Formloff To Release "Spyhorelandet" Album In 2012

Five years after the release of the "Adjø Silo," Norway's Formloff is returning with a new dark black metal piece. Titled "Spyhorelandet," the record is set for release via Eisenwald in January 2012. The band's publicist commented on the album:

"Finding progression in regression, Formloff has crafted an album closer to the sound of the first demo, Overstyring. Darker and more atmospheric than ever before, the Formloff duo -- Bernt Karsten Sannerud and Marius Sjøli -- also recruited several session musicians to compete the recording lineup, including two bass players, a drummer and a saxophonist.

"Where most black metal revels in stories of fictional deities, benign and malignant, Spyhorelandet wallows in everyday themes. Much like the cover art (to be revealed soon), the music contained within bears forth the naked truth. When you peel back the skin, no matter how beautiful, what is left is the ugly personal histories each of us carries. Throughout Spyhorelandet, naked inhabitants of our world are quoted directly. For many of whom, defeat is their best and sometimes only asset."

Two sample tracks from the record are available to be heard below.
