UPCOMING RELEASE: Kval - Laho

February 25, 2019
Two summers ago, Finnish Black Metal project Kval released their debut self-titled album, an album which was originally released under the moniker Khaossos in 2015. Kval has spent the past few months writing and refining the tracks for the second Kval album, entitled Laho, the first album to be written for Kval from the start.



Compared to the previous album, Laho ("Rotten" in English) has a brighter and more colorful atmosphere musically while the lyrical themes on Laho references the decay and rot of the forest floor, applied as a metaphor for the human mind. Our inability to live in the moment, the loss of innocence, and the ever-present corrosion of our optimism and descent into cynicism encompass the themes of Laho, wrapped in captivating and entrancing Atmospheric Black Metal.

As with the previous self-titled album, fitting and imaginative hand-drawn cover art was crafted by Moonroot Art.
(which will be revealed later) 

Laho will be presented as a 6 panel digipack and released on Hypnotic Dirge Records on May 23, 2019.

Pre-orders

"Gloom shrouds “Kuolonkuu” like the seeping of weeping northern skies dampens the grey eminence of mountain timbers. The chill sinks into the listener’s skin from the first moments, as deep abrading riffs begin their work over the stalking gait of a mid-paced beat.

The tormented, rasping howls through which the words are exclaimed manifest anguish ...

How is everything on your end? I hope all is well
Everything’s great. I hope you're doing great as well.

First off I need to ask the obvious: Why the name change from Khaossos to Kval, especially since you already had established yourself under the Kuolonkuu name with a handful of releases. Please explain
