VARGRAV - New Album Out In April, Two Tracks Available For Streaming

Finnish one-man black metal act Vargrav announced that 26th April will be a release date of the sophomore album entitled Reign In Supreme Darkness. The album will be released via Werewolf Records in conspiracy with Hells Headbangers.
The root of Vargrav originated during starless nights in late 2015. Working in clandestine solitude, sole creator V-Khaoz - a prolific veteran of the Finnish black metal underground, dating back to the late '90s - soon shaped the initial vision of Vargrav's debut album and submitted it, in demo form, to various labels. During the the summer of 2016, Werewolf Records was immediately chosen to be the most suitable collaborator with which to work, and the sinister glow of the black flame began to burn brighter...
And now, V-Khaoz returns to quickly eclipse that feat with Vargrav's second album, Reign In Supreme Darkness. Ever aptly titled, Reign In Supreme Darkness is essentially an intensification and consolidation of Netherstorm's most enduring traits, expanding the band's lexicon by basically speaking it more boldly than before. Still a swarming, densely layered maelstrom of medieval majesty and moonlit madness, here Vargrav heightens the drama that's latently laid at the band's core, focusing the attack into more finessed form, and stripping away some of its predecessor's more blizzard-blown excesses. In their stead arrives a more dynamic approach to songwriting, varying tempos while maximizing movement, and an overall more mournful and mysterious aspect to the prominent layers of synth.
Before the official release, hear the new Vargrav tracks "In Streams From Great Mysteries" and "As The Shadows Grow Silent" in the players below. Link
