It was a tricky question… How would Swedish duo VINTERSORG continue after 2014’s intriguing album “Naturbål”? Shunning repetition, vocalist and mastermind Andreas “Vintersorg” Hedlund did the unthinkable and composed a sequel to his groundbreaking 1998 album “Till Fjälls”, which is considered to be one of the most important albums in the genre of black/folk metal!
What to expect from “Till Fjälls Del II”? No scientific lyrical concept, no progressive trickery, but a heartfelt return to snowcapped mountains, pure nature-inspired mysticism, Nordic folklore and real black metal with a captivating epic streak. VINTERSORG share a vision of equally harsh and melodic soundscapes that melt the raging extremes of the late ’90s with the focus of 2016.
The worldwide album release is set for June 30 via Napalm Records.
