With less than a month to go to the release of “The Archer, Fjord and the Thunder”, the much-anticipated third full-length album from ENDEZZMA,  Dark Essence Records have provided a further glimpse  into the darkness  the Norwegian Black Metallers  are so adept at creating with the release of a new single taken from the album, along with an accompanying video.

The single, titled “Wild Glorior Death”  can be streamed or downloaded at

https://darkessencerecords.fanlink.to/Endezzma_Wild-Glorior-Death

Whilst the video for “Wild Glorior Death”  can be seen below and at https://youtu.be/BmugxJ3v1yM  

The band point out that with its powerful build up to the climax the video is the perfect visual accompaniment to the track:

“Wild Glorior Death” is a true manifest and a real gate to the core of the mythical and philosophical depth of the album. In this song you find the essential battle of strength, untamed forces and the unbound darkness. A rapture of oppressive sonic splendour visualized by the video that follows the track. The journey builds up through a real violent and epic storm and through the thunder the listener will experience that the song represents the turning point in the storyline of the album. The Archer claims his throne through “Wild Glorior Death”

With “The Archer, Fjord and the Thunder”, ENDEZZMA have taken massive strides with their song writing, and have produced an album that bridges the gap between dark anthems and primitive aggression.  Recorded at the Vika Studio and the Malpherno Studio in Norway, the album was  mixed and mastered by Tore Stjerna at the Necromorbus Studio in Stockholm.  Artwork is by Stefan Todorovic/Kahos Diktator Design, and the tracklisting is as follows:

  1. The Awakening
  2. The Name of the Night is a Strong Tower
  3. Anomalious Abomination
  4. The Archer, Fjord and the Thunder
  5. Formless and Void
  6. Garden ov Heathen
  7. Wild Glorior Death
  8. Open Your Eyes and Stab the Sight
  9. Arrows of Equilibrium
  10. Closure

“The Archer, Fjord and the Thunder” will hit the streets on the 22nd January,  and will be available in Digipak CD, digital and LP formats, with an A2 poster included with the vinyl version.  It is now available to pre-order from the following:

Norwegian Black Metal icon Hoest has cast some positivity into the hell that has been 2020, with the release of two TAAKE 10″split EPs, one with DEATHCULT (on Edged Circle Productions) and one with WHOREDOM RIFE (on Terratur Possessions), and now, as the year draws to a close, a third split has been announced. 

The new EP will see TAAKE join forces with HELHEIM, and will be the last of the three 10″ splits.  Titled ”Henholdsvis”  the EP will appear on Bergen’s eponymous Dark Essence Records, the long-time label of both bands,  and is set for release on the 5th March 2021.

For “Henholdsvis” TAAKE has recorded two new tracks, “Brotne Bein og Mannefall” and “Ein Baat i Foss”,  whose lyrics are based on poems by the famed Norwegian writer Arne Garborg (1851-1924).  With these new tracks, the band has produced the kind of Black Metal fans crave – dark, cold and gritty.

HELHEIM, on the other hand, will present two covers.  The first is a re-mastered version of EMPEROR’s “Heksesabbat / Witches Sabbath”, which originally appeared on the tribute album “A Tribute to Emperor – In Honour of Icon E” in 2012, and which has now been totally remastered.  For the second of the two covers HELHEIM have chosen to go down a very interesting  path by recording a very different,  and original, version of “Orkan” , from TAAKE’s  “Noregs Vaapen” album.

Recorded by Bjørnar E. Nilsen (VULTURE INDUSTRIES, BLACK HOLE GENERATOR) at his Conclave and Earshot Studios in the bands’ hometown of Bergen, and with artwork by H’grimnir, tracklisting for “Henholdsvis” is as follows:

1. Brotne Bein og Mannefall – Taake
2. Ein Baat i Foss – Taake
3. Orkan – Helheim
4. Heksesabbat – Helheim

“Henholdsvis” will be released in 10″ black vinyl as well as in red, white and blue vinyl, limited to 333 copies each.  It will also be available in digital format and can now be pre-order from the following:

Here is what the band have to say about the track:

With The Name Of The Night Is A Strong Tower, we open the tunnels to The Archer’s mythical universe and oppressive landscape. As we let the philosophical perception of death collide with the sight of a grand epic awakening.

Who are we and what do we chase and hunt for if not a greater, intense progress of our burning idol known as death? Or, The Archer when he, upon his arrival announces: The Name Of The Night Is A Strong Tower.

ENDEZZMA was formed in 2006 by frontman M. Shax,  and the band’s  current lineup includes a plethora of talented and experienced musicans.  Together,  M. Shax  on vocals, M. Malphas on guitars, Nihil on Rythm Guitar,  Skriu on  Drums and Aske on bass, demonstrate a  brand of brutal, fiercely intense, and yet aesthetically mystical approach to their music.  

“The Archer, Fjord and the Thunder”, was recorded at the Vika Studio and the Malpherno Studio in Norway, and was mixed and mastered by Tore Stjerna at the Necromorbus Studio in Stockholm, and with it, ENDEZZMA have taken a huge step forward in their song writing, and produced an album that bridges the gap between dark anthems and primitive aggression. 

The cover art for “The Archer, Fjord and the Thunder” is by Stefan Todorovic/Kahos Diktator Design, and the tracklisting is as follows:

  1. The Awakening
  2. The Name of the Night is a Strong Tower
  3. Anomalious Abomination

  5. Formless and Void
  6. Garden ov Heathen
  7. Wild Glorior Death

With their much-anticipated new album “The Archer, Fjord and the Thunder” set to launch Dark Essence Records 2021 releases, ENDEZZMA have today released a single and a new video from the album, giving fans both an audio, and visual taste of what they can expect from the Norwegian Black Metallers. 

The single, titled “Anomalious Abomination” can be streamed or downloaded at  https://darkessencerecords.fanlink.to/Endezzma_AnomaliousAbomination

About the video itself, which can be seen below and at https://youtu.be/liO-pALsNr0  the band had this to say:

“Anomalious Abomination” is the first video from  The Archer, Fjord and the Thunder’s dark infernal paradise. The music and track itself,  as well the visuals of the video,  is a rabid, fierce and infernal bestial “kick off” to the Archers mythical universe of perseverance, liberation and progress. This video is the first in a trinity of collaborations with the brilliant, artistic and Mephistophelic video director Guilherme Henriques,  and his way of working out the inner energy of the band. Let’s open the doors:

The law of the house celebrates death
The law of the house celebrates wild flesh on fire
Follow the archer’s arrow
Through the haze and the heart of your desire

Recorded at the Vika Studio and the Malpherno Studio in Norway, “The Archer, Fjord and the Thunder”, was mixed and mastered by Tore Stjerna at the Necromorbus Studio in Stockholm.  With cover painting by Stefan Todorovic/Kahos Diktator Design, tracklisting for “The Archer, Fjord and the Thunder” is as follows:

Formed in 2006 by frontman M. Shax,  ENDEZZMA’s  current lineup, includes M. Malphas on guitars, Nihil on Rythm Guitar,  Skriu on  Drums and Aske on bass, forming a cohesive group of musicians who together demonstrate a  brand of brutal, fiercely intense, and yet aesthetically mystical approach to their music. 

With “The Archer, Fjord and the Thunder”, ENDEZZMA have taken a huge step forward in their song writing.  Mixing the raw grimness of the early days of black metal with the epic grandeur of later bands, to produce an album that bridges the gap between dark anthems and primitive aggression. 

 Recorded at the Vika Studio and the Malpherno Studio in Norway, “The Archer, Fjord and the Thunder”, was mixed and mastered by Tore Stjerna at the Necromorbus Studio in Stockholm.  With cover painting by Stefan Todorovic/Kahos Diktator Design, the album will be available in Digipak CD and LP formats, with an A2 poster included with the vinyl version.

Tracklisting for “The Archer, Fjord and the Thunder” is as follows:

  1. The Awakening
  2. The Name of the Night is a Strong Tower
  3. Anomalious Abomination
  4. The Archer, Fjord and the Thunder
  5. Formless and Void
  6. Garden ov Heathen
  7. Wild Glorior Death
  8. Open Your Eyes and Stab the Sight
  9. Arrows of Equilibrium
  10. Closure

Commenting on the album ENDEZZMA had this to say:

We are excited to finally bring out the news and details of “The Archer, Fjord and the Thunder” because this is an album into which we really have placed not just a piece of our heart but also our  whole soul.  Never before have we worked as hard and as determinedly on every little detail of an album.  In it we really see the band arise out of the ashes as a new golden entity, with a hunger  that is more rabid than ever, filled with the desire to set the world ablaze with our music.

We feel that the album takes the band into a new epic and mythical landscape and sends  the listeners out on an  infernal , intense, and epic journey to a dark and obscure world that is lit by the archer’s flaming arrows of equilibrium, wild glorious death and anomalious abomination.

“The Archer Fjord and the Thunder” should be considered as a concept album, and we invite you into our world of stellar darkness, to explore our path of burning devotion…We are Endezzma  “

ENDEZZMA recently releases a video for the track “Serpent Earth” from their 2017 album “The Arcane Abyss” and it can be seen below and at https://youtu.be/Va_OX3DnSJw

Endezzma PR 2020

Norwegian Black Metallers ENDEZZMA have signed a two-album deal with Dark Essence Records, joining a roster that includes some of the best known and established bands in the genre, as well as some of the upcoming artists that are making huge waves on the scene.

Formed in 2006 by frontman M. Shax, ENDEZZMA’s original lineup featured URGEHAL’s late, and much lamented, Trondr Nefas.  The duo, joined by other, experienced Norwegian musicians, quickly established a die-hard following, impressed by the band’s live appearances, which were imbued with  morbid overtones and an undercurrent of barely-suppressed viciousness.   “Alone”, ENDEZZMA’s aptly named first release,  cemented the band’s reputation as a force to be reckoned with. A band that went its own way, regardless of what others thought, or were doing.

The debut full-length “Erotik Nekrosis” appeared in 2012, and proved that ENDEZZMA was a band well-able to weave an old school atmosphere into  eerie, seductive, modern compositions, to produce  an album full of necro requiems.    It also marked the death of Trondr Nefas, which left  a vacuum within the band.  A  vacuum that was eventually filled by guitarist M. Malphas, which allowed ENDEZZMA to go on to explore mystical dark fields with their sophomore full-length “Arcane Abyss”.

Aside from Shax on vocals and Malphas on guitars, ENDEZZMA’s lineup includes Nihil on Rythm Guitar,  Skriu on  Drums and Aske on  Bass  –  a group of experienced musicians, hungry to bring their brand of brutal, fiercely intense, and yet aesthetically mystical approach, to Dark Essence Records, a label they know will understand where they are coming from, and where they want to go.

Commenting on what fans can expect from their third album, ENDEZZMA had this to say:

The upcoming album has been mixed and mastered by Tore Stjerna at the Necromorbus Studio in Stockholm. He Is well known for his great work on recent  WATAIN and MAYHEM albums, so we knew that we were in the hands of someone who would know exactly what we wanted.

 Together with Dark Essence we intend to meet the high expectations that have been placed on us, and come out with an album of extremely strong material that will take fans into a mystical world of stellar darkness filled with mythical outcasts and characters. 

 Epic energy will burn the night!
It’s time to let the Stellar Darkness shine!
WE ARE ENDEZZMA

Darkness Shall Rise, the German label specialising in the release of high quality music cassettes, will release the first two albums from Norwegian Black Metal veterans RAGNAROK on the 31 August.

The two albums, 1995’s “Nattferd” and 1997’s “Arising Realm”, have never been released on cassette before, giving collectors and RAGNAROK fans a long-awaited treat.  Both albums were originally released on the legendary Head Not Found label, and served as a storming introduction to RAGNAROK, the band  founded by iconic drummer Jontho Panthera.

Ragnarok Tape Nattferd PR

Since then, RAGNAROK has gone on to release a total of nine full-length albums,  as well as a retrospective showcasing 20 years of the band’s hard-to-find demos and EP’s.  With well over two decades of existence, Jontho has ensured that RAGNAROK has remained faithful to what is seen as  Norwegian Black Metal marked with an uncompromising sound that is filled with anger and aggression.

Ragnarok Tape Arising Realm PR

“Nattferd” and “Arising Realm” will be available in a limited quantity of 350 copies each, and are now available to pre-order from  https://darknessshallrise.de/

Crest of DarknessPR1

Norwegian Black Metal veterans CREST OF DARKNESS have revealed a new video by Stig Kenneth Limmesand for the title track from their ninth full-length album “The God Of Flesh”.

The video can be seen below and at https://youtu.be/0VNOLVXpwjQ


A
CREST OF DARKNESS founder Ingar Amlien has this to say about the new video:

 Stig Kenneth Limmesand has done a great job with the video for “The God Of Flesh”.  He’s succeeded in capturing CREST OF DARKNESS and all our symbolism in the best possible way, presenting them in a such a way that is not only up to date, but also very much “Old School”  in the “right way”

Released on My Kingdom Music in December of last year, “The God Of Flesh” is still filled  with CREST OF DARKNESS’  trademark Satanic themes,  but, at the same time, it marks a change to the  feel, variety, and depth of the music.  It is, according to Amlien, “probably the darkest and most brutal album we’ve ever made! It’s also the most honest work ever from my perspective

With “The God Of Flesh” CREST OF DARKNESS’ vastly experienced, and extremely skilled,  lineup of Amlien (CONCEPTION, ROQUEFIRE, AMLIEN’s INFERNO) on Bass and Vocals, Rebo on Rhythm and Lead Guitars, and Berhard (ex- PALE FOREST) on Drums, along with the album’s session keyboardist Kristian Wentzel,  demonstrate how equally at home they with more progressive and melodic elements, as they are  the with the aggressive and dark brutal side, for which they are known.

Crest Of Darkkness PR1

Seeking an outlet for his passion for sonic brutality and his interest in Vampirism and Satanic ideology, on which he is an acknowledged expert, Amlien  formed CREST OF DARKNESS in the mid nineties and considers today’s lineup to be the strongest in the band’s history, as he explains:

During the whole production of the album I was thinking that now, more than ever before, I wanted to make an album my way!  And, as a result, we haven’t made any compromises whatsoever, in any direction.  And I’m very fortunate to be able to say that I was not alone during the whole process. With the help of my fantastic band mates Rebo and Bernhard, it became possible to bring my darkest fantasies and visions to life through “The God of Flesh”

“The God of Flesh” is available in Digital, Digipak CD, Deluxe CD Box, and Vinyl formats from all the usual retailers at http://smarturl.it/CODFLESH

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
