tracklisting is as follows:

  1. Slakt Dem, Der De Loeper Hoedeloese Rundt Baalet
  2. Dragsvoll
  3. Skoddeskott
  4. Heksebrann
  5. Gatelangs I Land Og Rike
  6. Gamle Erik
  7. Hedninger Av En Svart Verden
  8. Guds Djevelske Naervaer

Nyrst PR1

Dark Essence Records have announced today that they have welcomed NYRST onto their roster and will be releasing the debut full-length album from the Icelandic Black Metallers  in 2020.

Formed in the winter of 2013, NYRST released their first demo in 2016.  The demo garnered praise for the band’s use of diverse vocals and chilling atmosphere, whilst NYRST’s  mystic and haunting stage performances have gained them respect as  a live band in the metal scene of their native Iceland

Today’s lineup of Snæbjörn on vocals,  guitarists Eysteinn and Davíð, Egill on bass and Sveinbjörn on drums, pays homage to the bands grim and icy Icelandic heritage by delivering a debut album that promises to be filled with a soundscape that is incredibly cold, stark and barren, whilst its lyrics come straight from old horror literature, laced with cosmic undertones.

NYRST had this to say about their upcoming collaboration with Dark Essence Records:

Nyrst are thrilled to announce that we have joined the Dark Essence Records roster to debut our first album. We draw huge inspiration from various artists on the label so we are extremely honoured to be able to work with this revered label.

Our trust lies with  Dark Essence Records and we believe they are the perfect platform for us to grow and expand our music.
