With their sophomore full-length album, Styggdom, set for release on Osmose Productions on January 31st, 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 at Osmose‘s official YouTube channel HERE.
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 Antichristian (Tsjuder et. al.) 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, here coming up with a much more varied and 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, vinyl LP, and digital formats. Preorder info can be found HERE.
