Australian black metal band Norse is gearing up to release new album "The Divine Light Of A New Sun" via Transcending Obscurity Records on May 25th. Check out advance track "Drowned By Hope" below, and Transcending Obscurity also comments:
"Here they surpass everything they've done in the past. 'Pest' was a unique slice of harsh, dissonant black metal but their new album is a stunning progression while retaining the band's trademark, futuristic yet exceptionally bleak sound. 'The Divine Light Of A New Sun' is a tour de force of weirdly rhythmic and catchy black metal while remaining true to its original aura. Virtually peerless, Norse. eate music that is haunting, incisive and lethal."
