Crom Dubh Streams Full New Album

"Heimweh," the monstrous and all-encompassing debut LP from London-based epic/melodic black metal horde Crom Dubh is now streaming in its entirety below, courtesy of No Clean Singing, as the album is now out through Germany's cult label Ván Records.

"Heimweh" (meaning homesickness), continues the narrative of the band's 2010 EP, "Deifr," in which the gathering and dissolution of a great river operated as a metaphor for the rise and fall of nations and civilizations. "Heimweh" follows a similar narrative, albeit with a focus on the life of the lone individual within this tumult, following a traditional cradle-to-grave progression throughout the course of the album that runs parallel to Hesiod's five ages of man.

Crom Dubh Releases "Heimweh" Album

Germany's Ván Records is proud to have added London-based epic black metal sect Crom Dubh to its ever-expanding roster, as the band's debut full-length album "Heimweh" is released onto the masses. The label comments:

"Merging melodic yet merciless black metal with folk and post-rock influences, Crom Dubh's debut full-length, 'Heimweh' (meaning homesickness), continues the narrative of the band's 2010 EP, 'Deifr,' in which the gathering and dissolution of a great river operated as a metaphor for the rise and fall of nations and civilizations. 'Heimweh' follows a similar narrative, albeit with a focus on the life of the lone individual within this tumult, following a traditional cradle-to-grave progression throughout the course of the album that runs parallel to Hesiod's five ages of man. The album handles themes of loss, ruthlessness, nostalgia, exile, and death, thinking on the journey ahead and the way home.

"Crom Dubh was formed in 2003 by M. Beonetleah (Craven Idol), S. O'Fairdehaigh (Disfago), and Xavi (El Punto Devil). A rehearsal demo was recorded in 2003, and the 'Damnation Upon Us' demo was recorded in 2004. Ro (Grave Miasma, Cruciamentum, Destroyer 666) joined to record the 'Fallen Sons' demo in 2005. Xavi and Ro left to pursue other projects, and A. Haege joined on drums. Crom Dubh recorded and released the 2010 EP, 'Deifr' (Ground Zero), as a three-piece, before being joined by S. Vrath (Scythian, Craven Idol) and A. Von M (Scythian). A. Von M played live with the band on several occasions before leaving the band on good terms.

"Recorded by J. C. Volgard (Scythian, Craven Idol) in the Summer and Autumn of 2013, Crom Dubh's first full-length opus 'Heimweh' presents forty-five minutes of majestic yet menacing northern black metal with an incredible storyline to overthrow fans of Dissection, early Summoning, Taake, Drudkh, Tsjuder, Carpathian Forest and the like."
