Today, Svart Records sets February 17th, 2017 as the international release date for Hymn’s debut album, “Perish.” Hailing from the Oslo underground, Hymn has paved the way forward with multiple full stacks, hard-hitting drumming, and an uncompromising approach to volume and tonality.
A statement from the band reads: “A long, loud, thorough, emotional, and really fun process is finally documented into approximately 50 minutes of music, titled ‘Perish.’ The last year has surely been a defining one for us, and we are really proud of the result. The album is definitely a more brutal, more refined, and a much colder experience than our self-titled EP from 2013, and we do feel that this album really represents where we want to be musically right now.
“It’s recorded, mixed, and mastered by Kim Lillestøl at Amper Tone studio in Oslo, and we pretty much recorded the whole thing in 48 intense hours. We are really looking forward to take the album on the road, and are are super-stoked that Svart Records wants to release it.”
