On this date last year, we released the second album from the Swedish Black Metal band Ov Shadows, entitled "I Djävulens Avbild". 

We got a lot of positive feedback on the release and many of you asked for a vinyl edition, so we've partnered up with Vendetta Records for the release of not only "I Djävulens Avbild" but also the debut album "The Darkness Between Stars", originally released on CD in 2018.

PRE-ORDERS: Ov Shadows - I Djävulens Avbild

Posted by Nick Skog on Saturday, July 18, 2020, In : Ov Shadows 
We are launching pre-orders for Ov Shadows' second full-length album "I Djävulens Avbild" today!

The official shirt for "I Djävulens Avbild" h...
