Vardan Releasing 21st Album

His album "Between the Fog and Shadows" isn't even due out until August 21st, but somehow Vardan has already recorded another album now slated for release this year. The solo black metal project's 21st album "From The Pale Moonlight" is now set to drop on September 18th via Moribund Records. The label comments:

"'From the Pale Moonlight' is perhaps Vardan's most emotive recording to date. Exhibiting Vardan's characteristically grim 'n' forsaken brand of Burzumic black metal, 'From the Pale Moonlight' shows many somber shades of melody, miserable and mesmerizing to the bitter end, with bouts of well-timed (and very emotive) speed dragging the melancholy to hysteric, horrific ends. From the Pale Moonlight, Vardan consumes all hope..." More...

Chronologically the 23rd album in the one-man band's vast discography, Vardan's latest "The Night, The Loneliness" sees the selfsame mainman master the art of melancholy. Down-tempo and downtrodden, forlorn and fatalistic, "The Night, The Loneliness" pulses its way into the soul, twisting and turning the knife with bittersweetness and even a bit of beauty. More...

Vardan Releasing New Album

The busiest man in black metal, Vardan will delivers his 22nd album to date, "Verses From Ancient Times," on January 20th via Moribund Records. The label comments:

"Aptly titled, 'Verses From Ancient Times' is pure classic black metal: grimly pulsing, entrancingly melodic, raw as the dungeon and ghostly as the night. 2014 was a busy year for Vardan, with three critically acclaimed full-lengths on Moribund, all of which mastered the depressive suicidal black metal sound.

"Here, with 'Verses From Ancient Times,' Vardan delivers four epics of atmospheric majesty - strictly and totally within the realm of traditional BM, but with a special darkness and grit that's entirely his own. Open the crypt and memorize 'Verses From Ancient Times!'"

The track listing is as follows:

1. I
2. II
3. III
4. IV More...

Vardan Announces "Enjoy Of Deep Sadness" Release

Moribund Records today announces August 5th as the release date for Vardan's "Enjoy of Deep Sadness."

Hot on the heels of "The Woods is My Coffin," released by Moribund earlier this year, Vardan returns with his most soul-draining release yet, "Enjoy of Deep Sadness." Chronologically the 12th album in the restless solo artist's growing catalog, "Enjoy of Deep Sadness" is everything its title promises: sorrowful, time-stretched epics of hauntingly melodic melancholy. But this time, Vardan elongates his depressive suicidal black metal into three double-digit funeral dirges that total 36 minutes of cold, grim majesty. The track listing is as follows:

1. A Broken Existence (11:21)
2. Enjoy Of Deep Sadness (11:34)
3. An Abstract Voice (12:23)

You can also hear the song "Goatcraft" from the previously released "The Woods Is My Coffin" album below. More...
