KVALVAAG - New Album Out In July, Presents First Track

  • Print

Norwegian black metallers Kvalvaag have released a promo video for the track "Bergtatt", taken from their upcoming third full-length album Seid, which will be released on 30th July via Dusktone.
As the band's founder Kvalvaag explains, the choice of "Bergtatt" was deliberate in that, "the track has a natural progression from our previous release, with a stronger focus on groove and atmosphere, rather than tempo. It serves as a nice indication of how Kvalvaag sounds in 2018 - trolls, forests and atmosphere all the way. Sit back and let it drag you through the darkest pits of old Norwegian folklore and history".
Kvalvaag was formed in Oslo in 2012 as a project in which Øyvind "Kvalvaag" Kvalvågnes (Astaroth, Valgaldr, Attentat), could immerse himself completely, each step of the way, from writing, to recording to performing. Joined on drums by Telol (Astaroth, Troll, Sarpedon), Kvalvaag proceeded to release two full-length albums before beginning work on Seid.
The album was written and partially recorded between the summer of 2016 and spring of 2017 at the Kvalvaag Studios by Kvalvaag himself on guitars, synth, bass and vocals. Drums were recorded at Studio Hemstad, and vocals at the Kvalsonic Lab. Seid was mixed and mastered by Tom Kvålsvoll at the Kvalsonic Lab in Oslo. Additional vocals were performed by Rammr (Ragnarok, Elvarhøi), and comes with artwork done by Khaos Diktator Design. Listen now to "Bergtatt" in the player below. Link
