Purity ThroughFire is proud to present Avskräde‘s striking debut album, Det stora tunga sjuka, on CD, A5 digipack, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats. The CD and tape versions shall be released on December 12th while the vinyl will follow in summer 2022.
A brand-new entity that sounds positively/negatively OLD, Avskräde hearken to the most ancient days of Scandinavian black metal, both in Norway and their native Sweden. The duo delivered a demo earlier in 2021, but now arrive from the coldest, purest past with a 36-minute full-length titled Det stora tunga sjuka. Right from the album’s opening seconds, there’s no mistaking that Avskräde play nothing but traditional BLACK METAL Exclusively. From the classic “Peaceville trilogy” of Darkthrone to Malicious-era Gorgoroth on to the early works of Sweden’s Craft and Armagedda, Det stora tunga sjuka invokes a nostalgia for grim, glorious times. Indeed, to arrive at its rustic sound, the band recorded the album during primitive conditions in the very north of Sweden, where it is cold and dark most of the time – something they endeavored to transfer to the music itself. And accomplish that they did, as Det stora tunga sjuka is authentically vintage black metal, even down to the Grieghallen-esque guitar tone. HAIL DEATH!!!
