Yes, yes. It happened: Century Media Records signed Vattnet Viskar, the New Hampshire-based black metal band.
Formed in the fall of 2010, the band has quickly gained notoriety for their brooding, atmospheric sound. People have been telling me about these dudes for a few months now. And now, I know why.
Following a well received two-song demo in 2011, the band released a self-titled EP, available at their Bandcamp page.
We’re also streaming a track from that effort at the end of this post. These dudes are fucking righteous, and I’m totally digging their sound.
The band is planning a full U.S. tour for later this year, but the band has a few shows confirmed so far for 2012.
They’re playing the first annual Worcester Death Fest with Six Feet Under, Dying Fetus, Revocation, and more. They’re also booked for the Hopscotch Music Fest this September with Baroness and Sunn O))).
