In advance of the album’s release, today new song “Die Dunkelheit Darbt” comes online and can be heard below. Bartsch comments that the song “breaks away from the once-strong trademarks of a unique subgenre destined for pure darkness and occultism. The End is Nigh? Sure, why not? And we love it.”

Per Valla Launches New Band Valla

In April 2015, it was announced that Abbath (ex-Immortal frontman) had recruited members to his new band, specifically King Ov Hell from God Seed and drummer Creature. He also recruited Vredehammer guitarist / vocalist Per Valla for touring.

However, in December of 2015 it was announced that Norwegian session member Per Valla had left the band for personal reasons.

Sitting on many songs and riffs of his own, Per decided to launch his new project, simply titled Valla. He had this to say about the new endeavor:

“The plan is to do this project a little against the current. The music business is just so messed up today and because of that I will record at home and release this on YouTube. If anyone wants to buy the music, they can download it directly from me for 1 euro per song. This way I don`t have to give 99% of everything to Spotify or other services. It`s just not fair!”
