LAANG (melodic black metal from Taiwan) release single DONGSHANG

Laang 冷 (Terror black metal from Taiwan) releases single Dongshang 冻伤 in anticipation of the upcoming release of their full album “Xinteng 心疼” on Talheim Records in July 2021. The lyric video is now available on YouTube, and full streaming available on all major music streaming platforms.

Laang 冷, based in Keelung City 基隆市 Taiwan is born from horrifying experiences of what lies beyond life by the band’s frontman 楊海濤 during a near-death experience when shot. While medically dead, 海濤 experienced what he can best describe as “a place beyond Hell”, a world of incomprehensible terror and desolation beyond explanation. The music of Laang 冷 represents the crushing terror and the misery associated with this event.

The band’s iconic musical style combines aggressive and non-canonical black metal riffing with melancholic melodies, tortured vocals performed in Mandarin Chinese, dark orchestras, and traditional erhu instrumentation. The music of Laang 冷 creates an emotionally-charged and tormented soundscape that is haunting, yet captivating.

The band’s debut album Hǎiyáng 海洋 (“Ocean”) was released in 2019 on Talheim Records, receiving the Kaohsiung City National Cultural Award and was featured in the Heavy Music Artwork Top 100 Album Covers of 2019, followed by headlining tours through Taiwan and Hong Kong. Laang 冷 releases their second album “Xinteng 心疼” (“Misery”) in 2021 which focuses on the depressive and melancholic trauma born from the experience. The band’s music has also been featured in several films and video games including “Panacea” (2021), “Rehabilitation” (2020), “Chronicler” (2022), and “Silver Squad” (2022).

Laang 冷 is:

楊海濤 (Yang Haitao) – Guitar, orchestration, vocals

戴敬緯 (Willy Krieg Tai) – Bass

李婉伶 (Li Wanling) – Drums
