Härnösand, Sweden’s blackened death metal act Svartkonst is gearing up for the release of its highly anticipated new album May the Night Fall, which will be coming out on September 29th via Trust No One Recordings. While the first single Endless Dark already gave fans ans newcomers alike an intense insight into the upcoming album, Svartkonst follows up now with the brand new track Filth Worship.
“The second potent spell of all things Svartkonst. The blood in these veins has no limit to what it will distill. And the fruit of this is a disgusting slew of a track, maybe a more unpredicted and erratic one than previous conjurations,” mastermind Rickard Törnqvist states.
He continues:”Filth Worship is an unholy abomination that twists and turns as the track goes on. I wanted this track to have schizophrenia, to distort between genres and styles, in a filthy disharmony. Worship the filth!”
Since the band’s debut album Devil’s Blood in 2018, which hit like a minor bomb in extreme metal circles and was nominated by Aftonbladet (Sweden’s biggest newspaper) to be the year’s second best album, the hype around Svartkonst keeps on growing. With the vision of blending the heaviness and filth of Swedish death metal with the coldness and desperation of black metal, Svartkonst succeeds in its own way to deliver heavy riffs, sharp melodies and intense aggression that leaves no one untouched. Following the latest album Black Waves (2020), which has been nominated for the Swedish Indie Grammy Manifestgalan, May the Night Fall is about to mark the next intense chapter of Svartkonst and is an album not to be missed in 2023!
