Den Saakaldte Streaming "Endelost Ode"

Norway's black metal heroes in Den Saakaldte return with a refined sound and a second brand new song entitled "Endelost Ode."

The track comes from band's upcoming "Kapittel II: Faen i Helvete" album, set to be released on May 27th in Europe and June 10th in North America via Agonia Records. "Endelost Ode" is available for streaming below, courtesy of Eternal Terror.

Den Saakaldte steps out of the shadows after five long years of strengthening its dark musical identity and defining a more grim musical approach. Built upon intense and heavy emotions and featuring members of Gorgoroth, 1349, Koldbrann and Nidingr, "Kapittel II: Faen i Helvete" is the band's most complete work to date. The album combines doom and black metal elements with clean vocals, spoken parts and obscure atmosphere.

The successor to "All Hail Pessimism" (2009) was recorded in Strand Studio in February 2014. The album will be available as a 3 panel digipack CD, digitally and on vinyl (in three versions: black, blue and red). Pre-orders are available at this location. The track listing is as follows:

1. Din Siste dag (still available for streaming right here)
2. Forbanna Idioter
3. Du Selvproklamerte Misjonær
4. Endeløst Øde

Den Saakaldte Signs With Agonia Records

Norwegian act Den Saakaldte recently announced its split with Pulverised Records. The band has now revealed it has moved to Agonia Records by issuing the following statement:

"Many dramatic changes occured during the last one year in Den Saakaldte’s reality. When Niklas decided no longer to continue with the band, many things passed from our minds…even just dropping the whole damn thing off.

"After the band discussing and coming to the conclusion that all the members wanted Den Saakaldte to continue being active as a way of artistic expression but also as in a lifestyle attitude for us, we decided that certain things had to be put down and start all over again.

"Agonia Records that has been following our ways and sharing our ideas on how things should be, gave us the opportunity to built the foundations for Kapittel II:Faen I Helvete on solid ground. Filip showed to us with quite devotion, the how much he wanted the band in Agonia Records’ roster.

"We are looking forward to start with the recordings and we are even more excited to hear soundscapes, having now Mr Hægeland as frontman. The future looks dark ...and quite much pissed off."

Additional details on the upcoming album "Kapittel II:Faen I Helvete" will be announced as they are made available.

Niklas Kvarforth Comments On Quitting Bands

It was previously announced that vocalist Niklas Kvarforth has parted ways with the band Bethlhehem. Niklas has now checked in with the following announcement about leaving all other projects, including his post with Den Saakaldte, in order to focus on the band Shining:

"A lot of things have been happening recently with Shining, and the rapid growth of the band over the last year, and the commitment that Shining now requires of me has meant that it has become impractical for me to continue working as vocalist with other bands.

"This includes my work with Bethlehem who themselves realized that the band could not continue with myself on vocals. Bethlehem is still my all-time favorite band and I wish them all the best for the future. I will also be quitting as front man for Den Saakaldte.

"From now on, therefore, I will only be making occasional guest vocal appearances on albums by other bands, and my priority will be Shining. My work with Maniac's band Skitliv will not be affected, however, as the vocals and the bulk of the creative work is in his hands.

"As always, myself and the band very much appreciate all the support the fans are giving Shining and their patience in waiting for the release of VII, and there will be some very good news regarding this very shortly"

Norwegian black metallers Den Saakaldte have checked in with the following update about parting ways with their drummer Anders Kobro:

"We are in the position to announce that due to the distance between us, we came to a conclusion that we can't continue working with Kobro behind the drum kit.
