PRE-ORDERS: Dødsferd - Wrath

Posted by Hypnotic Dirge Records on Thursday, March 14, 2024 Under: Dødsferd
We are now taking pre-orders for the latest musical onslaught from Greek legions Dødsferd, their twelfth full-length entitled "Wrath"

"Wrath" is presented as a DLP Gatefold, a massive new effort from one of Greece's longest running black metal bands. The vinyl release is limited to 300 copies, in 3 separate variants - a Lava variant, a Womb of God variant and a classic black variant. The DLP edition also comes with a vinyl exclusive track on Side D - the nearly 14 minute mammoth "Back to My Homeland… A Beast in Calm".

"Wrath" is also available in a CD edition, presented in a 6 panel digipack with an 8 page booklet. The CD edition contains the six main album tracks and is limited to an edition of 500 copies.

Album notes:
Dødsferd has established its name over the years as a remarkably persistent black metal institution, one which has been consistent in delivering quality outputs album after album, not afraid in taking artistic detours only to come back with full force, and always remaining true to itself. Over the course of two decades, it released no less than 11 full length albums, alongside an impressive number of other EPs, splits, and demos. While it has nothing to prove to no one, Dødsferd burns today with the same fury and passion as ever.

Following the acclaimed “Diseased Remnants of a Dying World” album in 2018, Dødsferd released an atmospheric two-piece album of raw black metal entitled "Suicide and the rest of your kind will follow Part II", followed by an acoustic collaboration with Sarvok. Circling back to its blackest sources, the 12th and newest album "Wrath" promises to be a no holds barred, uncompromising onslaught of raw black metal. Aptly titled after its founder, the album’s eponymous quality can be recognized in its raw purity, and its ability to weave elements which have been used over the past 20 years. Erupting with a renewed maturity and confidence, “Wrath” is at the crossroad of where Dødsferd came from and where it is going; it will appeal to those who have been following Dødsferd over the years, as well as those new to it.  

Dødsferd is Wrath & Wrath is Dødsferd! Till the end of this corrupted and diseased world!

Thematically, “Wrath” carries in its wake a vigorous indictment of the social and economic consequences of capitalism, political corruption, ecocide, and the largest argument against our civility – warfare.

In conspiracy with Dødsferd's very own Fucking Your Creation Records, the new album "Wrath" will be officially released on both CD and LP formats in May 2024. Following that, you can also expect a limited Tape and Digi CD Box Set by the end of the year exclusively through FYC Records.
