Posthum Inks Deal With Indie Recordings

Indie Recordings is proud to announce the signing of Norwegian act Posthum. The label commented:

"The sound of Posthum is the sound of dark, Norwegian forests and endless snow-covered plains. It is melancholic, atmospheric and hypnotizing Norwegian Black Metal. They released their debut album 'Posthum' in 2009 receiving great reviews from the underground press, and triggering a strong demand for a swift sequel.

"The band was formed in 2004 in a small town in the east of Norway, and until 2009 Posthum kept fairly isolated from other musical communities and bands. This resulted in their music not being particularly influenced by the trends in the scene, and despite their obvious roots in Norwegian Black Metal Posthum sounds new and fresh. Their debut record ensured them some well-deserved attention that lead to a European Tour with legendary Satyricon and Shining (SE) the same year.

"In fact, Posthum’s first concert ever was supporting Satyricon and Shining in front of a completely sold-out venue with 800 fans in Antwerp, Belgium. Not a bad way to start their career. Since then Posthum has played at Under The Black Sun Festival in Germany, done several shows in Norway and a toured Europe again with Nargaroth and Chaos Invocation. Since their debut the band has earned a reputation for being a rock solid live band with emphasis on good songs rather than image extravagance."

The band also commented on its name: "The name Posthum means 'after exitus,' which especially refers to compositions and tributes to dead artists. For the band Posthum is a tribute and reminder to all life that has existed before them. It’s fascinating to know that what surrounds us are the results of the efforts of ordinary mortal explorers, of flesh and blood, and that one day we too will be history, but what we leave behind is something very alive, the music.”
