DOMGÅRD are set to release their highly anticipated third album Ödelagt December 1 on Carnal Records Five long years since the release of sophomore album Myrkviðr, the Gothenburg band has returned with 12 tracks of fierce Black Metal in the finest Swedish tradition with a thematic focus on the dark and enlightening aspects of Germanic mythology, magic and custom.
DOMGÅRD was founded in 1997 by Vindkall, Orm & Trollheim. The following years Ulv joined as a drummer and Illbrand as a vocalist. Some unofficial rehearsal demos were recorded. In 2000 three of four members were imprisoned for several years. Four years later Vindkall and Ulv recorded the demo Blodskald before Vindkall continued on his own until 2008 when the drummer Hrimner and the bass player Hraegelmir (Panphage) joined. In 2009 DOMGÅRD recorded five tracks for a split with Cursed 13 which was released on the winter solstice the same year. The following year Heljarmadr (Cursed 13, Grá, Dark Funeral) joined the trio and contributed on two fullength albums, I Nifelhels Skygd (2010) and Myrkviðr (2012). Askr joined as the new bass player in 2013 and Mardröm as a second guitarist in 2014.
"Domgård's black metal reveres the darker side of Germanic paganism, and it certainly shines through in their music. Ödelagt's melodic presence emerges from that shadowy, trollish place of humanity's innate darkness."
- Invisible Oranges
"Devotees of traditional Scandinavian black metal should give this a listen at their earliest convenience."
- Sentinel Daily
"This is a hugely impressive album. One that ticks many of the right boxes for black metal that melds several different styles together well."
