Another new week – and you know what that means! It’s time for a brand new playlist, so check out what we’ve been listening to below, or stream the playlist in full over on our last.fm.
Glittertind – Høyr min song (Til Fridomen)
It’s official! Glittertind are back and their new album Blåne for blåne is incredible – our review of which can be read here. Blåne for blåne is set to be released a week today on April 27 but for those who need a bit more convincing, or can’t wait until then to hear some new music from Glittertind, you can currently stream their single Høyr min song (Til Fridomen) below.
My Grimace – Dire Need
It’s not just Glittertind that has been offering up great new material, and another band that is getting ready to drop an excellent album is My Grimace. Grim Serenades is a rather good listen and a well-developed first release, showcasing a great togetherness to the band and proving that they’re a force to be reckoned with. It’s a true relentless listen from start to finish, and definitely worth checking out if you like your music energetic, relentless and hard-hitting.
Satyricon – K.I.N.G.
We’ve also been busy gigging and almost a fortnight ago, we caught Satyricon live at Sound Control in Manchester and you can read our review and see all the photos here. An all-round great gig, there was something magical about witnessing their track K.I.N.G. live again. Sure, it is perhaps their most famous song but if anything, that just greatened the impact of the performance.
Vredehammer – Cthulhu
Supporting the aforementioned Satyricon was the magnificent Vredehammer, although due to some delays and problems they were only able to play two songs. Despite this, it was a momentum-filled performance and it was particularly good to see that this video was an accurate depiction of how you can expect to react to listening to their music. Hopefully they’ll be back in the UK soon, but for now, check out this masterpiece from the band’s latest effort, Vinteroffer!
Thyrien – My Victory, My Defeat
I first discovered Thyrien a few months before I flew out to Jyväskylä to see Vorna performing live, as they were going to be the main support at the show – and I was completely blown away by them, both on CD and in a live environment. I am now going to be flying to Finland to see them again in Lahti on Friday and it looks set to be another great show, with Frosttide and Kivimetsän Druidi also on the bill. If you haven’t heard of them yet, then get involved with their track My Victory, My Defeat below!
