MISÞYRMING - Sophomore Album Out This Month, Details Revealed

Icelandic black metallers Misþyrming will release on 24th May via Norma Evangelium Diaboli their second full-length entiled Algleymi. Misþyrming hail from Reykjavík and since their formation in 2013, the band has put the Icelandic black metal scene on the international metal map, both with the sterling quality of their sparse-yet-momentous discography thus far as well as their spellbinding live performances across numerous festivals and tours of Europe. Although certain bands within that Icelandic black metal scene have been around slightly longer or have more prolific catalogs, it could be easily argued that Misþyrming are seen as Icelandic black metal's leading light - or bringers of light, a veritable Lucifer made manifest in white-hot black metal flesh.
Misþyrming's sophomore album is a kaleidoscopic worldwide of maverick black metal, Icelandic or otherwise. It retains for the relentless brutality of its debut predecessor while exhibiting a simultaneously taut and free-flowing muscularity. Similarly, the band's bold melodicism has reached a grandiose new level here, as haunting atmospheres meld with properly anthemic elements, exhibiting space and shade with equal rapture. And that's all to say nothing of the album's production; recorded and mixed by the band at the Icelandic Black Metal HQ and mastered by the esteemed Jamie Gomez Arellano at Orgone Studios, Misþyrming here exhibit a swaggering professionalism that's undeniably powerful and frankly unchallenged. From blasphemous ceremonies to a total rejection of humanity, Algleymi above all displays a maturity that safely evades the negative connotations otherwise associated with that word, especially within a black metal context. Front cover art and tracklisting are as follows below. Link
