Velnias Announces "Sovereign Nocturnal" Deluxe Reissue

Eisenwald today sets April 21st as the international release date (May 6th in North America) for a deluxe reissue of Velnias' celebrated "Sovereign Nocturnal" on both gatefold LP and CD formats. The following press release was also 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."

The track listing is as follows:

1. Into Arms of Oak
2. Risen of the Moor
3. Sovereign Nocturnal
