The third full-length offering from Copenhagen-based SOLBRUD, Vemod – a grandiose, storming, bleak piece of art foreseeing the demise of mankind carried forward by the band’s unique brand of black metal – is out today worldwide, a co-release between Indisciplinarian and Vendetta Records.
Vemod strongly consolidates SOLBRUD as a band with a special, artistic vision as already shown on their prior albums, Solbrud (2012) and Jærtegn (2014). Vemod is a vivid display of SOLBRUD’s wuthering and highly expressive black metal that is accompanied by 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 was 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. Like the band’s two previous albums, the record consists of four tracks, which this time makes up a playing time of fifty epic and intense minutes.
SOLBRUD is playing play a single release show at Ungdomshuset in the hometown of Copenhagen on tonight, on the day of the album’s release. A full European tour and Scandinavian Fall dates will be announced shortly.
