VANANIDR - Debut Full-Length Out In April, Streaming In Full

Swedish old-school black metallers Vananidr announced that they will release their highly anticipated self-titled debut album on 4th April via Purity Through Fire. Originally self-released digitally, Vananidr might be Vananidr's first public recording, but the band's history stretches back many years - which is immediately evident once the listener is presented with such black metal of an ancient vintage.
Vananidr's history begins in the mid '90s when Titan (now in IXXI) forms the band Hydra. In 1999, he is accompanied by Anders Eriksson AKA Flame (guitar), Erebus (vocals), and Thunder (drums, now also in IXXI). Over the next five years, they record several demos and an album titled Phaedra. When recordings for the second album are begun, Erebus quits the band and the following year Titan also quits. In 2010, Anders picks up the pieces of the unfinished recordings and records the vocals himself, and the album is finally finished under a new band name: Synodus Horrenda. Progress is slow, but in 2017, Anders completes a new album with Thunder on drums and later changes the band name once again to the more suiting Vananidr.
With Anders now the only remaining member from the Hydra years since Thunder disappeared along the way, at last is Vananidr's self-titled album prepared to breathe cold, cryptic life into classicist, '90s-style black metal. Like many records under the Purity Through Fire banner, the past is truly alive with Vananidr's Vananidr! In the meantime, hear Vananidr in its entirety in the player below. Link
