The 11th September will see the release on Dark Essence Records of ALFAHANNE‘s sophomore full-length album “Blod Eld Alfa”, and today the label has debuted one of the nine tracks from the album. The track, “Skallerormsgift”, which actually received its first ever public airing on BBC Radio One last week, features KVELERTAK frontman Erlend Hjelvik on guest vocals and can be heard below:
Well known both on stage and in the studio for their brand of high energy Black Metal laced with Punk and Classic Rock, ALFAHANNE is a band that, since its inception in 2010, has managed to attract high profile musicians to guest with them not only on their releases but also live. TAAKE’s Hoest, HELHEIM’s V’gandr and SHINING’s Niklas Kvarforth all featured on the debut album “Alfapokalyps”, whilst on the new album, as well as Hjelvik, Spellgoth from HORNA and TURMION KÄTILÖT and Nattfursth from SORHIN add their distinctive styles and voices to the release. Also making a return appearance is SHINING’s Niklas Kvarforth, with whom ALFAHANNE has a history of collaboration.
Mastered by ENSLAVED’s Herbrand Larsen at Bergen’s Earshot Studios, and with artwork by Trine Grimm Lothe, “Blod Eld Alfa” features ALFAHANNE’s trademark sound, a sound that is full of the swagger and attitude that makes the band such a success both in the studio and on the stage.
