Today, black metal mystics Se Lusiferin Kannel stream the entirety of their striking debut album, Valtakunta, at heavily trafficked web-portal NoCleanSinging.com. Set for international release on February 1st via Signal Rex, hear Se Lusiferin Kannel's Valtakunta in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Originally self-released digitally during October 2017, Valtakunta is Se Lusiferin Kannelz's first public recording despite the band existing since 2012. Nevertheless, whether a band's first recording or their fiftieth, Valtakunta is a towering work shot through with stultifying, multi-dimensional textures. Comprising four songs in a staggering 71 minutes, Valtakunta creates a swirling, densely layered vortex of atmospheric black metal majesty. Indeed, Se Lusiferin Kannel are forging morbid manifestations of death, destruction, and apocalypse as if possessed. Dense though their ever-pulsing miasma may be, there's an acute attention to detail from this mysterious Finnish collective; listen carefully and one can even detect Theremin among the band's arsenal of atmospheric accoutrements. It's an overwhelming onslaught at times, but it's absolutely engrossing totality - or, one could say, four different totalities since each epic-length track is literally its own world. And already, a second album is on its way...
Featuring new cover art and bolstered remastered sound courtesy of Stephen Lockhart at Studio Emissary, Valtakunta will surely have Se Lusiferin Kannel spoken among such names as Paysage d'Hiver, Darkspace, Evilfeast, and Bekëth Nexëhmü soon enough.
