Svartsot - New Album Details Revealed

Maledictus Eris, the new upcoming album of Danish folk metal band Svartsot will be released in July/August.

The band released the following statement: "We're proud to be able to release the cover artwork and tracklist for the third Svartsot album; Maledictus Eris. As previously announced, the album recounts the tale of the Black Death's incursion into Danish history from 1349 to 1350. The album begins the tale from just prior to the plague's arrival through to when the first bout relinquished its grasp, and focuses on the way the epidemic affected the population - from victim to survivor. We have taken more inspiration from medieval music than on previous albums, and the feel of the album in general has taken a darker and more emotive turn on this recording.

We are extremely satisfied with the way this album has turned out and hope that the fans - both old and new - will take kindly to it. But at the same time, we should also make clear that this album is somewhat different to its predecessors, and not for the worse as far as we're concerned.

We have a series of live dates in Denmark lined up for after the release, and hope to be able to add more European dates to the list soon. News on dates and leading up to the release will be posted as soon as we have it."

åsome news. Hopefully it will live up to the first one. The second was a bit of a let-down for me.
