VANHÄVD "Vila" Digipak CD

Vanhävd is black/doom metal project from Stockholm, Sweden. Among the band members are the creative brains behind synthwave/metal hybrid Irving Force and underground doom techno act Starving Insect, promising an unorthodox approach to metal song writing and production.

Expect pitch black sound design, funeral doom anti-grooves, melancholic melodies and blackened mid-tempo blasting.

Lyrical themes concern the intersection between visceral and existential horror, drawing inspiration from writers such as Norwegian antinatalist philosopher Peter Wessel Zapffe and horror author Thomas Ligotti.

Vila is Vanhävd’s debut album.

Final note: Fuck the loudness war. This production is purposefully highly dynamic and uncompressed, with a dynamic range of DR12. Play it loud!
