||German black metallers King Fear have confirmed that they will release their debut full-length album which is titled Frostbite on September 27th via Quality Steel Records/Soulfood. The album was composed and produced by Mål Dæth, and the mixing and mastering duties were handled by Olman Viper (Caliban, Dark Age, Deadlock).
After issuing their first self-titled five-track EP in 2012, the King Fear members went separate ways and while singer Nachtgarm toured the world performing with Negator and Dark Funeral, main composer Mål Dæth moved to the Austrian wilderness to create new music. Once winter struck again, the band gathered with their drummer Boneinn (ex-Eisenvater) in their hometown of Hamburg to start working on what was to become their first full-length album.
King Fear has created a full-length concept album based on the "conquest of the useless" — mankind's possessive desire of reaching the highest mountain peaks.
Driven by the realization of how well these old tales of desire, passion, myth, ancient belief and frigid heights fit the King Fear version of black metal, they decided to call it Frostbite. Musically, Frostbite is rooted in straight-forward black metal with a slap of black'n'roll.
