ALBUM REVIEW: Omega Infinity – Solar Spectre

If a band consists of members from Ne Obliviscaris and Todtgelichter, it’s a fair bet that the results will be 1) bloody dark, 2) as mad as a sheep in a tree.

valborg romantik

German dark primitive metal trio Valborg is releasing their fifth full length album titled Romantik on May 19, 2015 and June 16, 2015 on vinyl via Temple Of Torturous.

The band features current and former members of Owl, Klabautamann, Woburn House, Gruenewald and more. Romantik was produced, recorded and mixed by Oliver Weiskopf at Stonehenge Studios, mastered by Michael Schwabe at Monoposto Mastering.

After four albums based around experimental, skull-crushing doom, with Romantik Valborg dives deeper into the heart-tearing atmospheres of the abyss of which they’ve so boldly explored. Ambient synthesizers collide with wistful guitars, all slowly, purposefully floating above a foundation built upon pummeling rhythms, the band’s harsh, German vocal inflections adding further terror their profoundly bleak funeral power doom. Fans of Type O Negative, Vangelis, Killing Joke and Celtic Frost/Triptykon pay heed.

Romantik Track Listing:
1. Vampyr
2. Blitz aus Sodom
3. Comtesse
4. Sulphur Vitriol Angel
5. Kryptische Arroganz
6. The Haunted Womb
