Dødheimsgard, Norway’s premier experimental extremists, are back this year in a much welcome return. Bands like Shining and Blut Aus Nord, Aborym or even Ihsahn have pushed the boundaries of what extreme metal with black metal seeds can be but DHG have a particularly unhinged and evocative brand of musical mastery within their grip.
DHG recently announced details of their fifth album, titled ‘A Umbra Omega’, set for release on March 16th on Peaceville Records, have posted a new track online. The near 15 minute “Aphelion Void” is a thrill ride of crazy vocals beholden to no limits, dissonant and haunting passages, startling instrumental turns and an overall rebellious attitude sure to please the discerning metal fan. Check out this bad motherfucker of a new song HERE.
This is the band’s first release since 2007′ still buzz worthy Supervillain Outcast.
