netra releases new track 'concrete ocean' from the upcoming Sørbyen album

The song 'concrete ocean' from the upcoming netra album to be entitled 'Sørbyen' has now been made available for streaming and free download. This is the second track to made available from the upcoming album Sørbyen following the release of the track 'wish she could vanish' a few weeks ago. This track however stands in contrast to 'wish she could vanish' in that it explores the more black metal side of netra, having a similar sound to Burzum's Filosofem album in some parts in terms of the guitar sound and vocals while still retaining the trip-hop influences persent in many netra tracks. The upcoming 'Sørbyen' album from netra will see a release on the canadian label 'Hypnotic Dirge Records' in the summer of 2012.   

For those curious about the past work of netra, the debut album 'Mélancolie Urbaine', released in late 2010 is now available for streaming and free download in its entirety at this location:

At first, there was nothing but these memories of a cold and grey urbanism. It is meanwhile walking down the streets of Kemper, France, that netra was first thought of, back in 2003. Nothing else could convey these horrible feelings, this underlying depression and boredom of city life. Seven years and two demos later, netra raises the interest of Nick Skog, owner of the canadian label Hypnotic Dirge Records, thanks to whom the first album "Mélancolie Urbaine" is finally brought under the spotlight in December 2010, to high acclaim from listeners and the press around the world, with some writers expressing that it was one of the best releases of 2010. With influences ranging from the moodiest jazz music to black metal and trip-hop, netra has always been about challenging the listener's open-mindedness. Two years and a moving to Norway later, netra finally comes back with a second full-length entitled "Sørbyen" to be released this summer.
