Post-black metal purveyors Vattnet Viskar have released a new track from their forthcoming album, Settler, which is due out June 16 via Century Media. The new track is titled “Impact” and it storms right out of the gate with furious drumming and stampeding riffs that, while heavy, are soaked with serene melodies and radiate with a kind of intense beauty that you cannot turn away from. Let the track and Josh Graham’s (Neurosis, A Storm of Light, etc) visuals envelop you after the break.
My homies Vattnet Viskar will unleash their highly anticipated new record Settler next month and the band has premiered a new track. This new track is titled “Yearn” and it is… It’s brilliant. Vattnet Viskar never half-ass anything and their music is always superb in every fashion. Check out “Yearn” after the jump if you know what’s good for you. Continue reading →

I’m always happy when my homies in Vattnet Viskar and I love their choices all around. From the music, to the art, it’s always great. Speaking of art, the band has released the album cover for their new record Settler, which currently holds a mid-June release date. The artwork doesn’t automatically scream post-blackened doom, but it is definitely intriguing. Check out the artwork at the top of this post and let us know what you think in the comments.
I love my homies in Vattnet Viskar. The band is always compelling and entrancing, and I almost shit myself when I found out that they would be releasing a new album this year. The album has been dubbed Settler and it is due out this summer. Before the album drops, you can get stoked for the short run Vattnet will take with Early Graves! Check out those dates after the jump. Excite! Continue reading →
My postblackened homies Vattnet Viskar have been on a spree of awesomeness ever since they signed to Century Media last year and released their debut LP. The band is about to embark upon a radical tour of the US alongside Pallbearer and Tombs. If you have any dignity, you better get your asses out to one or more of these shows and support the fuck out of Vattnet Viskar, Pallbearer and Tombs. For real, though. This will be life changing. Check out the dates below. Continue reading →
After recently completing a North American run with Deafheaven and Wreck and Reference, and with a European trek supporting Yob on the horizon, Pallbearer have announced another string of North American tour dates that will commence in October. Support on most dates of the tour will come from the likes of Tombs and Vattnet Viskar. You can check out all of the upcoming tour dates after the break.
Pallbearer’s Foundations of Burden will be released on August 19th via Profound Lore.
In addition to their forthcoming North American tour with Trash Talk, Retox and Shining, The Dillinger Escape Plan have announced the second leg of the tour. These new handful of dates will feature support from poppy math rockers Tera Melos and black metal outfit Vattnet Viskar. You can check out all current tour dates after the break.
This has been an amazing year for music. Not just metal, but a great year for all styles and genres. I have enjoyed so many different styles of music this year as well as many, many artists within each style and it was a real pain for me to make this list. I keep this list simply to full-length albums (or LPs, kids). I used to keep it strictly metal when it came to this list and I would weed out rock for its own list, but this year I included non-metal stuff on my list as well. Not a lot of non-metal, but some nonetheless. Continue reading →
