Post black metal band Woland have just announced their signing to Indie Recordings and will be releasing their studio album Hyperion next year on February 24.
Woland’s music relies on a foundation without boundaries and a focused vision. When others crawl in the mud and idolise the past, the band gazes to the future with a Nietzschean vision and welcome it with opened arms. The core idea is to rise above one self and become one with divinity, to be everything you can be. While the music and lyrics are not tied to any specific events or follow any single dogma, they are heavily influenced by some of the modern world’s most prominent philosophers and writers as well as inspired by mythology with its gods and heroes.
Founded in the year 2010, Woland released a double single called Conquer All & Live Forever in February 2011 for the international event Finnish Metal Expo. While the songs have been freely streamable online, Woland concentrated on writing their full length album Hyperion, which is since completed and features elements from flamenco guitar to jazz piano, resulting in a unique and modern outcome. The album also features additional vocal performances from artists Geir Bratland (Dimmu Borgir), Mathias ‘Vreth’ Lillmåns (Finntroll) and Janica Lönn (Black Sun Aeon).
We’re very excited about this – are you?
