Moribund Records sets October 30th as the international release date for Cold Northern Vengeance’s long-awaited second album, Maelstrom. Pagan/Viking metal berserkers, Cold Northern Vengeance create kaleidoscopic landscapes of majesty and melancholy, storm and shelter. The vision of chieftain Heathen, Maelstrom picks up where 2008’s cult classic Domination and Servitude left off: rolling, roiling layers of mystifying, hypnotizing tones, all harnessed in a revelatory and Odinistic manner. But here, Cold Northern Vengeance digs deeper into their pagan roots, plumbing the dark, alluring depths for a resonance rarely found in American metal. Like a communique sent from another, far-distant time, Maelstrom verily becomes its title and transports the listener away from reality and into a dream-like Valhalla, both splendorous and sinister. Northern sonic craftsmanship that nods to what Viking metal art should be – submit to Cold Northern Vengeance’s Maelstrom! Cover and tracklistg are as follows:
1. Pierced by the Tree
2. Seeker of Secrets
3. Eye of the Storm
4. Waxing and Waning
5. The Darkness of Once Was
“After 13 years of forging the musick of Cold Northern Vengeance, I am proud to have the legendary and prolific Moribund Records as the label to bring you what is, without a shadow of a doubt, my strongest material in terms of songwriting, lyrics, and vision!” states Heathen. “It is a very storm-like album with a nod to many of my influences while still coming off as unique, idiosyncratic, and dare I say, original. For best results, listen to this on a dark and stormy night, preferably by the raging seas. It has hidden depths and trance-inducing sounds full of pagan revelation. This is my ode to New England and all its witching wonders. Hail to Moribund, and hail to the hypnotic ocean of time and our Hidden Gods waiting to be found!”
