Norwegian Black Metal experimentalists Norway Dødheimsgard are gearing up for the release of what will be their sixth full-length album, "Black Medium Current", which is scheduled to drop on the 14th of April via industry veterans Peaceville Records. The album will be the band's first release of any kind since 2015's "A Umbra Omega". While we wait, the album's eight and longest track, "Abyss Perihelion Transit", is now available for listening:


The label commented:

Dødheimsgard return with their exceptional first single ‘Abyss Perihelion Transit’ taken from the forthcoming album “Black Medium Current”. The ten minutes plus track weaves a sombre tapestry incorporating elements of multiple sub genres in the world of Extreme Metal and thematically tackles ideas of epistemological dualism.

Regarding the single Vicotnik had the following to say: “The whole album revolves subjectively around perception, experience, psychology, objective/subjective reality vs external pressure, tropes, taboos, the laws of motion/causality which influences one’s life. The subjective perception of reality vs the objective causal effects of reality and how they are bound interact. Epistemological dualism.”

I guess mental health, or rather instead of health, let’s call it mental condition is a big topic on this record. Not as in a complaining way, or as a good or bad notion, but rather a subject’s study of his own psychology (en)during everything.

Like the ambiguity of Being. What is Being? Is it a meta-physical stratum of subjective emotionally fuelled notions or is Being just explaining a physical object that is, therefore being. Epistemologically I guess these lyrics dwell a lot on naïve realism vs representational realism. Cognitivism vs behaviourism, and then bringing it all to an artist context obviously. So, it is experiential renditioning, not solution driven.”

Accompanying the single is a video and single cover art from visionary artist Costin Chiorenau who brings the disparate and incredibly solemn existence of ‘Black Medium Current’s first single to life. Working together both the song and the video evolve over the course of the ten-minute run time to create something truly visionary both in a sonic and visual context

The complete tracklist for "Black Medium Current" will be as follows:

  1. Et smelter
  2. Tankespinnerens smerte
  3. Interstellar Nexus
  4. It Does Not Follow
  5. Voyager
  6. Halow
  7. Det tomme kalde morke
  8. Abyss Perihelion Transit
  9. Requiem Aeternum

Pre-orders are now live at the Peaceville store:
