KVAEN harkens back to the sound of blue-cover black metal from the 90s…” – Decibel Magazine
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).
