Finnish psychedelic black metallers Oranssi Pazuzu have revealed the artwork and tracklist of their upcoming new album titled Kosmonument, to be released on October 26th, 2011, via Spinefarm Records. You can pre-order the album at this location.
Mare, the new album by Norwegian pagan black metal band Kampfar, will be released on March 25th in Europe and April 5th in North America through Napalm Records.
The album was produced by Peter Tägtgren at Abyss Studio.
According to the press release, Mare opens a new chapter in the Norwegians' band history, while delivering a true monument to black metal. Frontman Dolk and the rest of the band have achieved the difficult task of giving their sound new impulses without losing their unique style. Isolated keyboard passages and sprechgesang consort with icy riffs, dark melodies, and oppressive drums. Dolk's raw vocals continue to set the pace, while giving songs like "Bergtatt", Volvevers", and the title track such intensity that they are left with no other choice but to crawl under the skin of even the most discerning black and pagan metal fans.
