Velnias Streaming "Sovereign Nocturnal" Re-Issue

Today, the entirety of Velnias' celebrated "Sovereign Nocturnal" is being streamed below, courtesy of Zero Tolerance magazine.

Released last week in Europe by Eisenwald (and May 6th in North America), this deluxe reissue of "Sovereign Nocturnal" is available on both gatefold LP and CD formats. The following press release was issued about the band:

"Hailing from Colorado, Velnias came into being in late 2006 and established themselves by force of steady and captivating live performances throughout the years, be it single concerts and rituals or tours with the likes of Agalloch, Mournful Congregation, or the recent EU appearances with Kampfar.

"Originally issued in 2008 and published under several different pressings since then, this reworked reissue of the band's Sovereign Nocturnal debut comes with deluxe packaging and new stunning artwork. With three songs and a total running time of over 40 minutes, Sovereign Nocturnal is widely described as a harmonic combination of sorrowful black metal with a sprawling doom atmosphere, combined with elements of folk & moody acoustic passages.

"Their musical foundation, with intertwined tracks of long, brooding atmospheric monuments and feral-yet-fragile riffs with healthy traces of folk, manages to invoke the sense of a moonlit forest and the spirits within, nature's majesty and humanities irrevocable demise." More...

Hate Announces Tour Dates With Kampfar

Polish extreme metal leviathans Hate will be taking part in the Spreading the Plague MMXIV Tour that will hit Europe in March/April 2014.

The band will team up with Norway's pagan black metal horde Kampfar to bring supreme blasphemy to 16 cites. On the tour that will start on the 28th of March in Munich/Germany, you will also see U.S. avant-garde black metallers Velnias and Norwegian melodic black metal act Iskald.

Hate's front man Atf Sinner comments: "We are very much looking forward to touring Europe again and I think the combined line-up for these shows is simply killer! As we are working on new tracks right now, you may expect some brand-nu-blaspehemy played on the upcoming shows for the first time! We've been waiting for a regular tour since the tragedy happened and I believe the time has come to hit the road again at full force. We will come back rejuvenated and hungrier than ever before, so be prepared for truly riotous shows!” More...
