After two hugely successful albums and an ever-increasing fan base, Black Metallers NORDJEVEL have today announced that they have signed to Norwegian label Indie Recordings for the release of their next album.  According to founder Doedsadmiral, the decision to change labels was originally a question of practicality as much as anything else:

We worked very well with Osmose Productions on our first two albums, and we have no complaints at all, indeed, they were instrumental in making those albums so successful, but we really wanted to work with a local label where we would be able to drop into their offices whenever we had anything to discuss.  We had a good discussion with Indie and they came up with the right package and, very importantly to us, a way or working that suited NORDJEVEL, so here we are – ready for the next stage of the band’s development.

 Being a band that is quite prolific in the production of videos, there is, needless to say, a new one on the horizon, which will be for the track “The Fevered Lands” from NORDJEVEL’s album “Necrogenesis”, which was released on Osmose Productions earlier this year. A teaser for the video, which includes a welcome message from Indie, can be seen at below and at https://youtu.be/Cfh77fPhfis

In another piece of news, NORDJEVEL have also confirmed that following his recent sabbatical VREDEHAMMER’s Valla is now back on guitars, rejoining a stellar lineup that includes Doedsadmiral (SVARTELDER, DOEDSVANGR, ENEPSIGOS) on vocals, DzeptiCunt (ex-RAGNAROK) on bass, Destruchtor (MYRKSKOG, ex-MORBID ANGEL) on guitars and backing vocals, and Dominator (ex-DARK FUNERAL) on drums.

Norwegian Black Metal veterans RAGNAROK are set to play a couple of tracks from their upcoming full-length album during their Inferno Festival appearance on Friday 19 April.

As founder Jontho, one of Black Metal’s most recognisable and iconic drummers, who has laid down his sticks in order to front RAGNAROK, explains:

Oslo’s Inferno Festival is not just legendary in Norway, it’s legendary throughout the world, so it’s always exciting to appear there, as it is to soak up the atmosphere and meet all the fans.  That’s why we thought we’d break out a couple of the new songs even before we announce details of the album itself. 

You can catch RAGNAROK on the Rockefeller stage at 16:30.

Ragnarok Inferno Running Order

Whilst  the band doesn’t want to reveal too much about what will be their ninth full-length album at this time, they have confirmed that once again they have called on the services MARDUK bassist Devo to steer them through the recording process at his Endarker Studio in Sweden, and  that it is set for release on Agonia Records in October.

More details will follow soon.

Part- way through their European Tour with SUFFOCATION, BELPHEGOR and GOD DETHRONED, Norwegian Black Metallers NORDJEVEL have today released a video for the track “Devilry”, taken from their new album “Necrogenesis”

The video, by Grupa 13 Production, can be seen below and at https://youtu.be/wCajxcgrW2g


A
A follow up to Nordjevel’s 2016 self-titled debut full-length album, “Necrogenesis” sees the band’s core of founder and vocalist Doedsadmiral (SVARTELDER, DOEDSVANGR, ENEPSIGOS) and bassist DzeptiCunt (ex-RAGNAROK), being joined by Destruchtor (MYRKSKOG, ex-MORBID ANGEL) on guitars and backing vocals, and Dominator (ex-DARK FUNERAL) on drums.

Nordjevel PR2

Talking about the effect the new arrivals have had on the band, Doedsadmiral recently had this to say:

With the addition of Destruchtor and Dominator to the band’s lineup, NORDJEVEL has never been so strong. “Necrogenesis” is a much darker and violent album. It is also more varied and mature, both musically and lyrically. We definitely did not want to get stuck in a rut and churn out an identikit version of our debut, and, fortunately, we all felt that we wanted to go in the same direction, so we were all able to work together extremely well on the new songs.  Having said that, “Necrogenesis” was a hard bastard of an album to complete, and at times we felt that the universe was conspiring against us, so it became a very personal album for all of us.

“Necrogenesis”, which was released on Osmose Productions on the 29th March, was recorded at Velvet Recording in Spydeberg, Norway, “Necrogenesis” and was engineered by Nordjevel and Christer Krogh, and mixed and mastered by Patric Darkhyrys at his WSL Studios in France.

With Artwork and layout by Vincent Fouquet of Above Chaos, tracklisting for “Necrogenesis” is as follows

1. Sunset Glow
2. Devilry
3. The Idea Of One-Ness
4. Black Lights From The Void
5. Amen Whores
6. The Fevered Lands
7. Nazarene Necrophilia
8. Apokalupsis Eschation

Norwegian Black Metallers NORDJEVEL, whose self-titled debut full-length album was released on Osmose Produtions to great critical acclaim three years ago, are back with a vengeance with “Necrogenesis”, an album which sees the band’s core of founder and vocalist Doedsadmiral (SVARTELDER, DOEDSVANGR, ENEPSIGOS) and bassist DzeptiCunt (ex-RAGNAROK), being joined by Destruchtor (MYRKSKOG, ex-MORBID ANGEL) on guitars and backing vocals, and Dominator (ex-DARK FUNERAL) on drums.

The new arrivals have enabled NORDJEVEL to expand its musical horizons and produce an album that promises to be more ferocious than its predecessor, as Doedsadmiral explains:

With the addition of Destruchtor and Dominator to the band’s lineup, NORDJEVEL has never been so strong. “Necrogenesis” is a much darker and violent album. It is also more varied and mature, both musically and lyrically.

Svartelder Promo18B

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


A
“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:

Part.I
Part.II
Part.III
Part.IV
Part.V
Part.VI
Part.VII

With artwork by Khaos Diktator Design, “Pits” will be available in CD, Digital, Black Vinyl and Limited Edition (100 copies) Deep Blue Vinyl  formats and can be pre-ordered now at https://dusktone.bandcamp.com/album/pits

Ragnarok and Devo

Ragnarok in the studio with Devo

Twenty five years after having been formed by iconic drummer Jontho, veteran Norwegian Black Metallers RAGNAROK have entered the studio to begin work on what will be the band’s ninth full-length album.  The, as yet unnamed,  album is expected to be released during late May 2019 on Agonia Records.

Work on the album is progressing well, with drum tracks having already been laid and work on guitars having begun. As with RAGNAROK’s last three albums, “Psychopathology” (2016), “Malediction” (2012) and “Collectors of the King” (2010),  the band has chosen to record in Sweden’s Endarker Studio, with Devo (MARDUK) once again producing, because, as Jontho, who has now switched roles from drummer to frontman,  explained:

Why change something that works?  We know the studio so well by now and how good the facilities are, and,  after three albums,  Devo really understands what RAGNAROK wants and how we work.  He’s a great producer and we’re really looking forward to seeing what he does the new material.

RAGNAROK will head for Canada later this month to appear at the Messe des Morts Festival in Montreal, and have been confirmed to appear at next year’s  legendary Inferno Metal Festival in Oslo, Norway on the 19th April.
