After a very promising EP released back in 2021 and a handful of singles that sparked folk metal fans' enthusiasm - especially the Scandinavian strain - VANSIND is finally ready to release its debut album, “Mørket”. With their feet planted firmly in the Danish soil, the band provides a solid soundtrack for battle, chain dance and raised horns with melodies inspired by folk music that meets solid metal, rumbling growls, and clean female singing. The lyrical themes are inspired by the darker side of Nordic mythology and Scandinavian history.
Where the glimmer of the eye meets the glimpse of the sword you’ll find Vansind. And, if you enter the dance, maybe you’ll get a glimpse of Valhal too.
“Mørket” will be released on LP (black vinyl, limited to 300) and digital formats via Mighty Music on November 17th, 2023.
