Details Of New Album "Thill Smitts Terror" Revealed By Slagmaur

Today, Osmose Productions sets March 31st as the international release date for Norwegian avante garde black metal act Slagmaur's massively anticipated third album, "Thill Smitts Terror."

The album continues where the band left off on 2009's critically acclaimed "Von Rov Shelter," delving more and more deeply into the disturbing world that Slagmaur conjures up by combining modern and classical instruments with children’s nursery rhymes and fairy tales. It is a world where classically constructed melodies blend seamlessly with aggressive black metal to create a nightmare scenario straight from the pit of Hell. Art, as well as music, is an integral part of the whole that is Slagmaur - from the sinister masks and costumes the band wears onstage, to the disturbing images used in the artwork for the albums.

Mysterious and secretive, Slagmaur was formed in the remote reaches of northwestern Norway in 2006. The band has never revealed the band members' true identities and always appear heavily disguised, often as characters from the songs, nor have the band ever revealed the creation process of the sinister music that invades the listener's mind with layer upon layer of sound that reveals a different facet each time you hear it, depending on your current state of mind.

"Thill Smitts Terror" is thus a culmination of all that's transpired in the particular, peculiar Slagmaur world, and a continuation of where it goes next. A hint can be found below, where three tracks from the album are currently streaming. The Cover and track listing are as follows:

1. Innferd
2. The Drummer of Tedworth
3. Werewolf
4. Bestemor Sang Djevelord
5. Hekeskritt Og Djevelritt
6. Hansel Unt Gretel
7. Ja vi Elsker Dette Landet
8. Utferd
