That’s right — Sweden’s Eldkraft have signed with A.A. Nemtheanga’s Poison Tongue, which is a Metal Blade imprint label.
The band’s debut album Shaman will be available come May.
The band’s focus is on epic metal while drawing experimental influences from ancestral musical traditions of the North and spiritual guidance of its hermetic crafts.
Shaman is described in a press release as “a psychedelic trip gazed upon through contemporary elements, circumnavigating journeys of knowledge, growth and the ecstasy of the soul.”
Says Nemtheanga, who fronts Primordial: “I was turned on to Eldkraft by Mortuus from Marduk and instantly recognized even its raw demo form here was something genuine, and it had the potential to be a massive pagan metal album. Not the cartoon stuff but the real deal, immersed in ancient shamanism and traditions with the spirit of Bathory somewhere deep in its bones…Eldkraft!”
Shaman will be released the May 28.
