Greek black metal band Dødsferd have been relentlessly pushing out one quality album after the other and just when we thought they couldn’t better their previous, extremely well-received full length ‘Diseased Remnants of a Dying World,they’ve come up with an EP that expands upon what made the album so special. There are only two songs but they’re near perfect as far as their intent goes. One of them is streaming currently on Bandcamp HERE.
Dødsferd (Greece) – Skotos (May 14th, 2021)
Genre – Atmospheric Black Metal
Release Date – May 14th, 2021
Record Label – Transcending Obscurity Records
For fans of – Darkthrone, Shining, Afsky, Ancst, Kampfar, Xasthur, Horna, Wardaemonic, Seedna
Greek black metal legends Dødsferd conjure up what’s arguably their best material yet. This is a step up still from their landmark album ‘Diseased Remnants of a Dying World’ and it retains the fiery, emotionally-charged black metal music on that one while improving upon the intensity and expression. The two songs are probably the most potent ones the band has to offer and it’s impossible not to be moved by the deeply harrowing music and plaintive cries of the vocalist who’s giving the performance of his career. Everything about the music is tempered to perfection and one can’t help but keep listening to them over and over again. This brand new ‘Skotos’ release is combined with the full length album in a brand new 12-panel digipak packaging for the CD while the vinyl will see a standalone 7″ edition, with the band’s own label FYC Records handling the combined tape edition. This special release is not to be missed.
