UPRISING! Records continue expanding its family and we’re very pround to announce the signing of the Danish folk metal band VANSIND. The seven-piece group from Slagelse is already making some ripples in the domestic scene with merely two singles and one EP released in the last few months and it’s now time to take the next step and bring them to the international scene with a full-length studio album.
”After the completion of ’Den Farefulde Tour’ in the autumn of 2021, Vansind is now ready for the next voyage”, the band says.”We are therefore happy to announce, that we have signed an agreement with UPRISING! Records for the release of our debut full-length album, which we are currently working on and expect to record during 2022. Target’s position as a forerunner in the Danish metal community, including folk metal, makes us believe that this is the next logical step that can bring Vansind further out to all our danish and foreign listeners. We are certain that this cooperation with UPRISING! Records will be beneficial for us both, and we are eager to see what we can achieve together.”
Vansind was formed in the summer of 2019 as a folk-inspired metal band. The band is based in Slagelse, Denmark, though the members are from all over the country. Just as the members’ geographical difference their musical background is also vastly different, they share their love for the music and a wish to add something special to the Danish folk scene. With their feet planted firmly in the Danish soil the band wishes to make the soundtrack for battle, chain dance and raised horns with melodies inspired by folk music that meets solid metal, rumbling growls and clean female singing. The lyrical themes are inspired from the darker side of Nordic mythology and Scandinavian history.
Debuting in 2020 with the single ’Valborgsnat’ (Walpurgis’ Night) and the three-song ep ’MXIII’ in 2021, Vansind is ready to play the songs to the wider international public. Bring your mead and maidens and join us for an energetic folk metal night. Where the glimmer of the eye meets the glimpse of the sword you’ll find Vansind. And if you enter the dance, maybe a glimpse of Valhal.
