Revelations of the Red Sword-new album

Svartidauði are an Icelandic black metal band from Kópavogur, Reykjavík  formed in 2002.The name ‘Svarti Dauði’ is Icelandic for “Black Death”. They released three demos before they released their debut album ‘Flesh Cathedral’ on Terratur Possessions in 2012, as well as a split EP with the Chilean black metal band ‘Perdition.’ ‘Flesh Cathedral’ was received well by the metal press, gaining positive reviews. Iceland Music Export writes that the band is “Already infamous for their chaotic and often violent live shows in their native Iceland…”

“I am the flame that burns in every heart of man, and in the core of every star. I am Life, and the giver of Life, yet therefore is the knowledge of me the knowledge of death.
-Liber Al vel Legis 2.6

On the 3rd of December 2018, six years to the day after the apocalypse, Svartidauði will unleash long awaited sophomore full length Revelations of the Red Sword upon the ashes of civilization.
Once again recorded and produced at Studio Emissary by Stephen Lockhart and featuring artwork by David Glomba, the combined result is equally stunning sonically as it is visually. The 6 track, 47 minute album marks Svartidauði’s second release on legendary German imprint Ván Records.

The Red Sword refers to the rays of a rising- and a setting sun, encompassing its contents in the fire and the fury of our world’s most creative and destructive force, the glowing God up above, the Sun – Celebrating its howling solar winds, all the while waiting with anticipation for the inevitable heat death of the universe”
