Nidingr Posts New Song

Norwegian metal band Nidingr just premiered another crushing new track off forthcoming album "The High Heat Licks Against Heaven." The track, titled "On Dead Body Shore," is a pulverizing dose of eviscerating metal and is streaming below.

"The High Heat Licks Against Heaven" will be released by Season of Mist on February 10th, 2017. Regarding today's newly unveiled track, Nidingr founder and guitarist Teloch comments:

"To me this song solidifies a thing that is fucking great about Nidingr - no rules. When being genre Nazis like most black metal bands are, you lose the ability to write songs that you would otherwise want to. This song proves that at least we, who have the balls to do it, do not need to constrict ourselves to one specific genre, like some no-brain capacity black metal elitist feel like they have to."

Nidingr Announces New Album

Season of Mist will release "The High Heat Licks Against Heaven," the new album from Nidingr, on February 10th, 2017. Nidingr was founded by Mayhem guitarist Teloch, and named after an old Norse insult meaning "scoundrel" or "villain" or a person of hatred and sin.

Regarding the new album, Teloch comments: "For Nidingr, making an album is a very personal and honest thing that takes a toll on everyone involved. We must be true to an idea and execute it. We do not fuck around.

"As usual Nidingr experiments with new elements on this album too. The goal was to simplify things without losing quality and still keep the elements that Nidingr is known for, which is a challenge by itself.

"'The High Heat Licks Against Heaven' is more raw and in your face, emphasizing the blistering speed and heaviness, which makes it even more extreme. The 7 string guitar is still a big part of the Nidingr sound, as it has been since the first full album in 2005. As always this is the best Nidingr album to date." More...

Nidingr's Teloch Composes Music For Play

Teloch from Nidingr has composed music for the play “Mother Courage” by Bertolt Brecht, which will be performed at Det Norske Teater (The Norwegian Theatre) in Oslo from February 13th until March 26th. Indie Recordings comments:

"Teloch has solid roots in the Norwegian black metal scene and is known from bands like Nidingr, Mayhem and God Seed, he is also the composer of the latest Mayhem album. Teloch on his behalf has teamed up with Stian 'Sir' Kårstad on guitar (God Seed, Djerv), Øyvind Myrvoll on drums (Nidingr) and Peter Michael Kolstad Vegem on bass and vocals (Blood Tsunami, Mongo Ninja).

"Bertolt Brecht wrote 'Mother Courage' during WW2 and his exile in Sweden. The play is set in the Thirty Years War (1618-48) where we find Mother Courage who is making a profit on the war, but ends up paying the cost of losing her children.

"This tells us both how meaningless war is, and of the cold mechanisms of capitalism. Mother Courage resembles the capitalistic machine. Brecht illustrates the cold, disengaged, emotionless, immoral aspects of the machine in the worst possible light. Mother Courage needs continuance of war to feed herself and finds herself unemployed without it, and yet it takes the very thing she strive to keep alive from her; her family. More...

Nidingr Streaming "Vim Patior" Track

Today Norwegian black metal conjurers Nidingr unveil the second single, “Vim Patior,” from the imminent new full-length, "Greatest Of Deceivers." Check out the song in the player below.

Notes guitarist Teloch of the new tune: “‘Vim Patior’ contains all the elements you all love about Nidingr: blastbeats, shredding guitars, sweet ass bass lines, guttural vocals, catchy riffing without turning your ears to cheese… But at the same time we introduce some of the new elements we are doing all over the new album: riffs that will make you puke blood and cry.”

The "Greatest Of Deceivers" album is scheduled to detonate in North America on November 20th, 2012. The recent Indie Recordings signees feature within their illustrious ranks past and present members of Mayhem, Gorgoroth, DHG (Dødheimsgard), 1349, and God Seed.

The album was recorded at Crystal Canyon Studios in Oslo — home to a host of prominent Norwegian acts including cult experimentalists Ulver — produced by Teloch, mixed by Anders Møller (Kitchie Kitchie Ki Me O, Euroboys, 120 Days, Turbonegro, etc.) and mastered by Jaime Gomez Arellano at Orgone Studios.

Nidingr Streaming New Song

Today Decibel Magazine hosts the premiere of Nidingr’s “Greatest Of Deceivers,” the title track from the band’s upcoming new long player, slated to drop in North America on November 20th. Check out the song at this location.

The recent Indie Recordings signees feature within their illustrious ranks past and present members of Mayhem, Gorgoroth, DHG (Dødheimsgard), 1349 and God Seed, among others. Comments guitarist Teloch of the offering, "With Greatest Of Deceivers, we wanted to try a new approach on things. We are actually working together on every song thus making the material much stronger. What we also did was slow everything down a little bit. Now it’s aggressive and at the same time very listenable. We even had this ‘grazy’ idea to not use any triggers, and have everything recorded and mastered through old analog gear. This album is the most alive, organic and raw album we’ve ever made."

"G.O.D." was recorded at Crystal Canyon Studios in Oslo, -- home to a host of prominent Norwegian acts including cult experimentalists Ulver -- produced by guitarist Teloch, mixed by Anders Møller (Kitchie Kitchie Ki Me O, Euroboys, 120 Days, Turbonegro, etc.) and mastered by Jaime Gomez Arellano at Orgone Studios.

This third full-length continues the theme from "Sorrow Infinite And Darkness," based on Enochian texts. As on the previous album, ten Enochian Æthyrs are evoked through the course of the album. For pre-orders, point your browser right here. More...

Pit Stories: Poster Pranks And An Awkward Ending

We've been talking to bands and fans everywhere to get their favorite mosh pit stories from metal shows. This week Teloch of Nidingr, and now also of Mayhem, sent in a pit story along with some photo evidence:

Ok, this was back when I was doing guitars in 1349. We played a festival here in Europe; I don't remember what festival it was, but I'm guessing this was in 2007. Celtic Frost played the same festival, and we were just back from doing a tour with them in North America, so we got to know them pretty well. As soon as CF started their gig at this festival I was starting to get drunk, hence I was having a good time and wanted to raise some hell.

Together with Mustis from Dimmu Borgir, I went to the production office and got some tools to work with. I ended up with a poster with a message to Franco their drummer, as I also did a couple of times when we did the tour with them. I think one of the posters read: "Franco, I have AIDS," which I was waving around in the pit, hiding my face so that none of the guys in CF could see who the idiot with the poster was.

At this time I took it a step further; since I was playing at the festival I had a backstage pass. So I went up onstage, started to mosh around the Celtic guys with the poster taped around my body. For the finale, I stagedived head first with my hands to my side, headbutting at least two other heads before I landed, fainted, woke up with no shoes, and had to take the van back with Celtic Frost to our hotel after the gig. Tom G. did not seem very happy with my stunt, but I for one, had a good time.

Photo evidence after the jump: More...
