From Transmissions from the Dark:
"A new chapter of the band is about to unfold, under the auspices of Hypnotic Dirge Records and full album Kaer Morhen, with this single setting out an imperiously assertive statement of intent, icy winds and bitter snow rolling from the mountains in an avalanche of sound from the opening bars, and remains a magically relentless force through its duration.

Kaer Morhen will be released through Hypnotic Dirge Records on CD and Digital on April 19, 2024, with an LP edition in June. Pre-orders will commence in early March."

Aiming to go in a country\folk direction after years in the extreme metal world, stroszek could be described as “richly melodic, hauntingly melancholic, and at times, a crushingly sad commentary on innermost thoughts and life experiences”, or ‘long drives along deserted highways with jus...
