Nettlecarrier Streams New Song "The Boiling Blood"

If you feel like you need a serving of pure evil, the new track from Norwegian black metallers Nettlecarrier should fill that craving. Listen to the first single, "The Boiling Blood," from the band's new self-titled release in the player below. The album is due out on 9/25 in North America (9/21 in Norway). You can pre-order the the album exclusively via the Indie Recordings webshop here.

Nettlecarrier consists of T. Ciekals (Djevel, Ljå), Mannevond (Koldbrann, Urgehal), and Dirge Rep (Orcustus, Gehenna, Gorgoroth, Enslaved). The band originally formed in 2004 when, according to T. Ciekals, "I had been in contact with Mannevond and we were both fans of each others bands.” The two had a burning desire to create an older and more sinister sound that was unique to any other black metal band around. Following the addition of the band's former drummer Vold came the first release, a 7" called "To Strangle The Hero Of Heaven."

Despite the title's underground success, Nettlecarrier was put on hold for almost three years. “I left Ljå in 2007 to focus on Djevel and Mannevond was busy with Urgehal, but Nettlecarrier wasn’t dead, just buried for a while," stated T. Ciekals. Following the release of the Djevel album, Ciekals was finally able to focus on Nettlecarrier and in 2010, with addition of the talented drummer Dirge Rep, set out to record a new album.

The album's artwork was done by Truls Espedal (Enslaved, Theater of Tragedy, Djevel) and the full track listing is:

1. The Boiling Blood
2. Paa Vaare Paaler Deres Hoder
3. I Helvete Kristus Skal Forgaa
4. Naar Han Vaakner
5. Demoriel
6. Cup Of Lethe
7. Bundet Til Masten
