Dutch black metallers VERWOED have completed works on their anticipated new album, “De Val”.
Two years after the release of the critically acclaimed debut three-song EP “Bodemloos”, VERWOED comes back with another gem of Dutch black metal. With “De Val” the band keeps expanding its sound in multiple directions while keeping anchored to its hallucinatory very own roots.
The album’s title track is now streaming exclusively via legendary American magazine DECIBEL at THIS LOCATION.
VERWOED‘s “De Val” was recorded, mixed and mastered by John Bart van der Wal and will be released via Argento Records in September 2018. The cover artwork was designed by Joost Verwoort.
The band, fronted by singer and multi-instrumentalist Erik Bleijenberg, will return to renowned Roadburn Festival in the Netherlands on Saturday, April 21.
“Hailing from Utrecht, VERWOED is one of the most exciting bands to spearhead the New Wave of Dutch Black Metal, a new generation of musicians on the rise, and even developing a cult of their own. The band’s much acclaimed debut album, Bodemloos, delves deep into paranoia and schizophrenia – Verwoed’s malicious, darkened feel offers a visceral ascension into full-blown psychosis. It serves as a hallucinogenic exploration through harrowing black metal, and dense, melodic ambience, which is both terrifying and soothing – catharsis through ugliness and utter beauty”.
