Koldovstvo to perform Ни царя, ни бога in its entirety at Roadburn 2022

Roadburn will host the debut performance of anonymous black metal entity Koldovstvo in 2022. Shrouded in mystery and mysticism, Koldovstvo emerged as a fully-formed project earlier this spring, releasing debut album Ни царя, ни бога to universally-positive—if somewhat bewildered—reviews. 

Precious little is known about Koldovstvo or the individual(s) behind the band. The album title loosely means “No King, No God” or “no gods, no masters” when translated from Russian, with each of the six tracks included on the record simply denoted with a Roman numeral. 

This sense of anonymity allows Koldovstvo to create in a way that is unencumbered by expectations or regional sounds. We are proud to welcome them to Roadburn for this special performance – Koldovstvo will not make any additional appearances or embark on a supporting tour. 

Many artists aspire to imbue their music with a sense of mysticism but very rarely is it done with the spirit that Koldovstvo achieves. Through their command of shimmering chords, vocals that range from airy howls to near-religious chants and blackened dirges, Koldovstvo prove that black metal can still be greater than the music itself.
