Halshug Posts "Vold"

With Copenhagen-based Halshug's new "Sort Sind" full-length album now two weeks from release through Southern Lord, a gritty new track from the album has come online.

Halshug's second studio full-length, "Sort Sind," delivers ten ripping new tracks, which are each reflections on fragments of the human experience expressed in the form of hardcore punk, the album's title translating to "black mind."

The overall theme for Sort Sind is based on the members' feelings and experiences inspired by growing up in the 1990s and 2000s in neglected parts of Denmark.

Halshug Enacts "Total Destruktion"

The nightmare continues with news of "Blodets Bånd," the caustic debut LP from Copenhagen raw punks Halshug, which will be unchained by Southern Lord on February 24th.

As the street date closes in, today, Cvlt Nation unloads the first single from the riotous album, with the sixth track, "Total Destruktion." Give it a listen below. Southern Lord also comments:

"Halshug (which translates to 'decapitate') is fast becoming known within Europe's hallowed DIY routes and enclaves for their impeccably executed hardcore crust, which pays furious tribute to their rich K-town heritage and crucially adds an abrasive modern stomp. With searing distortion, radical d-beat pace and overblown, reverb-soaked vocals, Halshug leaves no room for subtlety or second-guessing across the eight tracks of their first full-length effort, 'Blodets Bånd.' Watch as 'Blodets Bånd" engulfs the world in flames."

The new album's track listing is as follows:

1. Gudsforladt
2. Afmagt
3. Inferno
4. Knæl
5. Blodets Bånd
6. Total Destruktion
7. Yderste Rand
8. Kvælende Frygt More...

Halshug Signs To Southern Lord

Southern Lord has sanctioned the label's latest signing in the form of Danish raw punk/hardcore trio, Halshug. The label comments:

"Formed in Copenhagen only two years ago, the riotous young act, Halshug, unloads some of the most traditionally-styled but urgently unloaded traditional crust punk/d-beat hardcore to be found.

"The enraged sentiment of archetypal leaders of the genre, Doom, Anti Cimex, and no doubt, Discharge, and direct influence drawn from Infernöh, Hoax and Death Token, is unapologetic in its presence in the band's delivery, which, fueled by society's modern-day ills, finds Halshug already in line with Nuclear Death Terror, Wolfbrigade, Skitsystem and the best of the movement's current top acts.

"Through only an initial demo followed by their 2013-released Dödskontrol 7", Halshug has amassed a punishing name early in the powerful trio's lifespan through regional and even more heavily-concentrated European touring, and continues to expand on their live executions in 2014 with more widespread gigs than ever already ongoing and in the works.

"Their newest venture, a two-week rip through Germany, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Belgium and Holland, begins tomorrow, April 16th in Berlin. Halshug will also tour abroad through Europe and even invade North America later in 2014, following the release of their debut LP, soon to be recorded for Southern Lord." More...
