(Physical & Digital)

Laang冷 (“Cold”) announces the release of their second full-length album Xinteng 心疼 from Talheim Records on 30 September 2021. Laang 冷, a post-black metal band originating in Keelung Taiwan is born from the horrifying experience of the band’s frontman楊海濤 during a near-death experience when shot. Xinteng 心疼, meaning “emotional turmoil” and “to love dearly” in Mandarin, is the musical representation of the pain, misery, and terror associated with this trauma and recovery.

The music of Laang冷 combines aggressive non-canonical black metal riffing with melancholic melodies, tortured vocals performed in Mandarin Chinese, dark orchestras, and traditional erhu instrumentation. Their music creates an emotional and tormented soundscape that is haunting, yet captivating. While
the band’s award-winning debut album Haiyang海洋 (2019) was based on the terror of being medically dead, Xinteng 心疼 rather explores the post-traumatic emotional pain of a survivor coming to grips with their own mortality. Through this emotional atmosphere, Laang 冷 drowns listeners in their immersive sea of torment.

Xinteng 心疼 delivers 8 emotionally-charged tracks that waste no time in immersing listeners in 海濤’s nightmare. Dark and depressing, yet with a haunting beauty, Laang 冷crafts an unforgettable musical experience that will touch the hearts of fans of Harakiri for the Sky, Alcest, Chthonic, White Ward, and Psychonaut 4. Drown in the melancholic nightmare of Laang 冷 with Xinteng 心疼 on 30 September 2021.

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

戴敬緯 (Willy Krieg Tai) – Bass

李婉伶 (Li Wanling) – Drums

Xinteng 心疼 releases worldwide on 30 September 2021. The album can be purchased from the Talheim Records webstore and Bandcamp.
