RAGNAROK - Take Everyone By Surprise With New Vocalist Announcement

It has been several months since one of Norway's iconic black metal bands Ragnarok announced the departure of vocalist Hans Fyrste, and since then there has been much speculation as to who will replace him, with several high profile names being thrown into the mix by fans. But until now the band has kept quiet about their choice, whilst at the same time rehearsing the new line-up behind closed doors. And now that the announcement can be made, there is no doubt at all that it will surprise most fans - because the new vocalist will be drummer and Ragnarok founder Jontho himself, and his place behind the drum kit on stage will be taken by Dauden drummer Malignant.
It might seem strange that Jontho, who is one of the most well known and respected drummers on the black metal scene, and who has played in various bands such as Tsjuder, Endezzma and Shadow Dancers during his long and formidable career, should decide on a change of direction, especially with a band that he founded 20 years ago, but, as he explains, he is not entirely abandoning his drums: "When Hans Fyrste left  I sat down together with bass player DezeptiCunt and guitarist Bolverk, and we knew that finding the right person who would fit Ragnarok's ethos both in terms of performance and live appearances was not going to be easy. On top of which we had to begin work on our eighth full-length album, and we didn't want to have to rush into anything we might later come to regret, so we took the decision that I would continue to handle the drums in the studio, as well as taking on the vocals both in the studio and on stage, and that Malignant would drum for us live on stage. Although I'm known as a drummer, I'm not a stranger to performing vocals, having done backing vocals on some of Ragnarok's albums. It would be fair to say that am tired of front men who do not give their all and quit the band, so, since I am the most stable member and the de facto front man from the beginning, even though I played the drums, I will now front the band as I should have years ago. Of course, doing vocals live in front of an audience is definitely a challenge, but one that I was interested in trying after all these years behind the drum kit. Will I continue as Ragnarok's vocalist after the release of the next album? That remains to be seen, but for the time being it's something I'm looking forward to".
Jontho's first appearance on stage as vocalist with Ragnarok will take place on the 4th October at the Stadthalle in Schweinfurt, Germany, when the band is set to appear at Norwegian Hellcamp, the new festival which, as its name suggests, is devoted entirely to Norwegian black and extreme metal. Along with Ragnarok in the line-up are Taake, Slagmaur, Vulture Industries, Endezzma, Sarkom, Den Saakaldte and Aura Noir. In addition aside from working on their next album, Ragnarok are also currently in the middle of planning some South American dates later this year. Link

MYRKUR - Debut EP Out Now And Available For Streaming

Denmark based one-woman black metal act Myrkur released today her anticipated debut eponymous EP through Relapse Records and made it available for streaming. Combining the rawness of second wave black metal bands like Ulver and Darkthrone with the natural sonic beauty of Sigur Ros, Myrkur has created a wholly unique perspective on the genre. With a distinct sense of Nordic isolation Myrkur’s debut is a feminine yet definitively brutal record that has burst onto the scene like a Valkyrie into battle. The whole thing is available for streaming and purchasing on Bandcamp, alternatively you can give it a listen below by clicking on play button. Link

Welcome to the bewitching and magical pagan world of The Moon And The Nightspirit. The Hungarian duo consisting of singer/multiinstrumentalist Ágnes Tóth and lyricist/multiinstrumentalist Mihály Szabó, brought to life in 2003 is back with their fifth studio album named Holdrejtek. In truth there are not enough words in the vocabulary to express the magical entity of their music, but let me tell you that their enchanting and compulsive creations split between medieval, folk, world, pagan and celtic music are simply out of this world. Holdrejtek is absolutely their strongest and most compact release to date, it's thematically based and influenced, like each of their albums, by deep veneration for and love of nature, yet this time approached by much more philosophical and intellectual way and less romantical. Still this doesn't mean that it has lost any of its romantic charm, contrary. The Moon And The Nightspirit can captivate with an interesting sense to compose smooth, yet very rich, almost cinematic ambiances that can be compared in terms of effectiveness to those of Dead Can Dance, but the acts that are stylistically nearest are Norwegians Arcana or Austrians Die Verbannten Kinder Evas. Holdrejtek holds an ancient aura and engulfs its vibe from the ancient folklore and mysticism. It's essence is dark, yet pure, it's elegant and hypnotic in the most audacious way.
