Norwegian Metallers ‘Drottnar’ to Enter the Studio Next Month to Begin Recording New Album


Drottnar bandNorway’s technical avant garde metallers [They call it selves Bunker Metal] Drottnar reported the following:

“We are utterly excited to share with you that, in two weeks, we are again entering the darkest and filthiest corridors of our bunker, packed with new armour, to record our next full length album!! There are ten massive tracks to be recorded, an extremely sharp set of word to be screamed, and we are confident you, our dear bunkerloving mob, will get what you deserve! NEI!”

Their long-awaited full-lenght album “Stratum” has been released on CD, Limited Digibook, Vinyl LP, worldwide on September 27th. 2013 via Endtime Productions.

Drottnar offers a highly addictive and distinctly unique blend of modern technical bunker metal. For fans of avantgarde and experimental extreme metal spanning a wide range and for once truly difficult to label. Mastered by Tom Kvålsvoll [Emperor, Arcturus, Borknagar]

Ending seven years of silence, Norways Drottnar return fire with a hail of sonic bullets. Through eight tracks of disharmonic bunker metal they force seemingly formless structures into terrifying monoliths of industrial strength. Precisely dissonant, surgically passionate – “Stratum” channels a claustrophobic, schizophrenic creativity that is highly unconventional and destroys all pretenders.

The long awaited follow up to Drottnar’s critically acclaimed debut album “Welterwerk” [2006] takes technical, experimental metal to the next level proving the scene is not only alive, but needs further clarification on the meaning of heaviness.

Unapologetic blackened metal for those seeking the extreme end of the genre. And when we say extreme, we do mean extreme, pushing the concepts of extremity as no others do! “Stratum” [plural: strata] – a layer of sedimentary rock or soil with internally consistent characteristics that distinguish it from other layers.
