Bringing together some of the most creative and dismal hearts of the Black Metal scene, DOEDSVANGR used the last years to craft nine new compositions which form their second album. On October 29th, “Serpents Ov Old” was finally unleashed on CD, vinyl, and digitally via Debemur Morti Productions.
Listen to the album via the label’s Bandcamp page or YouTube channel:
Originally, Norwegian vocalist Doedsadmiral (NORDJEVEL) teamed up with AntiChristian (ex-TSJUDER) and guitarist Shatraug (SARGEIST) to express raw brutality through music. For “Serpents Ov Old“, French guitarist and well-known artist BST (THE ORDER OF APOLLYON) joined the band and left his uncanny mark on the album. To grant “Serpents Ov Old” an additional edge, DOEDSVANGR also recruited Vicotnik (DØDHEIMSGARD) and Nag (TSJUDER) to appear as guest vocalists on three compositions on the album.
Frontman Doedsadmiral narrates about the importance of “Serpents Ov Old” for the band:
“The album “Serpents Ov Old” represents a new level as well as a new era for DOEDSVANGR. Music, production, dedication to evil and to the Lord has made the band tighter and more determined. It will also take the band to the stages in 2022. “Serpents Ov Old” is a defining beast for the band itself. Revel in the darkness!“
DOEDSVANGR was founded in 2014 by Doedsadmiral with the specific intention of expressing raw brutality through music. He set the bar high when it came to his wish-list of people to work with, and in no time TSJUDER’sAntiChristian joined on drums, later to be joined by the infamous Shatraug (SARGEIST), thereby fulfilling Doedsadimral’s vision. The name DOEDSVANGR itself has two different meanings, and can mean both “fields of death” and “dead womb”.
In 2015 DOEDSVANGR signed a contract with Immortal Frost Productions and the band’s 2017 debut album, “Satan Ov Suns”, proved to be the perfect blend of Black Metal from Finland and Norway.
In 2019, BST (THE ORDER OF APOLLYON, ex-AOSOTH) joined DOEDSVANGR on guitar, and work commenced on the follow up album. Having inked a deal with Debemur Morti Productions, the new album, titled “Serpents Ov Old”, is set for release in late 2021.
DOEDSVANGR also signed with the booking agency Flaming Arts so that the band could progress to becoming a live entity.
