Some gems and jewels are simply to good to be hidden! They are but marinating and aging under the surface to be revealed in their splendor exactly when they mean to. This is the case for The Weakening and their Masterpiece “Chains of Plato”! Created in 2012, to be released in late 2018 this album is pure quality of Swedish death metal, low-tuned, agressive, groovy and brutal. The five-piece gathered from bands like Divinefire, Crimson Moonlight, Exhale, Solution 45, Miseration and Renascent have really made something extraordinary. By joining forces they have created a mighty album that pierces into the depths of your soul. Let the percussional rythm, the fat stringssounds and the guttural growls shake your foundations, and let “Chains of Plato” loose!

The packaging on this release is a real beauty! CD comes in a digipak cover with a 8-page booklet containing lyrics and band photos. The album will be released on Dec. 1st. via Nordic Mission. Continue reading »

Nordic Mission are proud to announce the release of Frosthardr‘s self-titled fullength album on December 1st this year. Recorded years ago, the band has never been buried, just put on ice to be brought back to life every now and then. Last time was in 2015 at the Elements of Rock Festival in Switzerland and our own NordicFest. Only a few pre-release copies of this album was handed out at EoR. But now, the real deal is finally here and we are so proud and happy to present it to you.

Frosthardr, with their most active period around 2003-2007, was formed by Jokull in the late 90’s to bring a harsh and ice cold sound into the black metal scene. A scene in Norway, quite familiar with things such as church burnings and murders, these guys was more into bringing light into the darkness, a little bit of hope but at the same time not being afraid of doing critical world observations!

Musically, this full-length is more than “just” black metal, with their thrash and doom influences. Larry Farkas of Vengeance Rising is even doing two guest appearances, which made these guys very happy! Epic metal blended with agressivity right in your face. Pompous, but not symphonic, chaotic but also melodic, raw but still well-done… Continue reading »
