Swedish Melodic Black Metallers KVAEN have launched a lyric video for ‘Bestial Winter’ taken from their latest album ‘The Funeral Pyre’, out via Black Lion Records, watch the video below.
In late February, a sudden conflagration burst forth in Northern Sweden. That raging fire was the release of The Funeral Pyre, and it still burns hot and true. Kvaen is a new one-man project, with several guest musicians, that comes out of the gates full of vigor. Rooted in Swedish black metal, with speed and viking metal liberally sprinkled throughout, Kvaen is a force to be reckoned with. The riffing manages to combine white hot aggression with blistering melody, while the drumming is a runaway train set to explode. The vocals channel the hatred of trve black metal, while still providing a varied performance. With good reason, The Funeral Pyre has been mentioned in early Album of the Year discussions. Catch the spark!

Stream below the new single ‘Septem Peccata Mortalia’ taken from the KVAEN‘s debut album, “The Funeral Pyre”, due out on 28th February via Black Lion Records.
Funeral Pyre delivers well-executed black metal, exploring the ‘80s infernal speed metal reign and breathing the vision of Viking age, cold steel, death, and Ragnarök. Charged with diabolic melodies, this album grabs the listeners and takes them on a wild ride through mysterious barren wastelands of northern Sweden. KVAEN keeps the listener engaged with a knife against the throat until the last moment of Funeral Pyre.
The album features contributions from various musicians, including Sebastian Ramstedt (Necrophobic, ex: Nifelheim) and Perra Karlsson (In Aeternum, Nominon, ex: Destroyer 666).
