Woland - the post black metal band from Helsinki, Finland - will release new album "Hyperion" on February 24th in Europe via Indie Recordings. Pre-orders are available at this location, and a new teaser trailer is now available below.

The first single "Conquer All" is already out, and today is the release of the 2nd single "Living Water," available through major digital outlets. Indie Recordings also comments:

"The music of Woland relies on a foundation without boundaries and a focused vision.

This is music deeply rooted in Black Metal, with a twist of Woland." More...

Woland To Release "Hyperion" Album

Woland's new album "Hyperion" will be released through Indie Recordings on February 24th worldwide and you can pre-order the album right here.

The first single of the album "Conquer All" is out today on all digital services like iTunes and Spotify. Indie Recordings comments:

"Woland's music relies on a foundation without boundaries and a focused vision. When others crawl in the mud and idolize the past, the band gazes to the future with a Nietzschean vision and welcome it with opened arms. The core idea is to rise above one self and become one with divinity, to be everything you can be. While the music and lyrics are not tied to any specific events or follow any single dogma, they are heavily influenced by some of the modern worlds most prominent philosophers and writers as well as inspired by mythology with its gods and heroes."

Catch the band live:

20.02.2014 NOR Bergen, Blastfest
6.-8.6.2014 HRV Underwall in Zadar More...

Woland Working On Debut Album

Finnish post black metal group Woland is currently in the studio recording a debut full-length album. The group previously released a two song cut entitled "Conquer All & Live Forever," which has already been available for streaming online since February.

Woland's frontman, also known as Cavus vocalist W, states the following:

"We are currently working in our guitarist LXIV's own studio, west of Helsinki. Most of the drum parts are done, as well as the bass and big parts of the guitars. The plan is to have the basics done by July so we can start the vocal recordings in August. Having a private and yet modern location where to conduct the recordings gives us a lot of freedom to experiment with different technologies and ways of production, so we are taking our time.

"We will have some great guest musicians on the album for which we may need to re-locate a bit, but I don't want to give out any spoilers yet. All in all I'm personally very enthusiastic with this album. While my work in black metal so far has mostly been about the grit, dirt and uglyness, this is the perfect moment to show the other side of the same coin."

The band previously stated that the still unnamed album "will portray some of the most powerful songs and lyrics portrayed in this genre" and that Woland is "embarking on a voyage for extraordinary spiritual clarity, striving for that endless splendor and eternal mind."
