PATRICIA THOMAS Management has issued as follows:
The first details of the latest album from Norwegian Black Metallers CREST OF DARKNESS have just been revealed. Active on the Norwegian Black Metal scene since the mid-nineties, CREST OF DARKNESS, with its sonic brutality and dark themes, was founded by musician Ingar Amlien, who left behind his roots in progressive metal to create a vehicle that would allow him to express his interest in Satanic ideology and vampirism. Scheduled for release on the 11th February 2013 on My Kingdom Music, the ten-track album will be titled “In the Presence of Death” and promises to be the most complete, extreme and dark album the band has ever recorded.
Recently CREST OF DARKNESS announced the addition of DJEVELKULT guitarist Jan Fredrik Solheim to replace the outgoing Kjell Arne Hubred, a seven year veteran with the band who was leaving to devote more time to his young family, which, according to Amlien, was entirely understandable given that the band had plans increase activity with the upcoming release of the album. Solheim, he went on to say has “brought a renewed sense of enthusiasm and purpose to the band, and as far as I’m concerned CREST OF DARKNESS is sounding better and stronger than ever”. Aside from Amlien on bass and vocals and Solheim on guitars, CREST OF DARKNESS’ current lineup includes Rebo on guitars and Kjetil Hektoen on drums.
More details about the album will be available shortly, and further information about CREST OF DARKNESS can be found at http://www.crestofdarkness.com.
