Recorded in Norway at the Woodscave Studio. and mastered by WSL Studio in France, “Pyres” is the follow up to SVARTELDER’s “Askebundet” EP, which hit the streets last year, also on Dusktone as well.
Aside from founder and frontman Doedsadmiral SVARTELDER’s lineup comprises of Maletoth on bass and guitars, AK-47 on drums, and Kobold on keys.
There is no doubt that the band’s sound is firmly rooted in black metal, but SVARTELDER’s strength lies in the fact that not only is its lineup vastly experienced, it is also able to draw that experience from a variety of different musical backgrounds and influences. And this is something that allows the band to mix different elements together, bringing a fresher, more varied, approach to the overall sound.
