Norwegian black metal force, DEN SAAKALDTE, have teamed up with Invisible Oranges to launch a new track, ‘Djevelens Verk’, from the band’s upcoming full-length, “Kapittel II: Faen i Helvete”. The album is set to be released on May 27th in Europe and June 10th in North America via Agonia Records. The new song “Djevelens Verk” can be listened to here.
“Its [Djevelens Verk] middle is, typing this with zero intended hyperbole, heartfelt” – comments Invisible Oranges. “That’s when Eldur’s howls go clean. He presents himself as your equally world-weary avatar, a willing sponge if you’re over-saturated by hopelessness. Notes, last time: “It’s the wishing well Green Carnation, swelling with endless elasticity.” The build-up leads into a crescendo constructed of an Arcturus-ian celestial essence that, somehow, remains earthy. Again, contrasts. Counter-balances. Den Saakaldte are what they are in the moment you hear them. “Djevelens verk”? Maybe their best. Until the next song starts, one guesses“.
DEN SAAKALDTE steps out of the shadows after five long years of strengthening their dark musical identity and defining a more grim musical approach. Built upon intense and heavy emotions and featuring members of Gorgoroth, 1349, Koldbrann and Nidingr, “Kapittel II: Faen i Helvete” feels as the band’s most complete work to date. The album combines doom and black metal elements with clean vocals, spoken parts and obscure atmosphere.
The successor to “All Hail Pessimism” (2009) was recorded in Strand Studio in February 2014. The album will be available:
– in a 3 panel digipack CD,
– on vinyl (in three versions: black, blue and red),
