Alda formed in Tacoma, Washington state in 2007, and are one of the veterans of what has become known as "Cascadian Black Metal", a loose collective of nature-oriented Black Metal bands based in the Cascadia region of the Pacific Northwest, including the likes of United States Wolves in the Throne Room, United States Agalloch, Canada Skagos, United States Addaura and United States Fauna.

"A Distant Fire" will mark the band's first release of any kind in over six years, and features the following tracklist:

  1. First Light
  2. Stonebreaker
  3. Drawn Astray
  4. Forlorn Peaks
  5. Loo-Wit
  6. A Distant Fire


The label had this to say regarding the new release:

Throughout their existence, Alda have maintained a stable lineup of the same four members, being Jace and Stephanie Bruton, Tim Brown, and Michael Korchonnoff. This stability has allowed the band to manage a singular focus in maintaining their established sound, while simultaneously developing and augmenting their music with each passing release.

On "A Distant Fire", Alda demonstrates a keen sense for engaging songwriting and a use of melody that is sure to enthral listeners familiar with their work as well as individuals who are new to their sound. Thematically, the album tells a story about facing a dire and uncertain future, of nights illuminated by distant blazes and days obscured by ash and smoke.

The songs fuse elements of the aforementioned genres with an ease that allows these songs to develop organically and presents listeners with an enticing sonic experience. The immersive qualities of the album are emphasized by the band's epic compositions, both in length and musical development throughout the songs.

[...]

Overall, A Distant Fire represents a noticeable growth and transformation in Alda's songwriting and musical performance, while staying true to the spirit and intentions that have informed their music during their fourteen years as a band.


The artwork for the new album was designed by artist Craig Strother of Second Nature Artwork:
