German black metal act FRIISK will release their highly anticipated debut full length album, titled …un torügg bleev blot Sand, on July 2nd 2021 via cult label Vendetta Records. FRIISK unleashed “Dem Wind entgegen“, the first single taken off the upcoming album. You can give it a listen below.
“The first single from our debut full-length “…un torügg bleev blot Sand” titled ‘Dem Wind entgegen‘ revolves around the idea of steady progress, even when it seems to go nowhere.” the band states.
New album …un torügg bleev blot Sand consists of 48 minutes with 7 independent, yet musically deeply connected songs which blend the harsh but melodic sound of German old school black metal acts of the nineties with the atmospheric edge of modern black metal artists, while drawing massive influences from the North German landscapes, giving the band their distinctive sound which moves between aggression and melancholy. Negative experiences of individual human beings, packed into various stories which explore the realities of fear, devastation, depression, illness and death are the breeding ground for a beautifully composed black metal record that stands up with all the greats.
Artwork and design by Chris Kiesling from Misanthropic-Art and the tracklisting reads as follows:
2. Dem Wind entgegen
5. Mauern aus Nebel
6. Torügg bleev blot Sand (feat. Zingultus from ENDSTILLE / NAGELFAR)
