SONG PREMIERE: Kval - Kuolonkuu

*News from July 18

No Clean Singing is now streaming the track "Kuolonkuu" from the upcoming self-titled album from Kval!


"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 and emptiness — and as this combination of sounds is repeated, the spell deepens, and becomes even more mystical through the emergence of a spectral melody that cascades like the mystery of northern lights, and an interlude in which rippling guitar notes play out again a background of ambient shimmering. Other melodic accents appear before the song draws to a close, but while the music may come to an end, the spell lingers."
