Epic black metal group SOLBRUD is set to release their third full length offering Vemod on June 9th via Indisciplinarian and Vendetta Records. The 11-minute album opus Forfald is now streaming exclusively through US site Metal Injection before its official single release on digital platforms this coming Friday 19th.

SOLBRUD recently announced the release of their third full length Vemod, an album proclaiming the imminent fall of mankind musically accompanied by the band’s unique and grandiose variety of black metal. Vemod strongly consolidates SOLBRUD as a band with a special, artistic vision unfolding in non-compromising and boundary pushing black metal, as already shown on the two previous albums Solbrud (2012) and Jærtegn (2014). This coming Friday May 19th, the 11-minute opus Forfald ('Decay') from the new album will be released as a digital single, but as of now, the track is streaming exclusively via American metal site Metal Injection.

Forfald is a centerpiece on Vemod; musically in its vivid display of SOLBRUD’s wuthering and highly expressive black metal, while the track also lyrically conveys the main theme of the record: The forthcoming destruction of mankind due to its folly and greed and also the rejection of the ways that are leading us to our demise. The record holds a pessimistic view on mankind but also expresses a profound affection for nature, our origin and its forces around and within us. As the previous album, Vemod is recorded with producer Lasse Ballade (Orm, Halshug, Slægt) in his Ballade Studios in Copenhagen, while the legendary Flemming Rasmussen (Metallica, Morbid Angel, Rainbow) has overseen the mastering. Similar to the the band’s two previous albums, the record consists of 4 tracks, which this time makes up a playing time of 50 epic and intense minutes.
