Ulveblood will open a fathomless void at Roadburn 2020

Trailblazing Dutch black metal band, Nihill effectively ended when singer and founding member M passed away last year, and while the heartbreak over the loss of our friend will never quite fade away, at least musically there are further chapters to look forward to. Main Nihill guitarist Vitriol has now created a new entity that naturally shares some strands of DNA with Nihill, not only in the musician’s perfectly unique style of writing and playing, but also in the use of some of the same session players. However, the swirling, hateful, mesmerising chaos of Ulveblod is a vertigo-inducing nightmare all of its own, as it will become apparent both when their debut album is released and when the band performs live for the first time.

We are extremely honoured, then, to have Roadburn 2020 host both of these occasions. Omnia Mors Aequat, as the album is ominously called, will be released on all formats on April 17th, the very same day Ulveblod will channel their uncontrolled fury onstage for the first time at Roadburn, where they will perform it in full accompanied by a special video produced for the occasion. Suffice to say this will surely be one of those “were you there?” shows that future Roadburn generations will evoke reverentially, so you know where to be when the time comes.

We don’t expect you to just take our word for it when it comes to this band, which is why – along with this announcement – we’re thrilled to be premiering the video for the first track to be taken from the above mentioned album, In The Shadow Of Sephirah Keter.
