With their debut full-length album “Plague of Plagues”  having been released at the beginning of the year on Drakkar Productions, and with work progressing steadily on the follow up, Black Metallers ENEPSIGOS have inked a two -album deal with Osmose Productions.

ENEPSIGOS was formed in the summer of 2016 by V.I.T.H.R, otherwise known as Doedsadmiral, the founder and frontman of NORDJEVEL, SVARTELDER and DOEDSVANGR, who, like ENEPSIGOS, are all relatively new bands,  but whose lineups are composed of hugely experienced musicians, drawn from some of the best known exponents of Black Metal.  For ENEPSIGOS, V.I.T.H.R has been able to call on the services of former SARKOM guitarist Straff and drummer Thorns,  known for his work with BLUT AUS NORD, DEATHROW, FIDES INVERSA, FROSTMOON ECLISPE and DARVAZA amongst others.

With its roots firmly entrenched in the traditions of early Black Metal, ENEPSIGOS’ music is dark and brutal, with ritualistic undertones,  and has been described in the press as having a “vicious intensity”.  The, as yet to be titled, follow up to “Plague of Plagues”, whose drums have already been recorded, promises more of the same darkness.

Commenting on the decision to sign with Osmose, V.I.T.H.R had this to say:  “It was a natural progression to a bigger label who could take us further along the road.  I already knew how Osmose worked, because NORDJEVEL is signed with them, and it has been a close collaboration, with everyone having an input and exchanging ideas.  It’s a very productive way to work as far as I’m concerned”.

Norwegian Black Metallers SARKOM, whose fourth full-length album “Anti-Cosmic Art”  was released on Dark Essence Records at the end of last year, have today revealed a video of a track from the album.  Produced and directed by Andreas Luggen Martinussen , Edited by Kolbjørn Voll Hjelmerud and with music and lyrics by SARKOM founder and frontman E. Unsgaard, the video for the track “Seen through the eyes of a pedophile priest” can be seen below and on YouTube at https://youtu.be/fBsh5tKBrhg 


x
Dealing, without a doubt,  about a controversial subject, Unsgaard had this to say about the track itself and the video:

“I got the idea for this song after seeing the documentary “Deliver Us From Evil”.  Pedophilia is something most people despise and don’t want to talk about, but it’s a deadly serious theme as these predators actually live amongst us.  I did some research and the lyrics are based on how I would interpret the mind and thoughts of a pedophile.  As for the video itself, it turned out pretty much as I had envisioned it, and I am very satisfied with the result.  More so because it gave us the chance to work with a professional team with extensive experience gained in TV production.  They also seemed to enjoy doing something different as working on this kind of music/video project was something new to them.  I mean, the last TV production they worked on was “Paradise Hotel”…

SARKOM is set to appear at Inferno Festival in Oslo for the Dark Essence Label night which will take place at Blå on Wednesday 12th April.  For their appearance the band will  play a special set which will include songs that have rarely, or never, been played live.  Additionally, the set will feature a guest appearance from BEASTCRAFT’s Sorath Northgrove.

Other Dark Essence Records bands scheduled for the event are SLEGEST, HAIL SPIRIT NOIR and SULPHUR.

SARKOM will also be appearing at the Dark Easter Metal Meeting in Munich, Germany, on the 15th April.

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

Dark Essence Records released SARKOM’s third full-length album “Doomsday Elite” in both CD and Digital formats in 2013,  followed by the release of  the band’s two earlier albums – 2006’s “Aggravation of Mind” and 2008’s “Bestial Supremacy” in Digital format.  All three albums are available from, and can be heard at, https://sarkom.bandcamp.com

“Anti-Cosmic Art”, the new album from veteran Norwegian Black Metallers SARKOM is streaming in its entirety ahead of its 2nd December release date on Dark Essence Records.  The album can be heard exclusively on No Clean Singing at http://www.nocleansinging.com/2016/11/30/an-ncs-album-premiere-and-a-review-sarkom-anti-cosmic-art/

The  seven-track album was originally intended to mark the band’s tenth anniversary, but was unavoidably delayed due to a series of personal and technical difficulties.  “Anti-Cosmic Art” displays the versatility of the Norwegian veterans, ranging, as it does, from Old School Black Metal to more experimental tracks.  It is brutally catchy, largely guitar-driven, and the whole is imbued with the crushingly dark sound that SARKOM has made its own.

SARKOM’s choice of guest artists for “Anti-Cosmic Art” is a clear indication of how unafraid the band is to step out of their comfort zone, with appearances from the likes of SHINING’s Peter Huss,  Ronni Le Tekrø from TNT and ROQUEFIRE and TROLLFEST’s Sagstad  who all contribute to give the album a guitar-driven sound, whilst  ALFAHANNE frontman  Pehr Skjoldhammer’s  distinctive vocals add a completely different dimension to the track “Come, dear Cancer”.

With artwork by Spectrvm Lvsitani, tracklisting for “Anti-Cosmic Art” is as follows:

  1. Previous associates, now as targets for the gun
  2. Mind-abscess
  3. Ruiners of our family tree
  4. Seen through the eyes of a paedophile priest
  5. Come, dear cancer
  6. Black metal necrophilia
  7. Sodomy and lust (Sodom cover).

Veterans of the Norwegian Black Metal scene, SARKOM are known for their crushingly dark sound, and with the brutally catchy “Anti-Cosmic Art” album, the band produce more of the same, but this time they also show that far from being afraid to step out of their comfort zone, they happily embrace the idea and take their listeners on a journey that ranges from  Old School Black Metal through to more experimental tracks.

Even the choice of guest artists indicates how versatile the band’s music can be, with appearances from the likes of SHINING’s Peter Huss,  Ronni Le Tekrø from TNT and ROQUEFIRE and TROLLFEST’s Sagstad  who all contribute to give “Anti-Cosmic Art” a guitar-driven sound, as well as ALFAHANNE frontman  Pehr Skjoldhammer whose distinctive vocals add a completely different dimension to the track “Come, dear Cancer”.

Dark Essence Records have announced the details of the new album from veteran Norwegian Black Metallers SARKOM, which is set to hit the streets on the 2nd December.

Titled “Anti-Cosmic Art” the seven-track album was originally intended to mark the band’s tenth anniversary, but was delayed due to a combination of personal and technical difficulties that often beset bands and skew carefully laid release plans.   Which, as it happens, worked out for the best, because it gave the band time to rethink, and produce an album that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that SARKOM is a long way from being a “one trick pony”, as is often the case on the Black Metal scene.

Featuring guest appearances from ALFAHANNE’s Pehr Skjoldhammer, and guitar virtuosos Ronni Le Tekrø (TNT, ROQUEFIRE) and Peter Huss (SHINING), as well as former SARKOM member Sagstad (TROLLFEST), and with artwork by Spectrvm Lvsitani, tracklisting for “Anti-Cosmic Art” is as follows:

  1. Previous associates, now as targets for the gun
  2. Mind-abscess
  3. Ruiners of our family tree
  4. Seen through the eyes of a paedophile priest
  5. Come, dear cancer
  6. Black metal necrophilia
  7. Sodomy and lust (Sodom cover)

Founder and frontman Unsgaard (SO MUCH FOR NOTHING), Sgt V (ex SVARTTJERN)  on  bass,  Thrawn (ex DØDHEIMSGARD) on guitar  and  Defest (SVARTHAUEG) on drums,  have made full use of the unique, crushingly dark sound that is SARKOM’s trademark, and have come up with an album that ranges from icy, Old School Black Metal , to more experimental tracks.   Brutally catchy, guitar-driven, and featuring blast beats from hell, “Anti-Cosmic Art” demonstrates perfectly that SARKOM have no problems stepping out of their comfort zone, or of appealing to a wider audience.

To  mark the release of “Anti-Cosmic Art” SARKOM will play the following two Norwegian dates:

03 Dec:  Good Omens, Trondheim
17 Dec:  Revolver, Oslo

Nobody knows who the Norwegian vocalist behind some of the most talked about new Black and Extreme Metal bands to emerge over the last year is, but one thing is sure, he has an uncanny knack of being able to bring together talented musicians from well known, established bands, and give them the impetus to  create new projects. Projects that have allowed the individual musicians to bring their experience and different disciplines together to form bands that, whilst helmed by the same individual, are totally different one from the other.  Furthermore, in a saturated market, they are bands that  get snapped up by labels in very short order.

With NORDJEVEL and SVARTELDER having already released critically acclaimed albums on Osmose Productions and Dusktone respectively, and with DOEDSVANGR currently considering various recording offers, ENEPSIGOS,  the latest project of this shadowy individual,  has attracted interest from labels purely on the strength of two raw demo tracks, and the band has just agreed a deal with the French label Drakkar Productions for the release of their debut album.

Having eschewed his stage name of Doedsadmiral, in favour of V.I.T.H.R, for his work with ENEPSIGOS, the mysterious vocalist has called upon the talents of fellow countryman and former SARKOM guitarist Straff and Italian drummer Thorns known for his work with BLUT AUS NORD, DEATHROW, FIDES INVERSA, FROSTMOON ECLISPE and DARVAZA, to name but a few.  Together they have created a band that is dark and brutal, and whose roots in the traditions of early Black Metal are unmistakable.

Because it’s easy to talk about what a band is going to sound  like, but in reality it’s impossible for fans to form any kind of idea about a band without actually hearing any music, ENEPSIGOS have uploaded a ROUGH STUDIO MIX of the title track from their upcoming album “Plague of Plagues” and it can be heard below and at https://soundcloud.com/enepsigos-official/plague-of-plagues
