Svarttjern Dodsskrik on Limited Edition LP
Svarttjern have joined forces with Soulseller Records and are ready to unleash their new and fourth album Dødsskrik on the label. Svarttjern was originally formed as a two-man-project in 2003 by HansFyrste and HaaN. The two brothers soon decided to bring up a full line-up in order to do some live shows, and to take the band to new levels. Later that same year Skabb, Grimdun and Fjellnord joined the duo, and Svarttjern started to work on their first demo recordings.
Over the next years two demos were recorded, "Blasphemic War" and "Raped by Svarttjern," but Svarttjern were still working towards their own sound, so not much time was given to the demos afterwards. In 2007, Svarttjern parted ways with Skabb, and Terror came in on the bass, bringing fresh blood. The band was now ready to record a three track demo to finally show the sound they had been working on for so many years. Demo 07 was sent out to labels and only printed in very few numbers for sale.
Svarttjern signed to Schwarzdorn Production and released their debut album Misanthropic Path of Madness in 2009, which received great feedback and reviews from all over the world. Second full-length, Towards the Ultimate, was released in 2011 via Agonia Records and took their extreme art to the next level. Between 2012 and 2013, Svarttjern mostly focused on playing live shows and chose to end their bond with Agonia Records.
In 2014 the band's third album Ultimatum Necrophilia was released by Noise Art Records and showed an even more brutal side. Later that year the band managed to get on tour with some of the most iconic bands within the scene, namely Behemoth, Cradle of Filth, Inquisition and In Solitude. Which brings us up to date with Dodsskrik where you can expect nothing but true Norwegian black metal of the highest order!
