Koldbrann band


Dark Essence Records have welcomed Norwegian Black Metal veterans KOLDBRANN to their roster, and are ready to release the band’s fourth full-length album in the spring of 2024. Before then, however, fans will get a taste of some new material from the band, in the shape of a two-track, limited edition, 7″ vinyl single.

Koldbrann - Den 6. Massedød (Manna fra en annen himmel) 7 inch vinyl
Koldbrann – Den 6. Massedød (Manna fra en annen himmel)

Known for their uncompromising take on Black Metal, and with a fearsome “backs to the world” attitude, KOLDBRANN have been at the forefront of the Norwegian Black Metal underground scene since the band was first formed in 2001.

Led by Mannevond’s characteristic pitch black raw vocals and Kvass’ clever Norwegian lyrics KOLDBRANN have, from day one, delivered their obscure and unique riffs, unsullied by any trends. The band’s studio output matches perfectly with their notoriety on stage.

Commenting on their upcoming collaborations with Dark Essence Records, the band had this to say:

KOLDBRANN are elated to announce that we have entered into a pact with the esteemed Dark Essence Records, one of Norway’s premier extreme metal labels. After twenty years abroad, it was about time we brought our music home!

Our fourth full-length album is mastered, and all the sordid details will be revealed in due course, but, while we wait, we are elated to be able to serve you up a proper taste of what is to come on the 1st December, when our single will hit the streets.

The two tracks on the single were both recorded during the same studio sessions as the upcoming album, and are accompanied by some disturbing artwork by the talented Salowe Vision.
