Sweden's GRAFVITNIR to Release 'Keys to the Mysteries Beyond' December 15 on Carnal Records

Grafvitnir Swedish Black Metal band GRAFVITNIR have announced the December 15 Carnal Records release of new album Keys to the Mysteries Beyond. A promo video for the album's opening track, "Nidhögg," can be viewed here.



The scales of the age-old Serpent glisten through the holographic Universe, and glimpses of unseeable vistas flash before the inner eyes of the spiritual seeker.

Just like razor sharp claws of a Werewolf move and twists against whirling moonlit Night Skies, the ice-cold blades of Occultism will tear the illusion of the demiurg's false Creation apart and fiercely widen the cracks and crevices to the ancient kingdom of Beyond.

With the band's fifth album, GRAFVITNIR are back from the frostbitten shadows of Scandinavia to eternally ignite the concealed spiritual Fire of the descendants of the Serpent, and to obtain the ancient Keys to the Mysteries Beyond.

Ten pitch-black and ferocious anthems, permeated by the blazing Gnosis of Pleroma, carried by the freezing Night Winds from the most bewildering and furthest edges of Beyond.

Blistering cold Scandinavian Occult Black Metal fiercely performed and crowned with a haunting piece of art from Daniele Valeriani.

The driving force behind the band is, and has always been, Occultism and the never-ending quest for the enigmatic emerald of Lucifer. Just like razor sharp claws of a Werewolf move and twists against whirling moonlit Night Skies, the ice-cold blades of Occultism will tear the illusion of the demiurg's false Creation apart and fiercely widen the cracks and crevices to the ancient kingdom of Beyond.

With the band's fifth album, GRAFVITNIR are back from the frostbitten shadows of Scandinavia to eternally ignite the concealed spiritual Fire of the descendants of the Serpent, and to obtain the ancient Keys to the Mysteries Beyond.
