Ragnarok - Ninth Studio Album Announced, Details Unveiled

Ragnarok are proud to announce details for their ninth studio album. It will be ntitled Non Debellicata and will see the light on November 15th, 2019 worldwide through Agonia Records. Non Debellicata was recorded in Endarker Studio, Sweden, with Marduk's bassist Devo at the helm. Pre-orders are already available at this location.

While musically the album is deeply embedded in Norwegian Black Metal, it holds a strong historical context, specific to Norway and the band's origin. Ragnarok reveals more in the following comment:

"Our new album, Non Debellicata, is the result of an extensive process in which all the members of the band participated creatively, both musically and lyrically. We put a lot of work into this album to make it as extreme and violent as we possibly could, pushing the borders of our musicianship and song writing skills. Originally we started out with 20 songs, out of which we rehearsed 16 and whittled it down to 13 for recording. We eventually chose 10 for inclusion on the album, because we wanted to ensure highest possible quality of every song."

"Non Debellicata, refers to a phrase used as the motto for our home town Saropsborg in the olden days. It is taken from letter Jarl Alv Erlingsson sent to the Scottish Government in 1286. Aside from being a nobleman and the Jarl (Earl) of Sarpsborg, Alv was also an infamous pirate who was in the habit of robbing Danish and German merchant ships. The Scottish government had confiscated a number of Norwegian ships and Jarl Alv wrote them a letter, in which he said that maybe they were under the impression that Norway was weak after being at war for several years. But assured them that they would learn that the Norwegian people were not weakened by the war and would never be defeated."
