NINKHARSAG will release their hotly anticipated new album, titled The Dread March of Solemn Gods on April 30th via Vendetta Records. “The Dread March of Solemn Gods” will be available on regular black 12″ vinyl, limited edition gold 12″ vinyl, Digipack CD (with bonus track “The Lord of Death and Midnight”), Cassette and all digital streaming services. The band released their second single “Strigoi Diabolicum” and you can listen to it below.
Formed in 2009 with one desire; to create cold, majestic Black Metal in the classic, unspoilt style of old and drawing inspiration from masters such as MERCYFUL FATE, BATHORY, METALLICA to the Scandinavian scions of the 90’s like EMPEROR, DISSECTION and MAYHEM, NINKHARSAG rapidly established themselves in the UK as a unique and powerful force on the Black Metal. Following their latest, critically acclaimed album, The Blood Of Celestial Kings (Candlelight Records), the band’s upcoming output is uncompromising in its vision of what Black Metal should be in this era. It is a huge album full of wild, rousing anthems, massive, hook laden riffs and a somber, nocturnal beauty. It takes everything the band had originally sought to do from its inception and turns the volume up past 11. It is the perfect tincture of Black and Heavy Metal; a style of music mostly long lost in this day and age.
The Dread March of Solemn Gods was recorded and produced in 2019 at Foel Studios under the helm of Chris Fielding (CONAN, WINTERFYLLETH, PRIMORDIAL).
