Norwegian black metal band Endezzma has inked a deal with Pulverised Records for the release of a sophomore full-length album.
The finishing touches are currently being applied to the album, and it is anticipated that it will be released in the spring. Commenting on the move to Pulverised, frontman and founder Morten Shax had this to say:
“We’re excited to be working with the guys from Pulverised as they have shown that they understand the band and what we are trying to achieve with our music, and that they are willing to work with us to that end.”
The album will follows 2012’s “Erotik Nekrosis,” with full details still forthcoming. Aside from Shax on vocals, Endezzma’s lineup also includes Mattis Malphas (Beastcraft, Koldbrann) and Nihil on guitars, Carl Balam (Troll) on drums, and the most recent addition, Jimmy Lucifer on bass.
“We have a superb lineup now” explains Shax, “musicians who are experienced, skilled and hungry – perfect for Endezzma in other words. I don’t want to give anything away about the new album, and we will be announcing more details soon, but fans can expect a high level of aggression and musicianship.”
Norwegian black metallers Endezzma have announced a short string of headlining dates in Germany and Netherlands this June:

Formed back in 1992 by Morten Shax under the original name of Dim Nagel, Shax changed the name to Endezzma in 2007 after recruiting Trondr Nefas and transforming the band into what it is today.
Endezzma’s first release, the “Alone” MCD, appeared five years ago, and the 2012 release of the full-length album “Erotik Nekrosis” on Agonia Records was delayed by a series of setbacks, culminating in the tragic and untimely death of Nefas earlier this year. The line-up on the album includes Morten Shax on vocals, Trondr Nefas (Urgehal, Beastcraft, Vulture Lord) and Thomas Myrvold (Vulture Lord) on guitars, Sregroth (Urgehal, Åsmegin) on bass, Jarle Uruz Byberg (Urgehal, ex-Shining) on drums, and L.F.Frøislie (Wobbler, In Lingua Mortua) on synths.

The following press release was also issued about the band:
"Endezzma offers up the cold atmosphere that permeated the sounds that came out of the original Norwegian Black Metal scene and combines them with eerie, seductive compositions to form the epitome of nekro requiems. The Endezzma of today can trace its roots back to 1992 with front man Morten Shax’s band Dim Nagel, which, as is often the case with bands, went through the usual vicissitudes of bankrupt labels and states of hibernation. It wasn’t until 2006 that Shax decided the time was right to start playing again and, recruiting Urgehal’s Trondr Nefas, set about transforming his old band. On the way to their first festival gig in 2007 Shax changed the name of the band to Endezzma, and the transformation was well and truly under way." More...
