ORM: Black Metal Horde Announces Debut Album For March Release Through Indisciplinarian
On their self-titled debut album, Orm incorporates epic, melodic black metal, and its Nordic melancholy with a rocking, swinging feel, while thematically conveying a mythical cosmos of ancient times, where magic, gods, and supernatural creatures inhabited the world as naturally as humans, animals, water, and forests. The album consists of five lengthy tracks of vivid proportions recorded live in the studio by producer Lasse Ballade (Solbrud, Halshug, Slægt) in Copenhagen in their native Denmark with additional choir recordings in the local Stefans Church. The album artwork is an oil painting on canvas created by the masterful Italian artist Paolo Girardi, who is known for his work with bands such as Bell Witch, Inquisition, and Black Breath. Orm now shares the first excerpts from the record along with its unique artwork through an album trailer created by visual artist Morten Grønnegaard.
