The Swedish black metal unit return to form after 15 years of slumber.
Beneath C-G's kaleidoscope of vampires is a statement years in the making, one that follows a 2005 self-titled full-length. Said statement, titled Hinsides Vrede, comes by way of MÖRK GRYNING. The band's Season of Mist label debut arrives on October 23rd and finds the trio reinforcing their position among Sweden's black metal elite. To pave the way for the release, MÖRK GRYNING share lead single Fältherren, which comes accompanied by a Guilherme Henriques-directed music video.
Founder Goth Gorgon comments of the track:
"'Fältherren' is for me the essence of what MÖRK GRYNING is. Dark and brutal yet melodic and dynamic. Lyrically it's based on 'The Field Marshal,' a song included in Modest Mussorgsky's song cycle 'Songs and dances of death.' A part of the (translated from Russian) original lyric should suffice to explain its meaning:
"'Then, illuminated by moonlight, on her battle horse, shining with the whiteness of her bones, appeared Death; and in the silence, taking in moans and prayers, full of proud satisfaction, like a field marshal she circled around the place of battle.'"
