Talk about a style that will stick to you like water in 40 Celsius below zero. A tune made for the bleaker moments in your #metal life – or for times, when you are not afraid. Best consumed in deep winter, when the wolves howl about the icy tundra of Estonia.
Vanad Varjud‘s newest concoction Dismal Grandeur In Nocturnal Aura is, whilst not very long, still a very sturdy stew of all things wild and darkly #metal. Their very strange and cold mix of Black Metal, combined with a large offering of depressive and doomish elements will impress that gloomy atmosphere upon your soul. You might want it or not. With no track shorter than an epic 10 minutes or so, you will get your share of a much bleaker tune than was present on the preceding album. Not many bands out there are really able to project this bleak landscape the way Vanad Varjud do. And this is their main strength, should they choose to get noticed.

Vanad Varjud got into a first, more astral existence sometimes around the unholy year of the dark lord 2000. It took them until 2009 to really start and produce some material, which was crowned with a first album Apooriad in 2009. Dismal Grandeur In Nocturnal Aura, signed to Symbol of Domination (sub-label of Satanath Records), is their latest album so far, released in January 2016.
Now put on your cap, gloves and fur coat and get yourself a copy. If you think it is summer now and warm enough, think again: It is always winter somewhere and this is where this music plays.
