Today, it is with great pleasure that NORDVIS announces the signing of Swedish blackened metal mystics SKOGEN. To date, SKOGEN have released three increasingly acclaimed albums – 2009’s Vittra, 2011’s Svitjod, and last year’s Eld – which poignantly integrated robust, rough-hewn blackened metal with moonlit ‘n’ melancholic folk music, weaving a tapestry of triumph and tragedy, loss and remembrance. As such, this new collaboration between SKOGEN and NORDVIS is a natural one, as both parties share the same boundless source of inspiration, and centers less around the idea of a “record deal” and more so on the noble foundation of brotherhood. The first fruit of this two-album partnership shall unveil itself in late late 2013/early 2014.
A statement from SKOGEN reads: “To sign with NORDVIS feels like the final piece of the puzzle that is SKOGEN. A very suitable label, based in Sweden – we’re looking forward to our collaboration!”
