Naglfar - Cerecloth (New CD)
It has been a long eight years between releases for Umeå, Sweden's black metal nihilists Naglfar, but despite the wait, the band hasn't been resting on their laurels. Like any slumbering beast, Naglfar has returned from it's respite ferocious and hungry, with it's seventh full-length album, "Cerecloth". Recorded and mixed by Naglfar guitarist Marcus Norman at Wolf's Lair Studio and mastered by Dan Swanö at Unisound, the underlying musical and lyrical themes of "Cerecloth" were succinctly and confidently described by guitarist Andreas Nilsson as "the usual death and destruction". Judging from Andreas's curt description, and the grim, ghostly cover art from the renowned artist Kristian Wåhlin and layout by Seiya Ogino of Ogino Design, certain death is exactly what listeners will experience with "Cerecloth".
