Following the acclaimed debut album “Life of a Purist”, Danish black metal solo project UDÅNDE has announced to release its sophomore full length record, entitled “Slow Death – A Celebration of Self-Hatred”, on December 2nd via Vendetta Records. Founded and led by Rasmus Ejlersen, who now lives in Bratislava, Slovakia, “Slow Death – A Celebration of Self-Hatred” offers six deeply connected songs, packed with the band’s bleak and mesmerizing black metal atmosphere.
Thematically, this album is the personal journey of Rasmus Ejlersen, “a timeline (2009 – 2022) of private, profound experiences with anxiety attacks, depression and anti-depressant medication.”
“Each song depicts specific time periods of my existence from which were significant for my previous internal struggles” Rasmus comments.
Tracklist reads as follows:
- I’m Not a Pessimist, I’m a Realist
- Who Got Diagnosed Years Later
- and Denied All Sense and Reason
- I Mean, Who am I to Blackout?
- We Should Welcome the Suffering,
- Remember Not to Praise the False King
“Slow Death – A Celebration of Self-Hatred” was mixed and mastered by Patrick McDowall (Spectral Wound) in Montreal, Canada, and with the lyric video for “I’m Not a Pessimist, I’m a Realist” Udånde has just released the first single as well as the album opening track.
“Slow Death – A Celebration of Self-Hatred” will be coming out December 2nd on Vendetta Records and is now available for pre-order HERE
