Shining studio PR2

Sweden’s SHINING have finished recording their tenth studio album, ‘X – Varg Utan Flock’ (“Wolf Without a Pack”), which will be released on Season of Mist.

SHINING’s founder and frontman Niklas Kvarforth commented:

“It has been an ordeal of gigantic proportions, but I am pleased to announce that the recording of our tenth album have now come to an end, and I am currently working on the final visual details before this aural nightmare can be sent off to our label and fuck up your lives.

‘X – Varg Utan Flock’ is the direct follow up to our fifth album, but, as usual it does contain a few unexpected twists and turns that will send cold shivers down your spines. It was an honour to serve for two decades as the grand puppet-master and bringer of chaos.

Let there be Blood!”

Sweden’s “Alfapokalyptic Rockers” ALFAHANNE, whose third full-length album “Det Nya Svarta” is set for release on Indie Recordings in April have today revealed another track from the album via a lyric video by Marcelo Vasco Arts .  The track, ” Avgrundsgravitation”  features guest vocals by  DAVID LINDH of SOOT & FLOOD, YVONNE and  BRODER DANIEL is premiering exclusively on Ghost Cult magazine at http://www.ghostcultmag.com/exclusive-video-premiere-alfahanne-avgrundsgravitation/

ALFAHANNE’s lineup of Pehr Skjoldhammer on Vocals and Guitar, Fredrik Sööberg on Guitars, Niklas Åström on Drums, and Jimmy Wiberg on Bass,  came together to form the band in Eskilstuna, Sweden, in 2010. With considerable experience gained in bands such  as VINTERLAND and early MAZE OF TORMENT,  and with an abundance of energy and exuberance, ALFAHANNE hit the ground running with their debut full-length album “Alfapokalyps”, which  appeared on Dark Essence Records in 2014 and  was followed by “Blod Eld Alfa” in 2015.

With their impressive, and totally likeable,  swagger, and their natural affinity for making friends with their fans, ALFAHANNE’s growing reputation as a dynamic live act, coupled with a sound that they describe as “Alfapokalyptic Rock”, which mixes Black Metal with Classic Rock and Punk, and good old Rock n Roll, has earned the band an ever-growing army of followers.

Along with winning over their fans, ALFHAHANNE have also earned the respect of established musicians, amongst whom are TAAKE’s Hoest, SHINING’s Niklas Kvarforth, HELHEIM’s V’gandr,  KVELERTAK frontman Erlend Hjelvik, Spellgoth from HORNA and TURMION KÄTILÖT, and Nattfursth from SORHIN, all of whom have guested in the studio with the band, and some of whom have also appeared live on stage with them.

In keeping with what has become a tradition of being able to work with some of the best of the best, ALFAHANNE’s new album “Det Nya Svarta” features guest vocals from KAMPFAR’s Dolk, GEHENNA’s Sanrabb and  Nadine Skjoldhammer, as well as the afore-mentioned David Lindh. Recorded at the Dödskult studio by Alfahanne’s Pehr Skjoldhammer and Mixed and mastered by Stamos Koliousis, and with artwork by the Trine + Kim Design Studio, track listing for “Det Nya Svarta” is as follows:

1. Satans verser (with Dolk from KAMPFAR)
2. Stigmata
3. Avgrundsgravitation (with David Lindh from SOOT & FLOOD ,YVONNE, BRODER DANIEL)
4. Klubb 27
5. Mitt mörker är mörkare än ditt (with Nadine Skjoldhammer)
6. Dödsmaskin (with Sanrabb from GEHENNA)
7. Även en hund har sin dag
8. Svarta får
9. Det nya svarta

alfahanne-coverart

Frontman Skjoldhammer recently explained that with their third full-length album ALFAHANNE are continuing  to explore the dark side of mankind: Alfahanne’s lyrics are very personal and have many layers of dirt. Once you dig deeper into them you find many truths as I see them.  Alfahanne will never lean to the left or to the right or write about political issues. The only political issue that is close to our hearts is equal rights but the flipside of that same coin is that we think everyone is equally…. Equally useless.” 

Commenting about ” Avgrundsgravitation”,  Skjoldhammer had this to say:

This one is about falling. When you’re young you have lots of hopes and dreams, but as you get older you realise that they won’t happen.  But you still can’t let them go, s o you just keep thinking that tomorrow will be better ad infinitum.  But the truth is that today’s medication and therapy only makes rock bottom seem further away. You just keep on falling, further and further into the abyss, and the abyss becomes deeper and deeper than you think”.

“Det Nya Svarta”, which will hit the streets on April 7th,  is now available to pre-order in CD and Vinyl formats from http://shop.indierecordings.no/artist/16189–alfahanne and in Digital format from https://alfahanneofsweden.bandcamp.com/album/pre-order-det-nya-svarta

ALFAHANNE have been confirmed to appear at the  In Flammen Open Air festival in Torgau, Germany in July.  More dates to be announced shortly.

ALFAHANNE, who recently inked a deal with Indie Recordings for the release of their third full-length album “Det Nya Svarta”,  set to hit the streets on the 7th April, have signed a booking deal with the international booking agency Pitch & Smith.  With offices in the UK and Sweden,  Pitch & Smith, who represent artists from across the globe throughout Europe, the UK, Asia and Australasia, is one more step forward for the dynamic foursome who aim to bring back a sense of danger to Rock n Roll with their self-styled brand of “Alfapokalyptic Rock”.

Commenting on the new collaboration ALFAHANNE had this to say: “Despite the fact that we cut our teeth in bands like VINTERLAND and MAZE OF TORMENT, which are essentially what you would class as bands on the “extreme” end of the musical spectrum, ALFAHANNE has proved to be a totally different beast.  When we started out, our  audience was, not unexpectedly,  drawn mainly from the Black Metal scene, but the more we became known, and especially the more we played live, it became obvious that ALFAHANNE’s appeal was much wider and we found that we were attracting all kinds of fans.

“And  that is absolutely what we wanted.  We didn’t want people to listen to us because we were this kind of band or that kind of band, but because we were ALFAHANNE and because we had something that struck a chord with their individual musical tastes.  That’s why we are so excited to be working with Pitch & Smith and why we think they are the natural choice for us.  Not only were the guys we will be working with born and raised in the same town as us, which means that they understand what we come from and where we want to head, but, more importantly, the nature of their agency means  we are not going to be tagged as just another “metal” band –  they are going to help us bring our music to a much wider audience.  And what band doesn’t want that?”

The band’s  lineup of Pehr Skjoldhammer on Vocals and Guitar, Fredrik Sööberg on Guitars, Niklas Åström on Drums and Jimmy Wiberg on Bass,  have a good decade of experience under their belts, and it’s an experience that enables ALFAHANNE  to produce the kinds of albums and stage performances that have garnered them  a faithful, and ever-increasing fan base, as well as a plethora of well-known artists making guest appearances on their albums or live on stage .

ALFAHANNE’s new album “Det Nya Svarta”  was recorded at the Dödskult studio by Alfahanne’s Pehr Skjoldhammer and mixed and mastered by Stamos Koliousis.   Following the  ALFAHANNE tradition of including some high profile guests on their releases  “Det Nya Svarta” includes performances from KAMPFAR’s Dolk, David Lindh from YVONNE AND BRODER DANIEL,  Sanrabb from GEHENNA and Nadine Skjoldhammer.  Tracklisting for “Det Nya Svarta” is as follows:

1. Satans verser (with Dolk from KAMPFAR)
2. Stigmata
3. Avgrundsgravitation (with David Lindh from YVONNE & BRODER DANIEL)
4. Klubb 27
5. Mitt mörker är mörkare än ditt (with Nadine Skjoldhammer)
6. Dödsmaskin (with Sanrabb from GEHENNA)

On the heels of the very successful self-titled debut album, Black Metallers NORDJEVEL are set to release “Krigsmakt”, a 7″ EP, which will hit the streets on Osmose Productions on the 20th February.

With artwork by Khaos Diktator Design, the three-track EP will be limited to 500 copies, the B side of which is silk screen printed, and comes with a printed inner sleeve . Tracklisting on “Krigsmakt” is as follows:

1.Krigsmakt
2.For De Falne…
3.Into Ever Deeper Depths

nordjevel-krigsmakt-coverpr2

“Krigsmakt” is now available to pre-order from http://www.osmoseproductions.com/item/2/94903-110402-1201-1-0/118522577/nordjevel-krigsmakt.html

NORDJEVEL was founded by frontman Doedsadmiral (SVARTELDER, DOEDSVANGR, ENEPSIGOS) and guitarist Nord (FATAL IMPACT, TVANGESTE, BYRDI), and, making use of Doedsadmiral’s considerable skills at bringing together musicians who are not only hugely experienced, but who also share the same musical ideas and ideals, the band’s ranks were quickly swelled by MARDUK’s Fredrik Widigs on drums and former RAGNAROK bassist DzeptiCunt.  With NORDJEVEL’s distinctive sound firmly set, the the band have added another guitarist to their lineup in the shape of Morten “Noralf” Kleftaas, who had previously appeared with the band as a session live guitarist.

The success of the band’s debut album meant that virtually overnight offers started to come in for live appearances, and, as a result, NORDJEVEL have handed their booking and management responsibilities to the Flaming Arts Agency. Commenting on the new collaboration the band had this to say:

“We have to admit that the success of the debut album caught us a little by surprise.  We knew we had something special, but the response from the fans and critics was overwhelming, and resulted in a lot of interest in us playing live.  We had to totally rethink everything very quickly, and came up with what we consider to be a perfect solution – and that was teaming up with Flaming Arts.  Patricia Thomas, who has been Doedsadmiral’s personal manager for longer than either of them care to remember, and who works with all his projects, will continue handling all of NORDJEVEL’s PR. She and Flaming Arts have frequently worked together over the years and know how each other functions, which is a big plus for everyone concerned as there is no learning process.  So now we have a great band and a great team, and we can look forward to the future, which will include more live appearances world-wide”.

Aside from preparing for their already confirmed live appearances, which include a UK tour in April, including an appearance at the Eradication Festival, a US tour in May, which will culminate in an appearance at the Maryland Deathfest, and an appearance at the Gothoom Open Air Festival in Slovakia in July, NORDJEVEL are currently working on their second full-length album.

Sweden’s self-styled “Alfapokalyptic Rockers” ALFAHANNE have inked a deal with Indie Recordings, who are set to release the band’s third full-length album “Det Nya Svarta” on the 7th April.

Hailing from Eskilstuna, ALFAHANNE burst onto the scene in 2010 with the avowed intent to bring back a sense of danger to Rock n Roll.  Playing what the band calls “Alfapocalyptic Rock”, which mixes Black Metal with Classic Rock and Punk, and good old Rock n Roll, ALFAHANNE have created their own style of music, full of the kind of swagger and attitude that earns them plaudits from critics and fans alike.

Add to this the fact that ALFAHANNE were, right from the word go, able to attract high calibre guests such as  as TAAKE’s Hoest, SHINING’s Niklas Kvarforth, HELHEIM’s V’gandr,  KVELERTAK frontman Erlend Hjelvik, Spellgoth from HORNA and TURMION KÄTILÖT, and Nattfursth from SORHIN, not just on their first two albums, but also live on stage, and have continued this enviable the tradition with “Det Nya Svarta” , and you know you have something pretty special.

The band’s lineup of Pehr Skjoldhammer on Vocals and Guitar, Fredrik Sööberg on Guitars, Niklas Åström on Drums and Jimmy Wiberg on Bass,  have a couple of decades of experience under their belts in bands like VINTERLAND and early MAZE OF TORMENT.  Bringing that experience to the studio ALFAHANNE released their debut full-length album “Alfapokalyps” on Dark Essence Records in 2014.  This was followed by “Blod Eld Alfa” in 2015, and,  within a short two-year period , ALFAHANNE’s high energy, exuberance, and easy going, friendly  interaction with the fans (both on and off the stage) brought the band to the attention of audiences world-wide, garnering them a legion of fans.

Frontman Skjoldhammer explains that with their third full-length album ALFAHANNE continues to explore the dark side of mankind: Alfahanne’s lyrics are very personal and have many layers of dirt. Once you dig deeper into them you find many truths as I see them.  Alfahanne will never lean to the left or to the right or write about political issues. The only political issue that is close to our hearts is equal rights but the flipside of that same coin is that we think everyone is equally…. Equally useless.” 

“Det Nya Svarta”  was recorded at the Dödskult studio by Alfahanne’s Pehr Skjoldhammer and Mixed and mastered by Stamos Koliousis.  Guests on the album include KAMPFAR’s Dolk, David Lindh from YVONNE AND BRODER DANIEL, Sanrabb from GEHENNA, (with Nadine Skjoldhammer)

Commenting on their collaboration with Indie Recordings ALFAHANNE had this to say:  “We think Indie is a natural choice for us and we are very pleased to be collaborating with them. Now we just hope that they are aware that they have thrown a bone to a dog, fed the beast, poured gasoline on the  fire and unchained a monster.”

Sweden’s VANHELGA, whose music falls between Black Metal and DSBM, and who use deceptively melodic pieces to create disturbing scenarios,  describe “Ode & Elegy” as being an album in two parts:   ” Ode” or “Old Diary Entries” is about the deteriorating mental state of a young woman, slipping further and further into depression and darkness. Her recorded voice is intertwined with the music.  “Elegy” is the continuation.  It’s about looking back and reflecting on those dark situations in life: the hopelessness, drugs, abuse, depression and death.  In summary, to understand and accept that life is without meaning”.

Artwork for “Ode & Elegy” is by Gedeminas Kiauné of Manum Diaboli Art and is out on Talheim Records.

Trackllisting as follows:

09. Status – Handlinsförlamad
