Swedish black death juggernauts HUMANITY’S LAST BREATH have announced the release of new album Välde, the apocalyptically heavy follow-up to 2019’s Abyssal, on 12th February 2021 via Unique Leader.
Meaning ‘Empire’ in Swedish, Välde is a darker, bleaker journey than it’s predecessor, with a further emphasis on the atmospheric nature of the band’s sound and the use of dissonance, creating a claustrophobic, dense record that pulverises the senses. Almost uncomfortably bleak at times, echoes of the likes of Ulver and Meshuggah are present on Välde, combining perfectly with HLB‘s signature blackened groove template that they have become renowned. An atomic bomb of a record – this is HUMANITY’S LAST BREATH in their coldest, nastiest form.
