SAGENLAND - Debut Full-Length Out In January, First Track Available For Streaming

Twente (Netherlands) based black metal project Sagenland announces that they will release the debut album entitled Oale Groond on 15th January via Heidens Hart Records. Sagenland returns fifteen years after the first three track EP Bladval, has now awakened from dormancy and finally deliver their debut full-length, Oale groond.

Driving forces behind the project are A. (Cultus, Heimdalls Wacht, Uuntar) and F. (Asgrauw, Meslamtaea), who share an obsession for traditional Scandinavian black metal such as the legendary Ulver trilogy, old Dodheimsgard, and Arckanum. Sagenland plays folk-injected black metal with a leading role for melodic bass parts, epic choirs, and acoustic guitars.

The album follows the tradition of riff-based, well-written, actual songs, while capturing nostalgia, romanticism, and aggression in a way that is rare nowadays. This is sincere and honest traditional and folkish-themed grim black metal. Lyrics are mostly in the local dialect and describe sagas and local poetry from the countryside between Regge and Dinkel, where Sagenland is rooted. Listen to the first revealed track "t Leste gedicht (Twentse earde)" in the player below. Link
