Finnish black metal band Wyrd has signed with American label Moribund Records and are currently recording their upcoming album, "Death of the Sun," which will be released by the label later this year.
Finnish pagan black metal band WYRD has signed a record deal with NAGA roductions for their upcoming album, "Kalivägi." WYRD's frontman Tomi Kalliola (aka Narqath; also in AZAGHAL) said that "Kalivägi" will be in the same vein as older WYRD albums.
You can listen to the song "Talviyo" from the upcoming album on WYRD's official MySpace page.
"Kalivägi" is set for a February 2009 release through Naga Productions.
Finnish Black metallers Azaghal will enter the studio to record their 6th album, their follow up to "Codex Antitheus".
Nargath comments: "The studio is booked, we will start recording in 2 weeks. We are using the same studio as last time, but we are going for a bit dirtier and rawer sounds/production this time. The working title for the album is "Luciferin Valo" ("The Light of Lucifer") but that might still change.
The album will feature 9-11 tracks, depending on how they turn out and which combination makes the best whole.
Song titles include "Verta ja Tuhkaa" ("Blood and Ashes"), "Teen Paholaisen Työtä" ("I do the Devils work"), "Kuolonkäärme" ("The Death Serpent"), "Tuhoaja" ("Destroyer") and "Ilmestyskirjan Ratsastajat" ("Riders of the Apocalypse") amongst others.
The material is more midtempo based than on the last album and hmm dare I say, catchier, than on Codex."
In other news, Nargath's project Wyrd inked a deal with Avantgarde Music.
